Hit like a ton of bricks

So for the past few days I have been trying to write a post about the great experience I had at Carolina Blogging but I have not been able to bring myself out of the doldrums. After a wonderful Saturday that was filled with learning, growth, networking, and a fun bridal shower (later in the day), the next day absolutely crushed me.

I am not going to get into details on exactly everything that happened. Let’s just say that I put a lot of time and work into doing something for someone and the proper appreciation wasn’t shown. I don’t expect people to kiss my ass and and worship me but what happen to the days of proper etiquette?!

I am someone that lets things effect me BIG TIME. It ruined the rest of my Sunday and most of Monday. It is still affecting me as I write this now. Sometimes I wish I could have the “eff it” mentality that people think I do but things get to me. Especially when I take time out of my life to try to do something for someone to make them happy.

So, maybe I should get tougher skin. Maybe I should have the “Out for me and only me” mentality. But I don’t want to be seen as a mean person. Although there are people that already think I am. I have honestly been going back and forth on what to do. Or rather, how I should be from now on.

How would you handle a situation?

    There is no need to change eho you are to accomodate anyone else! Know your worth, and let foolish minds realize it when it's too late. By the time they catch up with the rest of the folks that know how great you are… You will be out of their "reach" the next time the require your assistance.
