Walk a mile in your shoes

I am not perfect, by any means. But I try to be as considerate of others. I don’t say certain things because I know that there is no point in starting an argument. I keep things bottled up inside because I realize other people’s reactions and try to avoid them as much as possible. Usually I am not scared to say how I feel, or what’s bothering me. But when I know that the reaction from the other person will be extreme and blown out of proportion, I avoid speaking up.

I would like to think of myself as a nice person. A person who is considerate of others. A person who generally puts others first. But lately I have reached the point where I could care less. I’ve stopped caring, I’ve stopped trying, I’ve completely given up.

As human beings, we need to make mistakes in order to learn from them. We need to date the wrong people, be friends with the wrong people, make the wrong choices and decisions so that we can later do the right things, date the right one, and eliminate the friends that are only creating negativity in our life. I’ve made so many mistakes; I’ve jumped into decisions without thinking them through. And even though at the time I regret it, afterwards I am able to see the mistakes I made and in turn make better decisions.

I try to put myself in other people’s shoes. I try to see things from their perspective. Sometimes I get it, and sometimes I don’t. I wonder if the same people try to see things from my perspective. I wonder if they get where I am coming from. I’m sure a lot of people do put themselves in my shoes, but I’m sure there are a few that don’t and only think of themselves.

I really want to go away… pack up and leave for awhile. Maybe just a week, maybe a month. But I want, no I need to go somewhere warm and relax for awhile. Maybe it’s time for that couples vacation.
