Quick Thought Session 19: Stop Making Everything about You!

Okay booboo, I came to you for advice. I really wanted to open to you and share whatever the hell I was going through at that particular moment in time but instead of listening to me you made it about you.

“Oh why didn’t I tell you before?”

“Why weren’t you the first to hear my cries?”

“Oh what is it about you that I didn’t want to open up to first?”

Stop! Hold up! Wait a minute. I am here now, asking you for help. This right now isn’t about you but about me. If you can’t lend me an ear and help me out with my issues, then you know there will no next time especially when you just made it about you.

Booboo, not everything revolves around you. Sometimes people aren’t going to put you as their number one go to person for their problems. That is not their job. They aren’t here to build your ego and stroke your arm. They are here to live their best life that they need to live. Your job is to have a bit of compassion by listening and not turning it around into a “me, me, me” situation. Because next time, I will not go to you and I will seek out someone else who doesn’t turn my issues around into a “you” issue.

So, next time just listen. Be my friend and try not to overanalyze everything. Give me a hug and let us do something fun together. You got this!
