I have a new pet. His name is Doggy. Just because he's obviously a monkey and I want to laugh at myself for naming him after a different animal. I am allergic to dogs (and other cute animals) so I am giving my love to this little guy. Photos were taken in front of my bath towel and a few hangers. I was to lazy to remove them while taking the images. Hehehe.
The next words are a first for me!
Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. There are 15 bloggers who picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today, we are all going to divulge our topics at the same day! Here goes mine.
My subject is "When unwanted advice is given in a nice way but perhaps a little too persistent, how do you respond?" and it is submitted by More Organized Mayhem.
I am a worry wart. Sometimes I make this face because I'm worried. Sometimes I do that just because I find something funny.
Most of the time, I hope I look like this.
When I worry about
everything something, all the itty bitty details are slowly coming to me and I worry about all those too. It's an unending cycle of worrying and anxiety. I don't like it one bit and I'm working on it but I still have a few worry frenzies here and there. The main problem when those frenzies occur is.. I don't want to listen to any advice. So every advice given to me in nice or persistent ways are all ignored.
I feel bad that I'm that way because I know people only want what is best for me. They offer their thoughts and wisdom to help me and to stop me from obsessing over circumstances I cannot control. I realized that maybe I do not need advice. I only need people to listen to my rants patiently until I get over my worries. It usually takes a whole day but when I'm over it, I try to move on and hopefully, I won't obsess on it again.
I know that my loved ones will not stop giving me advice even when I say that I only need them to listen. They give me 100% of their love that way. So I try to be more open minded even if I'm feeling anxious or scared of the future. I push myself to think about different options and situations for me. It's not easy the first time but it gets better. I actually get to reuse the advice on other things. It's helpful even if it wasn't used on the purpose it was intended for.
