Hi Quirky 😊
I hope you're having a lovely day and your critic is quiet. I thought about what you wrote. Both here and elsewhere about being kinder to myself too. So I'll try.
Oi obnoxious toad inner critic...
Really? How arrogant can you be? Letters to self on other people's threads now Nat?
Quirky won't care. She gets it. So yep. Rocking the letter to self in public woohoo.
You are so strange.
Uh yeah get with the program critic... We already had that discussion. Weird is good. Strange is ok. I'm fine with strange.
Ok. So what are you waffling about now? Get to the point. Stop wasting my time.
How am I a waste of time?
Well look at that. You've got nothing?
You have written to help others today. But there is the matter of the messages you haven't replied to. Failed at that as usual.
I'll get there when I get there.
Lame excuse. They're worried and you're too lazy to reply. Selfish as well as letting others down.
Ok yes. I haven't replied yet. Because they'll ask if I'm ok and I'm not good at BS.
They'll give up on you if you don't treat them better.
Yes. Maybe they will. Or they'll forgive me like they usually do when I go awol. But this is just part of me and if I'm tired and need space I'm tired and need space.
well aren't you a crappy excuse for a friend.
Sometimes yes. But mostly I'm ok. Remember what I said to the psych about the issues with Mum... She's human. She gives what she can give and I expect too much. Why can't that apply to me too?
That sounds like an excuse to be selfish. And a shitty parent and friend.
Ok. So what? So what if I'm selfish sometimes. I stuff up sometimes. So does everybody else and I don't hold it against them. Neither do you. So why when it is me do you jump down my throat screeching failure failure? I'm human not a bloody failure.
We'll agree to disagree.
I can live with that as long as you keep your opinion to yourself.
Interesting. Thanks Quirky.
