What Does it Take?

Have you ever had someone in your life that despised you no matter how nice you were to them? Whether it's a family member or co-worker, it can make life very difficult. I'm someone who is very conscious of other people and their feelings. When I'm in a situation I try to think about the other person, as well as myself. My mom's the same way. I think it may have something to do with us both being Libras. Regardless of this fact, there are still people out there that are willing to turn on you after you've done something nice for them. The only thing that I can attribute it to is the fact that these people are so filled with self-loathing that it permeates everything around them. When you're like that, all you have at the end of the day is your hatred of others to keep you company. How sad is that? What does it take to make these people see how wrong they are? Apparently not death. The death in my family over a month ago derailed some of the ugliness for a short amount of time, but now it's back with a vengeance. If people spent their time getting their lives straight, then they wouldn't have time to spread their hatred around.

  1. How appropriate for my family also. My Mom and Dad have been together 23 years now and the outlaws are still try to make their lives miserable or try to make Dad chose. Its not that they dislike mom, they just want to come first and mom second in Dad's life. Dad is also a Libra and doesn't like confrontation. He is kind-hearted and doesn't want feelings hurt. Mom (who is an Aquarian) says his parents have mentally abused him while he was growing up (by making him feel guilty when he didn't do then and doesn't do now as they ask) and at 48 years old he still seeks their approval. What mom finds interesting in the whole scenario is that there are 2 other brothers and a sister yet dad's parents do not intrude on the others as they do him. It's like its o.k. to walk on Dad. Mom and dad think that the outlaws feel it is easier to intrude on them because there are no children involved - just me the cat. This has caused mom to hate the Outlaws and cringe everytime they come to visit. Its easier with them living 5 hours away now because they used to live 20 minutes away. Now they come every couple of months instead of a couple times a week.

    Thank you for your post. I can tell you have a beautiful heart. Please stay that way.
