Gonna Be Selfish

that's my new years resolution.  Last year I gave so much of myself to people around me and got not alot in return.  It also almost drove me to self destruction so I'm pulling in the reins and believe it or not, it ain't easy!  I'm so used to giving and jumping to demands from friends and family.  I have to really concentrate and think twice about what I am about to do, every day, cause pleasing others is a serious problem I have.  So this year, it's me and my kids...they are 5 and 6 years and deserve all I have to offer.

That's a good resolution. Family and friends can be very demanding. I have the same problem with mine. I don't think they mean to take advantage, but once they know that you will bend over backwards for them it is hard for them to not come to you with every single problem that they have. Good luck and you are right. Children do deserve all we have to offer.
