You Ever Wonder?

I often wonder when will I grow up & learn that not everyone is like me.I often give too much of myself & trust way too much, only to find out later, that is not how it was seen on the other side...

oh nothing big or bad happened & I am not hurt or anything like that, I was just thinking about people & some of my connections to them, how they see me & how I saw them...I guess it is mostly my issue, as I have been told many times, I am too naive. I guess someday I should grow up. Or get smart.

But what is this mean really, does it mean we should stop being nice to people? does it mean we should suspect everyone of having ulterior motives? does this mean we should shy away from forging friendships? I do not think I can do this, I rather like people. Every time I see some one's shortcoming, I remember I have many of my own & try to take them as they are, but often this is not enough.

I was thinking about something fun to write about today, but I guess you can not always feel good...the fact that I have been ill for almost 3 months does not help either...but hey life is short, so moving on to better things...I will have beads later today, mostly focal beads and 2 small sets...but all yummy...I will send out an email letting you know when they are up...PS I did not make any tree focal beads, do you want me to make some, let me know, I almost in the mood, this tree bead is from the past, years ago in fact...

In the mean time go send a nice note to a friend or someone you want to make in to a friend...Trust with open arms.

I think most "good" people feel the way you do from time to time. I try to keep in mind that I can control only myself and not others. A "good" person, which you are, who is wronged by someone else is still a good person. The other person is only creating bad karma for himself. I don't think you need to grow up; you just need to continue to be the good, trusting, friendly person that you are. The world needs more people like you!
OK I will get off my soap box now!

VERY well said Ginny! I so agree with the bad karma thing. I've seen it happen so many times. Be well Jelveh and try not to dwell too much on the negative. Just be the person you want to be and hold your head high! -Lisa

The tree bead is lovely. Your writing speaks to my heart and expresses the way I have felt many times. Keep making beads and writing because it encourages people like me.
