  5. I have an abundance of STUFF lying around in my apartment. I spent the better part of my day unpacking , organizing, and properly disposing of old work documents, and it looks like I did NOTHING!!!!

    • But know that you did and be proud. Continue and eventually you’ll notice the difference. Isn’t it amazing how much STUFF we accumulate!! You’ll get there! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I agree. Al spent so much time packing before we moved here, so his logic is, it is STAYING in the box. “I spent DAYS packing. My work better mean something.” Men are funny.

    • If you never remember anything else I ever tell you remember this…Men really are very simple creatures…they really are! WE make them out to be so much more complicated than they are. And that’s because WE are so complicated. But if you ask Al “what ya thinking?” and he’s says “Nothing”…he means it. They really are thinking nothing. We don’t believe it because WE are always thinking something…trust me this is very sage advice and it took me 50 something years to learn it!! Don’t wait that long, if you learn it now it will save you from many an argument. They pretty much say what they mean and there is no hidden meaning…no matter how hard we try to read one into it.
      Enjoy the rest of your unpacking!! xo

    • True. He tells me he is simple all the time. Men are too simple for me to understand. I feel like I am light years ahead of them. But anyway, I don’t mind if he says hell with unpacking. He probably is offended with me taking stuff out of the boxes because he packed them, but I need that stuff, so I take it out of the boxes. Plus, if I see another U-Haul label, I feel like I am going to put graffitti on it. I am SICK of looking at boxes. One of them is condescendingly sitting next to my head and laughing at me. Bastard. LOL. And I try to wrap my head around the lack of a hidden meaning, but my autistic nature makes that even more difficult. I forget that NOT EVERYONE has difficulty communicating verbally. And I’m enjoying my unpacking/organizing. I’ve been doing it for a week, even though it is more of a mess than when I originally started. It once again looks like I’ve not done a damn thing today. Oh well. I’m stealing his room. It looks as good as it is EVER going to get.

    • Believe him when he tells you he’s simple…they all are. What they do better than us is they don’t beat a dead horse, they don’t make mountains out of molehills, they get over things…we could learn a lot from them. I bet he really doesn’t mind one way or the other if you unpack. He probably just feels tired and is just as happy living out of the boxes for now. So go on with your unpacking/organizing..deep down he appreciates it. I know, it’s really hard to believe that lack of hidden meaning one but it is so.
      Enjoy yourself, eventually it will look better and organized!! xo ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you, beautiful. But in the defense of women, we, especially in this day in age, carry more burdens. Plus, things are together because of the effort WE put in. And yes, you are right. He is happy that I am discovering things for him. He was mad that I moved a box around, but he will be all right.

    • Ah my little grasshopper we must turn our view around from burden to pleasure. If something feels like a burden you must view it from another angle or rid yourself of it, if possible. What is it that you are defining as a burden?
      The effort should be mutual and yes this is possible.
      Lastly, you always make me smile…I love that about you!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

    • Thanks. And I guess I am just tired of moving once I get used to something. My whole life has been that. It is a burden that I can’t be honest with how I feel about stuff without feeling like I said something wrong. It is very off-putting and upsetting to me. I can’t always be this positive ray of sunshine like everyone wants me to be! That is my biggest burden. I don’t feel very close to anyone anymore, and it hurts me. That is why I have been lashing out. Sorry.

      I guess I can look at it as a test of Independence and how self-sufficient I am. I try not to be selfish, but I keep being pushed in that direction because I am frustrated with being taken incorrectly and not feeling validated as a human being for expressing my thoughts and emotions. I constantly try to make silk out of a sow’s ear, but sometimes I want to recognize the sow’s ear for what it is and find beauty in that.

    • You know what, the way you just expressed yourself was beautiful! That’s all you have to do. You don’t have to be a ray of sunshine all the time, nobody is. Not me, not anyone. Having to uproot yourself a lot is very hard, you make connections with people and then you have to start all over again. Especially for woman, we like to bond and have close girlfriends and people we can confide in. I think it’s a lot easier on guys. I don’t think you are selfish at all…look at what you do for work…you care for people. If you always express yourself from a place of honesty and love yet say what you are truly feeling than you’ve honored yourself and you cannot control how others feel about what you say. Nor is it your job to do so. We are all different and your job is to make you happy. When you happy that helps others around you to be happy too. I love what you say about the sow’s ear and you should do exactly that, take it for what it is, don’t try to make it something it’s not, and appreciate the beauty for what it is.
      You can take control of your life and it’s direction rather than it take control of you. When you do take control you feel more confident and at peace. I have Angel cards and I draw one daily to see what they say I just drew one for you and I’m going to start a new comment and type what it has to say for you…
