Hurt feelings everywhere
I have decided that I am totally useless at handling feelings. And today was a feeling day. It never rains but it pours they say.
1. Hurt feelings between good friends (not me ok) who used to be equal at work and now one thinks the other one talks down at her and thinks that the other one is perasan she is so good. Probably right too about the attitude but I think this must be a common problem when friends get promoted eh? Am torn between telling off friend A for being such a bossy boot and slapping friend B for being such a sensitive person.
2. Hurt my daughter's feelings today , when I came home to find out that three solats were missed ...and later she told me everyday I am telling her how disappointed I am with her. First, I said sorry for hurting her feelings, and second I said, while I didn't mean to hurt her feelings, what did she expect, balloons?? I have high expectations of my Islamic school educated children about meeting her prayers..it's not easy ...and if they don't meet the standard, I would be upset. ..but the disappointment is with the behaviour and not the person. You are also NOT compared to anyone else in the family, ok. You are special but you are NOT going to get away with computer games and WII the entire holiday and expect me not to say anything about it. Why can't they self monitor?
3. Hubbs very distracted today. Came to get me like at 9 pm and then won't talk to me, instead , busy fiddling with the handphone...I asked many times what went wrong and what happened but he said it was ok. This from the man who told me yesterday that I was the calm oasis in his life!! And now, evasive. Oh well, I will leave him to it...I'm sure he will open up when he feels ready to do so....Though I wonder what it is....?? I think he is too penat lar...
Hope tomorrow brings more sunshine!!
