SELFISH ?

Selfish ?

Help I have this problem again and again.....! So today i went in a church with my family and...the church is not really my thing..... But my parents really wanted to go there and I really tried not to annoy them because that already happened yesterday  so I tried to ask really nice "wen are you guys ready to go" not because i wanted to annoy them just because the church is not my thing  and I thought everything was ok because no one told me to stop. So then i sat down pretty much everywhere war you could possibly sit down because I am still very tired (I have a jetlagge )   and then we finally got out of the church and I said "are we going to the car now?" And my Vater said "no I want to go around the church" so we did and then I got annoyed. Then I sat down and my mom secretly took a picture of me and then went on. a minute or two later I catch-up and she showed me the picture and said"do you notice waht bad energy your creating ? You wer annoying from the moment we got out of the car ! We all know that you have a headacae (witch a did have) and your tired but still you don't have to annoy us. I didn't like sitting by a playground for hours wenn you and your friends used to play but I didn't annoy you!"    And she is right but I really tried to not be annoying but I justed can't get it right..... So waht do you guys think du you have any advice ? .......  :(

  • Wait I just realized that my post up there sounds like I always go to church (witch I don't and I also don't have to) we were just looking at a church because we are in a different country just to say that :) by the it's totally ok if you like the church ! I didn't want to blame anyone
  • Thanks for the advice
  • My advice is tell her you don't like church my family gives me the choice what I believe and I think you should too have the choice whether to go or not and it is not selfish it is fine to not like something. Hope this helps

  • I think that since you were jet-lagged, had a headache, asked to leave after church, which you made clear is not your thing, you shouldn't be blamed. Try sitting your mom down and calmly explaining why you didn't feel great there and how her comment hurt you. Try to stay calm and collected, and maybe she'll understand.

Drama vs. Empathy

There's a lot of stuff going on at my school right now - a lot of personal drama and just plain rudeness. Even if the frequent judgmental comments are not aimed at me (though they were last year), whenever it happens around me I start to feel a bit ill. I guess one could say I'm extremely empathetic when it comes to these things. I've talked about it with my parents and teachers but haven't completely revealed the full extent of it - I'm really nervous about standing up and I hate it. I've…

Operation: Support NMG Artists

In lue of the message board Julia created back in September (about NMG having a popularity/heirarchy issue where people feel unnoticed) I wanted to do something about it. While this is very common problem throughout all social media platforms, NMG is just small enough where we can band together and make a difference. Therefore I’m starting this “project” if you will to make the initiative to comment on fellow NMGer’s drawings (and other creations of course! But since art is my main focus,…

Dealing with Jealousy

“I've recently really been struggling with jealousy- typically having to do with my friends family lives, hobbies, or other friends. I understand how toxic it is to feel this way. Do you have any tips on how to avoid feeling sad for missing out and other things like that?” -Anonymous I feel you--I’ve dealt with a LOT of jealousy over the past several years. First, I wouldn’t think of feeling jealous on its own as toxic--rather, what’s toxic is letting the jealousy negatively affect your…

Feeling Like a Second Choice

“I feel like I am always the second choice for my friends at school. They always want to sit with other people or work with other people. They are not mean to me or anything and I think they do like me but I dont think they like me as much as they like anyone else. I feel like I am overreacting about this and I dont know what to do about it.” -Ellie Oof I know how you feel, Ellie :’( I’ve struggled with feeling like my friends’ second choice for years, it really wears down on you after awhile.…
