This last week has been very stressful for me. Poppie has been busy and hasn’t been as attentive as I am used to. I started a new workout routine, work has been stressful and my kids have been kids. Ugh.
I have been trying to remember to voice my needs. But when there is just too much going on I say the first thing that comes to mind. It is not usually what is bothering me nor have I explained it correctly. I really need to take a timeout and gather my thoughts before I try to come up with solutions. Poppie helps me with this as best as he can. But it is ultimately up to me to figure out and express how I am feeling.
I love shopping and am a very impulsive buyer. This retail therapy helps in the short term but of course only masks the actual issues. I am getting better at not spending money frivolously but still have a ways to go. Thankfully Poppie helps me not but stuff I don’t really want.
I am learning to seek out support from people who love me for me and accept me for me. This in turn is helping me be honest about my feelings even if I know they go against what I think everyone else will accept. I want to thank Poppie for all his support. I know I wouldn’t get thru it without him. Love you Poppie
