Time, there’s only so much of it.

Don’t you hate it when people expect you to have all the time in the world, when really you’re crunching? I feel like that’s happening to me right now… why must I have a social life, as well as go to school? by the time I get home I am all peopled out, and then people expect me to interact with them…. I feel like I’m pouring out all my politeness at school, and then when I get home it’s all gone. sadness. It wouldn’t be so bad if there wasn’t so much drama going on. at school AND at home…. and church…. It’s frustrating… and stressfull. Why can’t I just stay in my room and do nothing for all my days? Why must I waste my energy by watching that movie with the Youth group? What’s the importance of thanksgiving with the family? Do I have to leave my room for supper? can’t I just stay in there and pretend like I’m the only one here?

Okay, that was a look into my mind for this week. Maybe you’ll be able to decifer what’s going on better than I can. lol.

    Amen. I get very peopled out too; it’s why I don’t often invite people over. It’s not cause I don’t like them, but sometimes time by myself is needed.
    But oh my! I am excited for Thanksgiving!

    I know what you mean about getting all peopled out. And there is only so much time–which is why it’s so important to set priorities AND limits. For me, that means choosing wisely which things I’m going to participate in and which I’m not. It means saying no to movie nights when I’ve got school to do–but not complaining when someone interrupts me wanting to chat. Priorities means focusing on quality time with people–and knowing when you’ve got to do something else. But priorities also means that we make relationships with people a priority–and realize which relationships need to be a priority. For me, my relationship with Anna and Casandra are of top priority. My roommates deserve that. Then I place priority on family relationships. After that comes school, work, etc. relationships. If I get “all peopled out” at work and then come home and shun my roommates or get into fights with family, I’ve got my priorities out of order.
