To be pissed off with people who invite themselves round
sharonthewaspandthewineywall · 22/07/2015 17:31
Without even checking whether its convenient?
Friend text earlier saying 'i will drop round later after work'
I feel like crap and just want to go to bed tbh.
I know im ungrateful but whenever I want to pop and see a friend I will call or text saying 'hi ive got a card/gift/fancy a catch up- when will be convenient?'
Grrrrr grumpy old cow emoticon needed

That's awful, I thought my friend was bad with "I was thinking of dropping by later/tomorrow". Well, think away, I'm going to be sleeping/hiding when you do! Then again, I'm really anti-social and only work on an 'I invite you, you invite me' bases.

Why do you think you are you afraid of telling the truth to others?
Anyone remotely sensitive, visiting you, will realise by your demeanour that you don't want them there, anyway.
You can work on being congruent by going on a 'mindful' course. It won't give you a ' I don't give a S**t attitude to others, but it will help you just be yourself.
The only behaviour that you can change is your own behaviour.
Since I learned to be myself, no one visits me without my say so. It is so energising to be yourself.
I just say stuff such as, 'lovely idea' and I ' love you to bits but I am tired out and I am going to tuck myself in bed up for an early night. ' speak soon, xx HIMH
I want to keep my lovely friends but I am more important to ME than them.
