Why Bother?

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

I'm having a "why bother" day.

Why bother dieting and exercising? I'm not losing any weight. Why bother looking for a job? No one has replied to my resume. Why bother trying? DH still says I have a "bad attitude." Why bother keeping up with the house? The kids just come along and mess it up. Just generally, why bother?

It's also a "why not" day.

Why not take a nap? Why not eat that chocolate in the fridge (the kids will never notice it's missing)? Why not look into plastic surgery and take the easy way out? Why not let the kid run rampant and do whatever he wants (so long as it's safe)? Why not eat something bad for me, it'll make me feel better? Just generally, why not?

I need some help getting out of this mood, it's no good for anyone.

    I know exactly how you feel, and I can never find a reason either....

    I wrote about these feelings in the thread Turning Little problems into Catastropies in Some Kind of Crazy. I feel so overwhelmed by the little things in life that I can't see the big picture. It can be frustrating to do the same things everyday and see no results. Hang in there.

    Because its tax day?????!!!!

    I've got nuthin'...

    I generally embrace those "why bother" days as a necessary low counterpart to all the good days that I have. Feel it, live it, ponder it, sleep on it. Just don't let it derail you.

    Because YOU are important ! Because being overweight keeps you from doing some of the things you love. Because it's keeping you from experiencing some wonderful adventures. Because people love you and want you around for a long time. BECAUSE......BECAUSE...... The list could go on forever. make your own list and look at it every time you feel this way. Take care of yourself. We Care!! emoticon
