I swear, I’m getting too old for this. Even though I had most of yesterday to recover from Saturday’s festivities, I’m still absolutely spent today. I’m doing my best to tough it out through the work day, but nothing would make me happier than to crawl into bed for the next week and hibernate.
I know I’m not the only person out there who feels this way. There are some people in my life who energize me and lift me up. Those are the folks who I will do anything for, because their love for me is genuine, and their needs are as well.
Then, of course, there are those who simply drain me. They are people I cannot extricate myself from for reasons beyond my control. Yet, being around them for extended periods of time leave me feeling completely spent and exhausted. They are the soul vampires, the emotionally exhausting people. Their needs from me are based not on the collective good, but only what I can do for them. It is beyond frustrating.
So, my apologies, friendos. I’m doing my best to pull it together and have something worthwhile to say here, but at the moment I’m failing. Sometimes in my cranky pants funk, I can come up with something silly or humorous, but today, I’ve got nothing. Please bear with me as the batteries slowly recharge, and the awkward saurus gets back on her feet.
