Having a Whinge

Posted by MANDI at 8:38 PM
So something happened this morning that hurt my feelings. I don't want to be all cryptic-like but I can't really go into detail so just bear with me while I have a bit of a whinge.

Rationally I know that it's just my ego that's been a bit bruised. And that those responsible mean less than zero to me and my life. But it still rankles a bit. Okay, a lot. And yes, ridiculously more than it should. It should be a brush-it-off-and-get-over-it kind of thing but instead it's stewing away and making me more frustrated as much over what happened as by my own inability to shrug it off.

So more as an affirmation for myself than anything else I'm going to make a few points:

1. I'm not actually invisible and I think it is incredibly rude when people treat me like I am.
2. Just because I might not be on your radar doesn't mean my opinions and ideas are any less valid or correct.
3. I am intelligent, funny and all kinds of awesome. The fact that you don't know that, or can't be bothered finding out, is your loss.

And speaking of all kinds of awesome - tomorrow marks five years since my first blog post as Red Dirt Mummy! Give my poor battered ego a little boost and tell me something you love about me and you'll earn my undying gratitude. And maybe a packet of TimTams.

And you could also go like my Facebook page (if you haven't already done it) - that'd make me feel a whole heap better...

I hate that, whent the rational self loses to the irrational self!

Maybe whoever/whatever it was that happened has their own issues and they are really insecure and threatened by your obvious awesomeness and just couldn't face up to that?

You are awesome, great recipes, great stories, great gratituesday (have I used the word great enough yet???)

Tomorrow will be better!

You're right, if the person/persons involved can't be bothered to take notice of you it is their loss. Maybe they are well meaning but afflicted with tunnel vision, like myself. It appalls me how I can ignore or simply be unaware of rather important stuff, and I am trying to change this - I don't like that I behave this way. Or, maybe they really are jerks. Either way, know that you have an army of appreciative readers who love seeing your opinions on things and love your writing!

I love that your blog is always such a happy place to visit! And I love Gratituesday! And I love your recipes and meal plans! And I love how you always comment on my blog, even when I've written something completely uncommentworthy. We should meet one day, so I can buy you a drink and thank you properly for all the happy moments you've given me. Sincerely. xxx

You are one of the best people I know. Don't let someone who is not worth it upset you. Thank you for calling in to see us this afternoon with boy child (and trophy and medal) and girl child with lots of smiles. xx
