did it ever occur to you that maybe i’m not being selfish and unaccommodating, and that YOU’RE actually being selfish and inconsiderate?
did it occur to you that i might not be annoyed by the fact that i’m doing you favors left and right, but that i’m actually annoyed that you have a tendency to be such a baby and a brat? did it occur to you that i might be tired of condoning and enabling that? did it occur to you to take a step back that maybe my attitude isn’t the problem, but yours is? did it occur to you to even think that i can’t even push myself to ask YOU for things most of the time because i fear i’ll set you off? people have limits.
you get annoyed at me for being irritated that i had to do something for you. make a phone call and postpone your dermatologist appointment. and you say “it’s just a phone call.” my point exactly, it’s just a phone call. why do i have to do it? the phone’s already right next to you. and it’s not just about a stupid phone call. it’s about everything else you ask for because you feel like it’s only right that everything is done for you. it’s not just about me getting tired of things you make me do, it’s about me having to alter my life because of you. for you. you hold me back from everything. and now that i’m finally taking a stand and trying to live my own life just as any human being has a right to do, you take it against me.
yes, i’m irritated. what, now i’m not allowed to feel irritated? yes, i’m annoyed. what, now you still wanna control our emotions? your problem isn’t that i’m annoyed and irritated, your problem is that i’m the only one who’s transparent enough that i can’t hide whenever i’m irritated. because i guarantee you, everyone else in this household feels the same way i do.
yes, i’m irritated. i’m allowed to get annoyed, irritated, mad, whatever. stop trying to control everything, stop trying to manipulate everyone. yes, i’m irritated. people have limits. no it’s not about just a damn phone call.
