You have people in your life for reasons, sometimes known, sometimes not known. What does it mean when you feel at odds with the people in your life? When all at the same time they disappoint you? When you need to talk to someone and you pick up the phone and then realize - there's no one to call?

Is it the common denominator, which would be me? Or am I missing the message...

Would love to hear some thoughts..thanks.

metromint,

You sound like a pretty deep thinker to me.

Sometimes - I think - it's all about alignment.

About aligning ourselves with the ones whom will teach us what we need to know/learn.

Other times, I think - that they are simply what is not in our own best interests.

Only you can decipher the difference.

Takes some down-right nitty-gritty honest converstaions with ourselves to sort it all out.

I say, trust your gut.

Might want to also just ask yourself - is this person good for me, for my own growth? And wait and see what surfaces.

For me, I usually get either a very peaceful feeling (meaning that there is an opportunity for growth) or else - I get this real heavy, uncomfortable feeling deep in my solar plexes telling me that this particular person is 'bad news.'

Other times - actually - it is none of the above.

People do have their own limitations, afterall and will periodically disappoint you.

The thing is - do they disappoint you 24/7 - (in which case - bad karma) or just some of the time?

Do you have realistic or unrealistic expectations for these folks?

Are you expecting more than they are able to give?

Takes some real hard soul-searching on your own to figure it all out.

(Hope I've helped.)

Thanks truthBtold. You did help.

I know who does not belong in my life....it's a matter of me following through with what I already know. And some of it is as you said, expecting more from some then they are able to give. And I seem to have a lot of those people in my life. Hence, the disappointment.

My son returned to his drug addiction. My family, who live 800 miles from me, don't want to talk about it because it's hard for them. My daughter who lives nearby, has a hard time even thinking about it and the father, well we don't talk at all.

I am always considered the strong one. Everyone always says that. I know that I am but even the strong ones need a shoulder now and then. it is during these times that I search for comfort and get let down, and that makes me wonder.....
