Sometimes I just don't get people...

I'm pretty excited about what I'm doing here.  I've gotten a great response from people I don't even know and thank you all for that.  I thought I would keep this a secret from people I know because it would be too embarrassing.  But I've ended up telling a number of people I know and they've been really cool and supportive about it.

This week I've told people I really care about what I'm doing and there wasn't the slightest acknowledgement.  Like I told them I had a mole removed.  I even showed them the front page and there was that blank nod of disunderstanding.  Didn't think I wanted them to know but they're complete lack of interest sort of hurts.  I just don't get how you could have a loved one tell you something they're excited about and not ask a single question.

  1. Hmm, google just popped up an "Irritable Bowl Syndrome" ad under this post. Trying to figure out what that says about me.

  2. How are you doing? I've been checking back throughout the week in hopes of a positive turn around on this. I was (and still am really) more comfortable talking about my blog and my new energies with people outside of my closest circle. I hope you've had a good week.

  3. Thanks for asking, Holly. I've had family in town all week and it's been incredibly stressful. I won't go into the whole ordeal (they may actually show interest in this some day) but I really appreciate you're checking in and I'll be updating soon.

  4. I have the same challenge dealing with my family. I think that everyone gets comfortable in the "life role" and your decision to change your life makes some people uncomfortable. Maybe they second guess their own situation. Does that make sense?

    I found your blog through "Swim Bike Mom" and I'm checking in and rooting for you!
