Love – hate relationships


I have a few love – hate relationships that make me crazy.

I love my family and then they break my heart and here I am, fuming about them whole day and thinking about not calling them tomorrow!

I love my profession and then somebody or many-bodies leave their work to me, do not appreciate my meticulous and hard-work, or try to manipulate or use me, and here I am, complaining about them and almost resigning from my post!

I love my home country and then something happens, and here I am, thinking that it would not hurt to hear negative things about it or defend it if I had not loved it so much, and here I am wishing I had not loved it. But the truth is that this love is the strongest one. The love for the homeland.

I think the philosophers (or was it psychologists?) were right that it hurts if you care. Detachment is the path to happiness.

If only I could.

  1. I don’t know what is going on in your life but it seems to me that you need to make some space between you and the people driving you crazy. Start with your family. You don’t have to call them tomorrow or any day. You need some alone time to heal and gather your strength..

    1. sounds about right… it all ends in me, to be able to draw the borders and stop doing more than what I am capable of, or would like to do. this is a real struggle. one person and one situation at a time, I will see what I can do
