All of the sudden, everybody cares

All of the sudden, everybody cares - Linda Bruce

I am tired of being told that I need to exercise, change my eating habits, or see someone else. Why on Earth people don’t get it that I don’t like being told what to do! As for exercising, I simply detest the idea of going to a gym and start moving around, exercising, stretching and sweating in front of strangers.

As far as I am concerned, I don’t have to do anything that I’m not comfortable with. People can continue to think whatever they want, I don’t give a damn.

No one has been here for me when I hit rock bottom. Why should I care all of the sudden to what they have to say? Since when everyone took a keen interest in my life? I haven’t seen anyone knocking on my door when I was literally down. Now all of them give me friendly advices. How come?

They can keep them to themselves. I am getting annoyed with this endless wave of willingness to help me. I know it’s not something I can rely on. I wonder why do they even bother to pretend that they care. Why playing all this charade? Don’t they have a spine? If they turned their back on me, I would respect them more if they would stick with their initial choice. 

I don’t like it when they change sides according to the wind’s direction, or whatever is more profitable for them. 

Tonight when I was on my way out from work, while I was walking towards my car in the parking lot, I saw my mother leaning on my car. I did not expect to come out of the office and find her there. To be honest, after our last fight, I did not expect to see her any time soon. Not after I have told her that I wanted her to keep her distance from me and let me live my life according to my wishes. I was fed up hearing how much I disappointed her and how I was supposedly wasting my life away. 

As I got closer to the car, she started to talk to me. She said she did not wish to fight with me anymore. She added that this was her last attempt of telling me what to do. She handed me a paper, a flyer for a free fitness class somewhere in the city. She continued saying that she finally realized that the tug of war had to stop and she was going to mind her own business.
