Sometimes I Feel Like A Lousy Person

I know I am not a bad mom, not a bad girlfriend, not a bad pet owner, but sometimes I have a hard time remembering that.

Take this morning, for instance. I did not want to get the boy up for school. Or ready. Or walk him to the bus stop. And I did not want to go out with the dog. I guess, now that I write them out, they are all reasonable things not to want to do, but this morning I felt lousy. Like I was letting them all down. Like I didn't want to honor any of my responsibilities.

Last night, I did not want to work out. At all. I just wanted to knit. That's all I've really been wanting to do lately, but there is never time. By the time there is time, I am too tired. And then I get depressed and then I feel even more tired.

Sometimes I feel like a lousy person. I just want to sit. And do nothing. And when I do that sometimes I feel better, but sometimes I feel worse. I feel lazy.

And now I feel like a lousy girlfriend because it is way easier to type "I feel" rather than say it.


  1. OMG wanting to sit and do nothing once in a while is totally normal. I have one of those nights at least once a week!!

  2. I am with you on feeling like a lousy person but since it is just me, it is all channeled against myself.

  3. I generally feel the way you do. There is nothing wrong with you. You are beautiful. And you are not a 'bad' anything. We all get weary for a variety of reasons. Some more than others. It is not wrong to want to rest and just do what you want or even nothing at all. Peace.

  4. We are always the hardest on ourselves. Sometimes, not "feeling" like doing something is the best time to rally and step up. Your decision will be blessed- and the pride you will feel... will change your attitude.

  5. You so have permission to have a lousy, I don't feel like making another PB and J sandwich day...I have so been there!! You are a beautiful person and don't let the lie that you are bad b/c you were not motivated one day.


Whatcha think?
