I don’t like change. I know that there are things about everyone that someone doesn’t like, but telling me that you don’t like something about me and that you want me to stop that is like telling me that you want me to change.
First it was my friend from my ‘Mere Misunderstanding’ posts. When she was telling me that she doesn’t like me correcting her all the time. She wanted me to change. She wanted me to stop being me. If I’m wrong, I’m wrong and will admit it (OK, it might hurt and I might not do it right away all the time, but over time I would)
But now my roommate is telling me things that she doesn’t like about me. I have some phrases that I just say, I don’t even think about them when I say them. But she doesn’t like them and doesn’t want need saying them to her. But it’s just apart of me. I can say them without thinking. I’ve tried not to say one since she told me, because I can understand what she means about it, that when she use having health issues she can’t just switch things. But by asking me not to say things that I just say it’s like along me not to be me.
I want to be accepted for me, not being asked to change for someone. This is me. I want my friends to accept me for who I am and not try to change me. Is it really that difficult to ask?
