A lot of my question in life seems to be what to do, with this situation or that!
I just need to talk it through, get suggestions I guess, which isn't really unusual.
I will be brief, I am tired.
Two years ago, I gave a woman outside the grocery store a ride home with her groceries. She needed one and was asking a man who said no. I just wanted to help.
I gave her my number. At the time, I really didn't know many people. She calls every day to every other day to ask for rides.
I have done it for two years.
I need to cut down or not do it. I need to say maybe once a week or once every other week. I hate such things.
She drains my energy. She yells and talks the whole time. And criticizes me that I don't 'talk enough'!
I know it is hard for her.
We don't have hardly anything in common. She does not like cats, my favorite, she loves shopping, I hate it. She does not like silence, I love it. She is extrovert, I am introvert.
I love nature, she would rather be in a mall, I won't go in one.
Well, I want to help, but I need to set a boundary.
I also need to save energy to have with other people who do like to do the same things I do, who are quiet like me and are ok with my not talking.
any suggestions. I know Kyle, I think it was you, wrote something along these lines, you wanted your friends to ask how you are instead of just for a ride? if I remember correctly, forgive me if I am mixed up please.
