Friendly Fill-Ins Week 100

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 100

It’s Friday and I again participate in the Friendly Fill-Ins, hosted by McGuffy’s Reader and 15andmeowing So here we go:

1. Being too hard on myself is one of my biggest problems. I struggle with this for nearly all of my life, but I hope my therapist is right: He is a firm believer that a change for the better is always possible!

2. I am looking forward to have icecream tomorrow! I hope the weather forecast is correct, and the sun will shine for the whole day!

3. I have a hard time being happy for my sister-in-law, who is pregnant. We never were able to have children, even with medical help. Sometimes it is just painful to watch when this dream becomes true for other people.

4. Finding out the many possibilities a smartphones offers is easy for me. Very often I am able to help others with their new smartphones, too. It’s always fun!

  1. I’m still too hard on myself too. Perfectionist is my problem. They tell me it’s a Virgo thing.

    It would be hard to see others pregnant when you’re not able. Very hard.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

  2. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I always enjoy your answers. I am sorry that you were unable to have children and now have to watch someone else being pregnant, that must be very tough. You are lucky you understand phones and technology-I am challenged in all technical things.

  3. I think many of us tend to be too hard on ourselves, we are often our worst critics. Your counselor is right, we have the potential and the ability to change things we don’t like about our lives until we take our very last breath!

    We had icecream this weekend too… cherry nut with chocolate topping in mine. Chocolate makes everything even better! Papa Bear loves icecream and would eat it everyday if he could. 🙂

    Not being able to have children is a very painful thing, my daughter and my niece also fall into this category, as do friends I’ve known. It is hard to see others so happy with new babies when you can’t have your own. I know God must have a reason for this, but I wish we knew what it was. It is unlikely that I will ever have any grandchildren of my own, and that is hard for me too as my friends and sister share the photos and tales of their own grandbabies. I think we just have to find other ways to share our love. But that doesn’t take away the sadness of your loss, I know. HUGS

    I am not surprised that you do well with smartphones, just your writing tells me that you are very intelligent, and have enough curiosity about things to figure out how to make them work. I love learning new things but do best hands on rather than reading about it. I tend to get frustrated quickly if I don’t understand. I know you are a blessing to your friends, for many getting a smartphone for the first time is a real challenge. I love mine and you would have to pry it out of my hands to take it away! :-))

    1. As you say, knowing the reason would it make easier. But these things keep us humble.
      I always will remember the first time my husband showed me his first I Phone. He explained to me what he could do with it, and at the end I asked: “How can I make a phone call again😳?” It took me some time, but now I love it.
