Day 36

I dare you to not care about anyone but you.

It is rare that I give myself a chance to just do whatever I want and not pay attention to the people around me. I was not raised to ignore people. But I got home from running errands today and saw my roommates boyfriend on the couch. I had so much to get done this afternoon as it is my only day without work.
Anyway, he was sitting on the couch playing video games. Which annoys me enough as it is but dishes needed to be done, I had to finish laundry, the house needed to be vacuumed, and the dishwasher needed to be unloaded. Most of which are things that he can do. Not my laundry, but everything else could have already been done.
So I decided that I was going to do what I needed to do and be as loud as possible about it. With one load of laundry in the washing machine and one in the dryer, I unloaded the dishwasher, making sure to crash the dishes as much as I could and still be careful. Then ran the water nice and high so that it was loud.
I am so sick of him being here and being on the couch, playing video games. I am sick of being considerate in any way and not getting the slightest reciprocation.  He never asks if he can do anything for me. He never asks if I need the shower before he goes in there.
So, from here on out I am taking back my house. I am doing what I need to do and not caring about other people,  at least not him.

  1. I have a dare for you - confront him about his behavior instead of being passive-aggressive. You KNOW that by not telling him that his behavior bothers you, you're essentially giving him permission to treat you and your home with no respect. It's okay for you to tell him what your expectations are - it's actually more okay and easier than if he was your boyfriend, because it doesn't matter if he gets mad at your or decides he doesn't like you. And - trust me on this - people are THICK. They don't get hints. If he even noticed you banging around (and he probably didn't) he probably didn't have any idea that your anger was directed at sweet, innocent, little him. He probably just thought "Boy, what a noisy b----!" So tell him. Call me and I'll give you a pep talk. XO
