I was called a Selfish Brat yesterday by my counselor......
I have been going through some extreme changes which has started from my weight loss.
I chopped and colored my hair pink, I have a much edgier style, and am seperating myself from the church I've been with all my life.
The reason she called me a brat, was because my husband and I had planned on getting our first tattoos together. Well, he is deployed, and I discussed my getting one now, in an area that won't be effected by sagging. He seemed slightly hurt I wasn't waiting, but was okay with it.
THAT's why I'm a brat. Because I am only thinking about myself and not him. We had planned something special, and because I can't wait (and when asked why I was doing it, I said "because I want to, and my friends want to" - it was thrown in my face).
She thinks my husband wouldn't deny me anything, but is really hurt I'm not waiting for him.
So, I brought this up with my husband this evening, and he said he really doesn't mind. That I shouldn't internalize this too much, and don't worry about other people.
I just never thought of myself as being a spoiled brat before. Am I focusing on "ME" too much?
I never focus on me, and with no one else around, that's what I have to focus on.
So, I was wondering how many of you have become self-absorbed in your new transformation? Any situations you can share?
