TaLkIn TuEsDaY

So I wanted to go off on annoying, opinionated people. People who are always giving you unneeded and un-solicited advice. People that think they know it all and are always trying to tell you that they do. Sorry if I am being a hypocrite right now because I know that at some point in my life I have been one or all of these things. Ok so things like....you should put socks on your baby, I like your hair better darker, you should grow your hair out, you shouldn't drive so fast, you talk to much, you shouldn't wear so much make-up, you shouldn't eat that, your baby should be on a schedule, your kid should go to bed at a regular time.......blah blah blah blah. These are just a few of the things I have heard through out my life as a teenager, wife, mother, daughter, friend, sister, and acquaintance. I think I have about heard it all. I am so sick of it. I am not perfect; person, wife mom etc. I am not a great cook, my house isn't always clean, I don't know how to sew, I don't have food storage, I can't dance or sing, my son isn't always in bed on time or sometimes even before 10:00 but you know what it's ok, it's my life and it works for me. People should know not to give advice unless it is asked for and keep your opinion to your self unless you are asked to give one. I don't know everything I am learning as I go just like everyone else. I get so sick of how "they" say this is what your child should be doing right now and you shouldn't let your child do that or they will grow up to be a serial killer and this is how your marriage should be. Who are "they" anyway??? All I know in the short years I have been alive that I do not know everything and just when I thought I knew something I find out something new or there are other tricks or ways to doing everything. I think we all just do the best we can when we can and that's all you can ask for. So those that freely give out there opinions and advice on how things "should" be maybe take a step back and realize what might work for you may not work for someone else. Also there is a reason why it is called an "opinion" it 's because it is not a fact or anything proven to be so. So next time when people feel like handing those out too maybe they should make sure that is wanted in the first place. Now I do realize that this was a bold statement but again also an opinion. On a lighter note I am glad at the point were I am at in my life and thanks to all my friends and family who have loved and supported me along the way. Also most importantly for not judging me. So thanks for all your dang opinions! lol Thanks again for listening to another crazy rendition of Amy's talkin Tuesday!!
