“So, I feel like no one in my family appreciates me. I know I get lazy from time to time, but they always use it against me. It’s a pain because I always want to try my best, but how can I when everyone is so doubtful of me?”
First of all, so sorry for the late post. I’ve been busy, being bored to be honest! 😛
So, back on the topic, maybe your family is upset about something you did or said, probably the laziness that you’re talking about.
I remember when my mom used to get on my back about how ‘unproductive and not social’ I was being and when I got ENOUGH of that I started participating in competitions, extra-curriculars, getting trophies and medals and that’s how my family is pleased with me.
You want them to appreciate you, you need to do something new, creative, unique and totally useful for your family to stop taunting you about being lazy. A way to show them that you’re NOT lazy is by helping them in doing some stuff like helping your mom with some grocery stuff, helping siblings with homework etc; I know the other one is more harder than blowing a bubble with raisins (impossible right? XD well, at least that’s how I feel about this situation 😛 ) but what choice?
The other situation, yes yet another, maybe, you’re already into a lot of sports, activities and still your family isn’t pleased, then its a lot harder to handle. Basically, what I do in problems like this is shout the heads out of my siblings but please don’t go for that, you don’t want more trouble, do you? (I know you won’t, just messing 😉 )
If that happened or happens, then just ask them casually, a-good-daughter-type person. “You guys are being very disappointed with me, what is the reason and what should I do to get your attitude normal with me again?”. If its you, just tell them sorry for that and promise (and carry it out as well 😛 ) to never repeat it.
And if you want that promise to not be broken, get rid of the evil thing laziness! Which is a bit hard to get rid of but here are some tips to get going active:
1. Exercise. Just get FED UP of laziness and GIVE a run for it!
2. Allow yourself to get relaxed and do things you enjoy, that basically goes in the direction of laziness but in your spare time do some odd yet creative jobs.
3. Get some sleep, I said some, to get over your laziness and be fresh, this works more often.
Now that you’ve lost your laziness, you can do that ‘try my best’ part more productively and keep your family pleased!!
Hope this advice helped, post your advice here as well!! 😉
