Doing things you hate because everyone else likes it.

Answered 2 years ago

We are packing up to go camping for a week and I could just about cry because I hate it so much. But hubby and kids are so excited so I just suck it up and go along with it. What do you endure to keep everyone else happy?

Have an answer?

Yeah I study from home so I can do a stay at home job, but I still need to take the kids places. I think I have developed agoraphobia after the kids were born. I force myself to drive the kids to school and after school activities, I don’t want them missing out

School pick ups and drop offs. Takes so much time out of my day. And a toddler that doesn't appreciate being in the car for long doesn't make it any better.
I hate it so much I'm seriously considering home schooling my kids. But for now they're loving school and doing well so I'm sucking it up.

It was really bad after my fourth I wanted to scream but that only seems to be acceptable when you're in labour 😂

REPLY

My second was so bad I wanted to die there and then. Screaming was the only thing I could do. I hate how everyone says ‘it wasn’t that bad’ like we all feel the same pain. Some get lucky, some don’t but everything is acceptable in labour as far as I’m concerned.

I don't really hate hate stuff. Like I hate waiting, so if the kids want to go to skate park or pools I can drop them off as they're old enough and come back later. I don't have to wait around supervising.
I don't love love camping or fishing etc but I love spending time with my family, so I get excited when we're camping because I know it's making great memories with my kids

I love my family Christmas. Hate going to the in laws. This year we are doing Christmas at our place, I want a year where my kids actually get to stay in their own home for Christmas and play with their toys. My family is onboard, the inlaws don’t like the idea but if they don’t turn up than they won’t see us for Christmas.

I hate football, but my kids play it and love it so I watch a game with them and I go to all their games, screaming encouragement from the sideline. I don’t have the competitiveness in me that’s needed to be a “football mum”, so when the other team needs some encouragement or is playing really well I yell for them too😂😂😂😂😂
