Too… I hate that adverb. It’s used to describe things and it’s usually not a good description.
“You’re too loud.”
“You’re too needy.”
“You’re too emotional.”
“You’re Too Much.”
I don’t want to be labeled as being “too much”, but I am. I am too much for people to handle, too much for people to love, and too much for people to want to be with. It’s a problem and I don’t know how to fix it.
And it’s not just in relationships. It’s in work, too. I was told that I was too focused and too fired up. I’m sorry, shouldn’t I be focused and fired up about my goals!? Isn’t that what got me where I am?? I always thought it was a good thing to take work and what not seriously, but apparently I was wrong.
So, how do I not be “too” much? How do I live my life that doesn’t annoy those around me?
These are the questions that keep me up at night… and I don’t have the answers…
