Two things I've noticed...

1. Over the years, some guys seem to think that because I took care of my disabled dad that might mean I can and/or want to take care of Them. Why would they think that? Why do they Not think that maybe some responsibility off of Me would be a good thing? Why would they want to add More? I'm caring, compassionate, loyal, empathetic, and a lot more... but, wtf....or, Why TF... does any of that equate to them thinking I want to take on more? (along with my having two kids (adults now), with one of them who has mental health matters. etc etc etc of life and my sons.)

2. Why degrade my career? I've done blue and white-collar work. Where I am now is kinda in the middle, but mostly "white collar." Why do people who do not truly understand a person's job/career attempt to bother to degrade it? I've dealt with just that part since September 2019, twice, by two different men.

(I'm leaving this as is though I know it's not complete.)

Thank you for taking care of your dad and your children. I know it took a lot of labored love to do what you did. Now it's your time to be you. The heck with what others may think. Concentrate on you and your desires!... Love your children, love your work, but mainly love yourself. The hardest word I ever learned to say was "No" Unless you want to do something, just say no. No explanation, just no! Good luck!

I know what you mean I've had several men in my past say the same thing to me and in no way would I ever want that. 13 years is long enough.
They are playing with thank u to say please. Its envy and the desire to know ..feel your success but vicariously. They are failing though and you are succeeding...

They wanna have you to get their needs met. Talk hides everything sometimes.
