Being Stuck In The Middle
Being stuck in the middle of a sticky situation is so difficult because we don't want to hurt the other person's feelings. Everyone most likely has went through it at some point of their lives and never knew how to get out. Some people are just people pleasers to begin with instead of having some sort of selfish tendencies to benefit themselves. So what do we do when we get caught up, well we let the other parties handle it.
This happens a lot with love triangles because sometimes we can fall hard for two people at once. There are certain qualities that the other people have that sometimes is not in each other so therefore the person in the middle strings both of them along for the ride. They don't realize that they are sometimes the cause of putting themselves in the middle because they are not being honest with themselves in the first place. Knowing what you want is the first step in any situation so in order to not be in the middle, you have to be in the beginning. I know it's very hard to do but something's gotta give.
Sometimes we also get up in the middle because we could be mediators for our friends or family. You could be the type that is passive or a peacemaker so then people call on you to try to work things out with each other. The problem with that is if it doesn't work out then it still falls back on you. Now you just want to throw your hands in the air because you are so through. Sometimes it's best to let others be so you can get yourself together. They might call you selfish but sometimes we have to be especially if we want guidance in the future when we run into another problem.
So this 4th of July weekend let's all not always get stuck in the middle and just live!
