Everyone who knows me, knows I’m not a morning person. I move slower, I’m very quiet and usually irritable, my mind just doesn’t work. It’s like my brain is in a dense fog of *yawn* what was I talking about just now? Get the picture?
It’s funny because I know I’m not the only person in the world who is like this…and yet people who ARE morning people or who are “all day long” people (*rolling eyes*) are really quick to judge me for not being a morning person. In their self-righteous little universe, they rush to give me what I call the “psycho treatment”. This behavior basically consists of walking up to me slowly wide-eyed with an analytical expression as if to say “Is it safe psycho? It’s 9am and I’m going to say hi to you at my own risk” Meanwhile I’m looking that the person like “don’t do it…don’t do it…just go away.” Of course after they receive the cold “morning” from me (because I never say “GOOD morning”…hello? I’m not a morning person, so there’s nothing GOOD about my mornings, I stick to honesty and just say “morning”) they walk away…still wide eyed as if they got smacked in a sensitive sinus area on the forehead, this time not with an analytical expression but with an expression of confirmation, “yea this girl is evil.”
My question to you is: why does that make me evil?
My mom is a morning person. I could be taking a shower in the morning and be in total “morning misery” and she can walk in the bathroom humming and whistling. She’ll tell me about the dreams she had the night before, she’ll talk about what she plans on doing throughout the day, she’ll vent to me about something. I’ll just be in the shower with my eyes closed scrubbing. Dead air. LOL Don’t get me wrong, I listen to her, but my brain can’t process what she’s saying very well therefore I will provide little feedback. An “mm” here and there, an attempt at a chuckle. She knows. She doesn’t even try to gauge a reaction nor does she judge me for it or take it personally. In the late afternoon, the roles are reversed and I have some energy and my mom’s is dying down.
And that’s okay…
That’s the point: we are all different. If God was boring, he would have made us all one color, one personality, one way of thinking. But no, he made us all different, so why hate? Why judge? Why jump to the conclusion that just because I am not a morning person, that I’m some repressed evil savage? Just because I get moody or PMS doesn’t make me a monster. I can get monstrous while experiencing these things, but I’m not a monster. People make things seem like you can’t have emotions or can’t have a time of day that you absolutely detest. You can’t have hormones or PMS apparently either…but we will get into that subject another day. LOL My mother and I know the times of the day we function the best and the least, we manage to get along and live with it. So with a little understanding, we can all do it. Anyway, I needed to vent about that. Thanks for “listening”. If you comment something about me needing to be a morning person, be ready to have your comment deleted. LOL
