Sometimes there are people who are too interested in being a part of someone elses life. They don't hurt anyone physically; but can injure them in other ways. They think that overt ingratiating behaviour will some how make them the stalked person's best friend or become someone they admire. They seem to want to hang out with their 'hero'. It works for a time but then the object of their attention can become annoyed and irritated.
I think that probably the best way of handling something like this is to not let it creep you out. If you are the recipient, it is important to just be yourself and use commonsense. It would probably be a good thing to just ask the person to leave you alone. Make it abundantly clear that they are embarrassing to the object of their admiration. That, although it is flattering, you would appreciate it if they did not continually ask for your attention and company. Make it clear that you, wish to make your own mind up as to who you want to be in company with on week days and your weekends in particular.
Do a little research and find a place for the person to go in their spare time to make new friends. People who would enjoy their attention. Whether you are a Christian or not, society does not behoove you to be a person that is there to take care of everyone on the planet. If you can't take on a project there is probably a very good reason for that. God gives us talents. Each of us has their own God given things to pursue. It is between the Lord and myself, for instance, just what my purpose or mission in life is and each of us must come to it in thoughtful prayer. I must be able to set boundaries. But I must be careful the other person does not feel like an 'untouchable'.
Sometimes life is like a social mine field folks....so be careful out there!
The Wee Few Thoughts of Dylan the Dog
It really amazes a little doggie like me the things that Ruth comes up with to write about. Her head must be a very treacherous place to go. She has been around a great many different types of other people. She wants to see a happy world out their for everyone including doggies. I guess a being can only do the best they can.
Note: The kitty on glass photo is from Cats on Glass and Dylan of course, was taken by Alec Bruyns.
Just wanted to Welcome all of you to my blog. Hope you enjoy my sometimes whimsical thoughts and pictures of fantasy. You will find that I often comment quite strongly on what is going on in both the world at large and my inner world. I do not apologize for this. I sure hope that you will visit often and leave comments about my articles. Thank you and again Welcome!
I am a mother of three, grandmother of three, and a full-time Writer in Ontario, Canada. My mission is to enable others to make a nice income while enjoying their work; as well as
doing the same for myself. I have written poetry and short stories since childhood and some have been published. I enjoy writing articles, copy and other online projects. Prior
to moving to the United States, I was a social worker and sociologist for over 20 years in Canada.
I am now back in Canada, completely downsized; residing in a room with kitchen privileges. The downsizing occurred ultimately as a result of the death of some loved ones and bad planning. Thanks to God for long friendships and loving, caring, friends!
I live here with my precious Pomeranian, Dylan; near Toronto. At least I don't have very much housecleaning! :)
He asked me this morning If I had seen his specks, I said well Love, You had them last by heck, Did you leave them on the bureau In the bedroom my Dear? No I didn't my Darling, Nor the study I fear. Well are they in the living room then my Pet? No I don't believe so Sweetheart, Are we going bonkers yet? So I turned around and faced him, and laughed with great glee, They are right on your face Love, Exactly where they should be!

There are moments in life when you wish you could bring someone from Heaven...and spend the day with them just one more time, give them one more hug, kiss them goodbye or hear their voice again. One more chance to say I Love you. In remembrance of our loved ones who are not here..gone but not forgotten!
Before I give someone a piece of my mind, I had better make sure I can get by with what is left that day. Better that I walk away and find my better self so I don't say something mean or something I will be sorry for week later. ~Author Unknown
You know what is nice is being able to spell like a Canadian again; like 'behaviour' not 'behavior'. Being back in Canada feels good. Does anyone know where I can get a British spell check for free?
Now Where Is That Computer?
The little kitty is crying for good reason. No one leaves comments. It would definitely be really nice as you breeze through my blog content; if you could please read my last posting and leave a comment before you go.
I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.
