I dont like it when people push me into something i dont like... If it comes with a job, i dont mind doing it because i am paid to do it. If you are going to push me to sing karaoke, no wayyyyyyy... I have the gift for music, i had sang for years in a choir, competed even and won but karaoke is something that i dont dig.. not anymore... Am i being a killjoy? Or am i just getting old??? I just felt that my time for karaoke is up and that i have other interests in mind... If i want to sing, you dont have to push me for it. A part of me is saying, "stop it guys, youre treating me like a kid!"

Indeed, and I don't do anything that I am not completely comfortable with. Of course, with that being said, it does not really stop people from making the good honest attempt in trying to push me right into doing something that I am not really comfort with doing. It is frustrating that people don't really understanding the meaning of the word "no". In the end, I'm going to do what I am going to do and they can do what they want to do and we'll all get around wrong. Pushing me just means I'm going to push you back from me and I can push pretty hard if I have the motivation. So don't really try and tempt fate by trying to really getting me to do things. We all have our own interests right out there, and thankfully everyone is not the same.

I know how you feel when you get pushed into something that you do not want to do. My parents are doing the same thing to me. I am living with my parents because of Randy's foot condition which is resulting in him not working and I am staying with him to take care of him (I feel that I am being a good wife by putting my husband's needs ahead of my own) and my mother keeps on telling me that I need to find a full-time job and hire a nurse for Randy. I feel that I should be taking care of him not a stranger. I am also doing an online graduate degree which takes up a lot of my time as well. I am trying to do my own thing as well and it frustrates me when that my mother thinks she can boss me around. The other day I was talking to randy and asking him if I could take a class through the community center on learning how to quilt (we have a rule where we do not spend money without discussing it with the other person) and my mom said, "taking a class in quilting is a waste of money, can't you think of another way to spend your money". I was so angry because I was not speaking to her, I was speaking to my husband. I am married and get money from school and hopefully soon we will get money from SS for Randy since he cannot work so I know we can afford it. I feel that if you do not like Karaoke then you should not do it. People should not push you into something you do not want to do.

Yeah we don't like for anyone to push us into doing things. We have to want to do things ourselves. If you don't want to sing karaoke then don't. There are a lot of people who say no to singing karaoke. We are all entitled to make our own decisions. Our friends should respect us when we do as well.

hello gracee! Oh, at first i thought you are also like those who really don't like singing in videoke. But then turns out you really are a good singer,huh? Well, maybe time has come that you may feel like it's over and I'm done with it! SO you have does kind of reactions like "don't push me into something i don't like" If you really like or love music, time will come you will sing and yes, not all things can be done specially when you don't feel like doing it. But I know, you'll still sing no matter what, even if there's a microphone or not... If you really loved singing, you can feel the urge of singing even just for yourself.

No, I don't think you're being a killjoy. As we get older we often outgrow things we once enjoyed, it's part of the growing experience. And if those around you cannot understand that you no longer enjoy, the problem lays with them not you. I hate when people try to push me into anything, also.
