{Everyday In May} - Things That Make You Uncomfortable

I saw this on many of the blogs I followed...At first, I thought, how cool, but I could never do it. Now, 3 days later...I want to try.
Today I join....Things that make you uncomfortable.

While in all of these pictures, I look quite comfortable, it is a mask that is put on by my love of children. Living in Haiti has been one of the most uncomfortable things I have every done...the main reason POVERTY....I never escape it here. It's always around, and the weight of people suffering is always here. I thought, that two years into this, I would be use to it...but I'm by honest, what makes me the most uncomfortable is the amount of wealth I have in the poverty.
It is so hard for me. I'm so not a sensitive person. It is so hard for me when I am put in situations where people are very sensitive...I'm not good at it. I always end up putting my foot in my mouth... I'm trying to learn..
Telling People No
I know this may sound contradictory to the last statement, but it is so hard for me to tell people no...I want to make them happy...I like to serve people...I like to do is so hard for me to tell them no. This has gotten me into trouble in the past and I have over committed myself and in turn let people down.
What makes you uncomfortable?

I'm amazed at you!! I love this post. Who is comfortable with poverty? I struggled greatly with it when I went to Haiti as well. First when I was 17 and had NO idea about third world countries and the second time when I was 20... It's never easy to see. Thank you for posting!!
