    Trying to Stop, Though.

    I did it for my parents for a long time, at the cost of my developing identity and self-respect. Now I just do it out of habit, and from the paralyzing fear that someone might (essentially) reject me if I don't. As much as I did it for parents and other authority figures or...

    sometimes - but not usually.  give them what they want and they will always come back.  But then am I really being myself?  I believe there has to be a balance of giving and taking to really get along peacefully in the world.
