    Whenever I Can

    I enjoy helping others. If there is something I can do at whatever cost to myself I have always done it. I have recently been trying to remedy this situation focusing more on myself. In my head I consider this to be selfish but others keep telling me that its not. So although I...

    I have a big problem saying the word no.  And most of the people around me won't take no for an answer.  So it seems like most of the time I'm coersed into saying yes anyway.  I think I have difficulty saying no because I want to seem like a friendly and helpful...

    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...

    I Try To Give People What They Want

    I try to give people what they want  except if it is something I can't afford.   I also sell items people order.  They usually order what they want.

    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.

    I never said I'm good. I never thought I'm best. I don't think I'm better. But I'm real, talk straight and give reflection to what I receive. Learn to deal with it or leave.
