    Generally I am a really nice considerate person.

    I do things for people because i want to help and love to see the smiles on their faces. I offer people things when I know they are lacking of something. And it really sucks, that after, people aren't considerate towards me. I'm not looking for a reward you know.. its hard to...

    Granted

    I think people might be taking me for granted. They are thinking that I will always be doing that, or always be doing this. And it got me thinking, what if I died in that car accident? Then what would people be doing without me.

    For Some It Becomes a Way of Life

    If you have it done to you for a long time, it just becomes second nature to expect it from those that you know are doing you wrong.

    When people expect me to drop everything

    and do what they want. Then the worse part is if I do help them, then ask for help myself they tell me no or the majority of the time just laugh.

    I hate when my generousity is taken for a weakness, and it's even worse when people just assume that I'm going to do something for them.

    for granted. Just because I'm nice doesn't mean I'm weak. Why is it that I have to disappear for any of them to realize I mattered. It's not only my friends anymore it's also my family. I'm always there for all of them and try my best to always help when I can. Is it too much to...
