I Hate Being Taken For Granted

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,000 People

    I read something along the lines of,

    "I am not important to anyone. I merely exist in peoples' lives." That is exactly how I feel. I am always on the bottom of the list, no matter what. I fear that I never will be of any value to anyone.

    My best friend always hangs out in my house.

    He even brought a girl & make a ****** mess in my bed. He always successfully convinces me to use my house for all the studies we do. He can easily persuade me to allow him use my house to everything he wants. All of that is possible because I never said no. But he crossed the...

    I Hate When My Generousity ...

    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.

    My mom thinks I'm a little stupid child. Two years ago I was at my aunts house downloading songs into my iPod and my brother noticed that I was getting a song by Nirvana called "Rape Me'', and my brother told my mom and asked me if I knew what that meant. I did, so she asked me...

    I usually quietly give my help, affection, and services. I do not see the point in constantly reminding people that I am giving. They should know since they get so much from me, right? No. No. and NO! One girl whose vomit I have clean, to whom I have given my bed and slept on the...

    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.

    I seriously can't take it anymore. It's ridiculous, why do people think they can walk all over me? What is it about me in particular that leads people to believe they can take me for granted? Sometimes I honestly wish I wasn't so giving/caring. I'm not trying to act like I'm...

    When someone really loves you,

    there shouldn't be any confusion or uncertainty. You shouldn't be wondering at 3 o'clock in the morning whether or not they love you. You shouldn't have to play ***-for-tat in order for them to do something appreciative for you. You shouldn't have to continue to give everything...
