    I'M Not A Little Girl Anymore!

    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 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.

    So Sick

    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...

    Many People Take Me For Granted

    My kids (the younger ones) take for granted that Mom is always going to be there for them.  Of course they are young, and consider me to be superhuman and immortal.  My husband takes me for granted.  He is very spoiled.  He tends to balk like a child when...

    Why Do People Do This?

    I mean...Yes I try to be there, yes I try do what I can to help. I do like helping people but...That doesn't mean that I deserve to yelled at because I can't help because I'm dealing with my own problems. Yes I know, the people, most of them, that I help would get offended...

    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.

    I'm constantly being taken

    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...

    It'S A Crying Shame

    It is a crying shame that people think that they can take me for granted. Just because I wear my heart on my sleeve, I am a genetic female, and that I will give you the shirt off my back, doesn't mean you can take me for granted. I may help you 99 times out of 100, there is going...

    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.
