    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.

    Look Out For You

    I like to help people.  I find it hard to say no to most things.  This is especially true with good friends and people i look up to.  I help them out in the hopes that it will make me feel good and that maybe that i might be helped someday in return when i really...

    With a Passion!

    I can't stand it when someone takes me for granted.  Sometimes I take people for granted. I try not to but it's kinda something that just happens with time. It sucks. Especially when someone takes me for granted because I have had self esteem issues for most of my life...

    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'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...

    Taken For Granted

    I hate the way in all my worlds in life people just take me for granted, its not very often people actually appreciate what I do for them. I dont need a lot from anyone but just to be acknowledge sometimes, can make the world of difference. Maybe I am just to giving and that is...

    I married my husband five years ago today.

    He spent the day with his brothers and wanted me to make him a snack when he got home. No flowers, no card, no kiss. He offered to take me to the pizza place up the street. I should be trilled, but after five years of marriage and close to ten of dating, don't I deserve a little...

    The Doormat

    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...

    I paid for my fiancé to go to college.

    I worked two jobs, cooked every meal and ran the house so she could study. Her libido disappeared and soon wouldn't touch me at all. After 8 months of this I also discovered that whilst I paid rent and bills, working two jobs to do so, she had been collecting an allowance from...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
