I Hate Being Treated Like a Doormat

    Nobody Deserves It

    Not only that, but if they do "deserve it" then who is to decide that in the first place? I just wish whatever gene in humans causes them to see themselves as superior to everyone else could be eradicated.

    It Knows No End

    I feel like I'm treated like a maid. Just because I'm the youngest doesn't mean I'm the only one who has to do everything. Before my sister's best friend moved in, I was the only one cleaning day after day. From dishes to vacuuming and dusting. I'd spend hours cleaning up the...

    I am a nice person. Always have been

    and always will be. Dumbledore said it best, "You are unfailingly kind: a trait people never fail to undervalue, I'm afraid." Everyone tells me i'm far to kind and that it hurts me. But you see everyone seems to believe that to get anything done you have to be mean and I would...

    I'm Fighting It

    I always seem to get myself into these situations where people step all over me.  I'm sure that I manifest them although, I'm not sure how. My family has done it for years, and so called friends love to take advantage of my kindness and inability to say no.  It took...

    But I Was Trained to Let It Happen

    A control-freak abusive dad and a people-pleaser mom will do that. Now I'm having to reverse all the wrong thinking I learned when I was a little girl. In the meantime, all those type-A personalities out there seem to gravitate toward me. They must sense I'm a pushover, like...

    I Have A Serious Problem With Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.

    At the beginning of the Rudolph story I could completely identify with him. He was an outcast, unloved, unwanted, ostracized by peers who judged him only on his appearance. He just wants to be accepted, but more than anything he is defined by his status as not-accepted. Then he...

    Don't Abuse It.

    Friendship is a privilege. If you abuse it then there are consequences to your actions. Ruining a friendship can never be worth the gain you wanted. Always treate others like you want to be treated.
