    People Walk All Over Me

    I always do whatever my friends want because I am scared they won't want to be my friends otherwise. A lot of the time I end up doing things I really don't want to do just to make them happy. They take advantage of it too and make me do things like write their notes for them in...

    Go With The Flow...

    I let people walk all over me because I'd prefer to just go with the flow. I usually believe it would be much easier this way, but sometimes it just doesn't turn out this way. I feel like crap. I can't stand up for myself. I never have and it's hard to believe I ever will. My bf...

    I Let People Walk All Over Me

    I'm 26 years old, but ever since I was a kid, I have always let people walk all over me..all throughout school, relationships, and even work. I'm actually a pretty big guy, at 1st, people are usually intimidated by me, but once they find out how nice I am, it just all goes down...

    Understanding

    Walk All Over Me

    A few days ago, my husband & I were actually having this conversation, why do I let people step all over me?  He said I need to stop this behaviour and stand up for my rights cause I am a person and no one needs treating me like ****.  It hurts him when people do...

    Doormat

    It is ofcourse my own fault. I let people take advantage of my kindness. Even after it happens, and its usually done discreetly, I play the fool and pretend it never happened. Then it happens again. I suppose I could say that these people really arn't my friends... But there is...

    Learn

    All my life I have let people walk all over me, but I am learning as I get older. I just hope I really do remember to learn from all of my mistakes which led people to walk over me. Learn from mistakes!

    I Used To. Some People May Argue I Still Do...

    I'm one of those people who tend to be easy to get along with even though I'm a bit weird. The problem with me though is that when I make friends with someone I always want to help them and they tend to take it for granted. I've recently broke away from a group of friends because...

    The Doormat Friend.

    I have always let people walk all over me. I always do whatever someone asks, even if they never do what I ask. Even if they intentionally hurt me, I'll stay with them. I'm always a doormat. And it's like I don't know what the word 'no' means. I guess I do it because I don't...

    They Will Eventually Pay

    Every time I let someone walk all over me, I add them to list. You see, I'm a very big believer in Karma, and I know that my time will come. And when it does, I will take full advantage of it.

    Walk All Over

    I did make people step and walk all over me.  I say; you take it in once, twice, three times, one hundred million times, then its time to wake up.  Why do I let people walk all over me?  Are they any better then I?  Nope.  Are they any more special then I?  Nope.  IF...

    Easier Than Standing Up For Myself

    i think that letting people get what they want from me is easier than sticking up for myself, cos most of the time if i try sticking up for myself they find it rather amusing, so instead of trying to stick up for myself and being laughed at, i can just endure what they want me to...

    My "friends"

    Okay, let me set the scene. I was in 6th grade, went to a school in a bad part of town. My so-called-friends decided it was a good idea to tell someone I liked them. I was a little shocked, but I forgave them. Well, for this next one, I'm gonna have to tell you that I have bad...
