    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!

    Well it seems as I have been pondering this for the last few hours I have been growing increasingly concerned because I feel as though I have to fix this problem before it gets too out of hand. It has occurred to me that maybe somewhere deep down I'm fueled by bitterness...When...

    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...

    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...

    I hate this habit, but I'll do it to avoid

    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.

    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...

    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...

    It happens because I hate being mean

    and I don't like conflict. That's why it's hard being ambitious and being afraid of stepping on people's toes.

    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...

    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...

    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...
