    Need to learn to set boundaries

    I don't mind helping people. In fact, I enjoy it. The problem is when I put other peoples needs ahead of my own. Or when I don't set boundaries. It's O.K. to help others but I need to take care of myself. I have to really work at being assertive and not letting people take...

    Really I am too nice.

    .. This occurred to me earlier when I realised that my colleague had again dropped the ball and did not follow up on something which was due today. I called him asking if he'd done it and he's said "he forgot." I told him to get it done, even though he'd already left the...

    I'm passive aggressive and completely awkward which means everytime I go threw some BS I sort of brush it off without confrontation. This is manifesting into a toxic anger inside me, I feel like my heart is full of hate and anger. I've been getting tons of headaches..troubles...

    I have always been a nice

    and kindhearted person, that goes out of there way to help others in need. I have been taken advantage of in my life for my generosity no doubt, but that does not deter me from being who I truly am and will continue to do random acts of kindness until I pass away :)

    Why Am I Too Nice?

    I have a tendancy to be too nice. I always feel the need to try and help everyone. I dont know why. I have helped many of friends and family with money and just about everything. I have been asking myself why lately. Is it a need of acceptance or what? Wish I knew why I always...

    as "too nice"? If there is then I am probably the epitome of that sentence. I like everyone and I never judge, I take people as I meet them. I genuinely care about all people from all walks of life. I always try my utmost to help the people I meet that cross my path. I just...

    This has been an issue in the past.

    When you're nice and you're in high school, more often than not, people say screw being nice back and use you for money or whatever.

    This can be a problem.

    I'll happily do anything for anybody. Just because there are a lot of people out there who find it really difficult to do simple things. But you can also do things for people who will abuse your good nature.

    I think I often get taken advantage of.

    But then, I'd rather get taken advantage of than to not help out (within reason). If someone takes advantage of me, it's on them not me. I have learned to stand up for myself though. When someone has wronged me, I will tell them... nicely, but I will take care of myself now...

    I think I'm too nice sometimes

    because I friend people I shouldn't. I never think it's fair to judge. I don't give up trying to be a friend usually they ignore me, try to use me, or do something super rude before I give up. I guess I just expect people to be better than what they are.
