I'm Easy! Take Advantage of Me!

I am very easy to get along with. I'm a very easy-going person. I seem to get along well with just about anybody. I cannot stand mean or rude people, but I can get along with them just the same. I try very hard to be fair towards others in all that I do. Even the years that I was in a Supervisory position, I tried to be fair. I gained much respect from my staff for this reason. I did not expect them to do something unless I, myself would do the same thing.

In my personal life this is a real problem. As it is a fault rather than a good quality I have. I have found that certain people take advantage of my good nature and use it to their own good and then I am the one stuck being hurt in the end.

I used to be proud of the fact that I'm so easy to get along with, but I'm not so sure about that, anymore. I realize finally after 50 years, that I just have to be on my guard at all times with people, now. Oh, if only I'd realized that 10 years ago!!!
