It's Exhausting!

Realistically, I know that I can't please my whole family.  No matter what decision I make, I always seem to **** someone off!  Since I know that pleasing them all is impossible, why do I feel so frustrated and helpless when someone is upset?  It makes me want to sit down and cry sometimes.

Gave up trying to please everyone years ago. Finally realised it was an impossible task. Not easy to give up though, when some of them are still living with you. <br />

I've watched one of my sisters slowly go into meltdown (over a period of years) trying to do the same for her kids.
