I'm sorry...Does it say WELCOME across my back??

Well HELLO, I'm not a doormat!

I really do have to stop being so darned accommodating!

I'm all about the do unto others, but sometimes - just sometime I really just want to scream ENOUGH!

I'll do anything for anyone, just because.

Why is it that some people just take, take, take, take, take?  They delight in it and then they just mow over the top of you as if you're not even there?

They think they're above it all...entitled.

I try
I get that it's about giving and not receiving - but at some point, I get tired.  I get tired because I always try to do the right thing.  Whether I want to or not, for whatever reason.  Maybe it's to keep the peace, not make waves for someone else or just keep things nice.  I try to do what's right.  So why is it that I get fed the biggest pile of crapola?

Oh, believe me - I'm not thin skinned or too meek to open my mouth.  I just shouldn't have to.

Has anyone EVER gotten the impression that I'm afraid to say what's on my mind???  Yeah - didn't think so.

I know that Biblically speaking - we're supposed to keep forgiving & keep turning the other cheek - but darn it, my cheeks are sore!  All of em!

When is enough enough?

It's not my actual friends that take advantage of me.  It's more the "outsiders".  The ones I don't particularly want to be around (go figure) that I need to deal with at one time or another that take the most advantage.

I've never been some desperate and needy soul that feels they need to lay down all that they are to have people like me.  Sure, I like to be liked - who doesn't?  But my radar is  pretty darn good.  I love everyone - until you give me a good reason not to.  Then I'll just deal with you when I need to.  I'm not good at being a fake or a phoney.  I'll do what I have to do, when I need to - but I'm not inviting you for coffee either.
Even "new" people.  Some people just see their little opening & crawl right in & make themselves at home. Um - no, I don't think so.

You see, unlike many of the people around me - I have an extremely high tolerance level.  You may annoy me, you may piss me off - but I will just smile through & take a mental note.

Never ever mistake my kindness and tolerance for weakness.  I'm stronger than you'll ever know.

So, yes.  I will tolerate the nonsense to keep the party going, but you may not be on the next guest list.

Be kind.  Don't take advantage of the people who are kind to you.

Do unto others as you'd have done to you.

It's just the right thing to do!

Thank you for reading my blog!
