Encouraged or discouraged.

Sunday, July 17, 2011

I have not been on Spark People for a while. I have been very discouraged. My son ended up staying in my camper last summer when he had a nervous breakdown bipolar psychotic episode. Then my father in law did not have anywhere to live and so he is living in it now. Ben just let him take it .So I will not get to use that camper. It seems like every time I turn around someone is taking something from me. I am a generous person (I think) but I feel taken advantage of. When will it be my turn to get what I want.

    You have a huge heart and you have been doing for people so long without saying no they take advantage of you because they know you won't say no or do anything to stop them. You feel if you say no, no one will come to you and they will hate you. Take care of yourself, my son is also in trouble and without going into detail I took a month off from work to gather myself (FMLA).I put myself first after 21years and put my son in God's hand, I feel more relieved and I know I have done all I can.He is not sick or in the streets. I stop letting people call the shots for me and took over my own feelings. Once you do that you will not feel guilty about saying no.

    When you stop ALLOWING people to take advantage of you....... everything you are doing is nice and wonderful, but when you give in so easily, to take away other peoples choices, that they NEED to make. They end up resenting you for it. People need to make their own choices, you did by Allowing people to USE you, then you get upset because they did. Do you see the endless circle??

    Wish you all the best, sounds like you have a full plate, but learn to take care of YOU!
