Adulthood Plus Feelings

I *should* be a sensible adult about this.

I get so tired of being the bigger person. All of my life I took those lessons about putting others first and "to have a friend be one" very seriously. I was taught that if you were generous and kind and pleasant, what goes around comes around.

Not necessarily. Many people will be happy to take and take and take some more, assuming that you won't mind. And they never seem to realise I might like a little recognition or at least appreciation, because after all, if I live like that, I don't mind. Right?

I mind. But this is who I have become, and I cannot betray who I am.
