I am a doormat

I admit it. I'm a doormat. I let people walk all over me. I don't even mind anymore. I used to get ignored, pushed around, and beat up when I was a kid. I was so lonely. I'd do anything to have friends. so I just tried to please everyone to get them to be my friends. I guess that was better than being alone. I didn't care that they only used me for laughs. I even joined them laughing at myself. So I got a good sense of humor out of it. I would do other kinds homework, chores, dirty work or whatever was asked of me. I never said no. Now as an adult people still walk all over me. They tell me since I have no self respect why should they respect me. They still laugh at me. I don't care. It's better to be a doormat and let people use you than be invisible and have everyone ignore you.

  • That was me before I found true friends. My 6th grade year, I never said no. If somebody asked me if they could copy my homework, classwork, carry books. It was worse for me because I was far too shy to actually approach them. I was new to that school, partially anyway, and didn't know anyone. Then I met Liv (name is changed). She was like me: few friends, sort of shy. Our friendship was awkward at frst: us both used to gettung used by friends, we didn't know what to do. When we needed partners in class, I finally didn't get nervous about asking. We became much better friends, and by 8th grade, we were inseperable. We had no more classes together with the exception of band, and we were getting more friends. I never associated myself with the people who treated me like a doormat. I was never really popular, but I was happy with my new circle of friends. We joked at each other and sure, we had our disagreements, but we were all pretty happy. As for the people who treated me like a doormat, I will no longer let them. I do not care whato their opinion of me is anymore. Liv was the first to stand up for herself, and I followed suit.

    I'm in high school now and am friends with plenty of people I consider true friends. In spite of this, I'm still not a people person. I like isolation, in some ways. Anyway, cliche as it sounds, be yourself. There is only one you. God created you in his image and sent his son Jesus to die so that you will be forgiven. The trick is to remember what an amazing person you are. Try self motivation; stand in the mirror and admire yourself. It sounds stupid and self absorbing, but I do it all the time. For example, depending on your gender, say things like, "I see a beautiful, extraordinary woman," or "I see a sharp, outstanding man." Say the things you want to hear-love yourself!

    I know from personal experience that some things are easier said than done. Find your inner reserve of power. I believe you can do it.

  • How can this mighty troll slayer be a doormat? Maybe she is underestimating her awesome powers.

  • I like pinching boys faces.

  • Does anyone know where to find a bra size 34d within the price range of $5-$7? Thanks in advance.

  • I do trade ins. Send me one of your old bras and I'll sell you a bra your size for only $4.99.

  • My old bras look horrible cause i could never find the right size. You don't want those.

  • I think i was born a trouble maker, i would say things and do things that would cause little bursts of trouble for other people and myself. not really proud of that aspect of myself because it would be fun while doing it but in the long run it would cause me all types of trouble making me wonder why the h*** i did it in the first place. but it seems i only start doing things like that when im tired of being near people (introvert) so when i start acting like that i stay away for a couple of months or just end things until the other person contacts me. i think you being a doormat is like me being a troublemaker a defense mechanism that we do to protect ourselves. you should find out what your trying to protect from and then avoid it and if you find out that its other people well then avoid them, i found that life has been much more bearable since i stopped hanging out with others.

  • If it makes you feel better about yourself and gives you something to fill up your meaningless day go right ahead & keep comment bombing MY confession.

  • Hey you, do my homework for me.

  • Cats have nine live,you have to kill kitty nine times.

  • I think everyone has been a doormat at least once in their life and i must say that america is full of nothing but doormats who believe they are something else. so truthfully you are one among millions and possibly the only one who is able to admit to themselves.
