I let my boyfriend take advantage of my

I let my boyfriend take advantage of my generosity. Everyone noticed it way before me, and I only realized because my father told me. I feel weak and I've come to realize that everyone, other than my family, only act like they like me because they know I'm a push over. I don't know what to do.

  • ^ I like that! Good analogy!

  • It is a nobel thing to be selfless and giving, but even the most nobel and most selfless do not willingly play the martyr for no good reason. Here is a joke that makes the point: (It's a physical joke so use your imagination as if I am there telling it to you- my dad did this to me when I was about 9)

    I was (my dad said) at a bus stop waiting for the bus to arrive. A little dog comes up to me and acts as if it will pee on my leg because the dog raised its leg to pee. I give the dog a little kick to shoo him away. (This is when I kick your shin lightly as if imitating my kicking the dog away.) I then tell you the dog comes back and does the same thing so I kick the dog again (kicking you in the shin again).

    My dad kicked me about 4 times before I finally said 'ow, dad stop kicking me.' The moral of the story is when you know and it isn't funny anymore it is time to say stop and if he doesn't walk away.

    Good luck and God Bless

  • I did that too!! and our relationship turned really bad!! it only continued! I told myself it would get better, but it didn't and soon I was digging my own grave. I tried to tell him, and he yelled at me, over and over and called ME selfish and told me I was sUPOSSED to make tons of scarifices for him. So I let him go. talk to your bf first.

  • Give a dog a laxative and lock him in your boyfriends room.

  • Well, to start, try sticking up for ypurself! If you recognize the problem, then you have a real chance of fixing it. I have also been taken advantage of, and it does not feel good. So, to better myself, I adopted the "I don't give a f***" and "not my problem" attitude. Most of the people who were taking advantage of me before are now gone, but I feel much better being able to worry my own problems, and trust me, I have plenty to worry about!
