What do you do?

Okay so…. In my every day life I struggle between giving people the double middle fingers Stone Cold Steve Austin style and being a total push over.

It’s hard. On one hand, I can’t begin to tell you how annoying it is to deal with people that are obviously using me. But it is even harder when you know that person is a family member.  It’s hurtful that a person that claims to love you can treat you like their personal butler with no regards for you. Like literally nothing you are doing means anything when they need something. You just have to drop what you have going on to do their bidding.

I know that if this person wasn’t a family member they would get the Stone Cold treatment but they are. So what do I do? This is a work in progress.

  1. Unless what they need is life-threatening, help them. But don’t drop everything to do it. Let that person know you’ll get to it when YOUR schedule permits. And that might not be today. Also I have no qualms about educating someone who so obviously needs it. After you’ve done whatever deed, look ’em dead in the eye and make them say Thank You. Just like you teach your kids to. It won’t mean much when you tell them to say it, but MAYBE one day, he/she will say it without prompting and whatever favor you did will be completely worth the me-time you sacrificed to do it.
