people pleaserSo I’m a people pleaser.  Do you know the type?  I’m a Libra AND an INFP…yeah, it’s that bad.  I will sacrifice my self respect and dignity if it means making someone else happy.  I’ll be unfathomably uncomfortable as long as it ensures someone else gets to be comfortable, even if I can’t stand that someone else.  I have to tell you, it’s exhausting…and I hate myself a little more each time I avoid the discomfort of confrontation in order to maintain peace.

It’s great to be civil and think of others first.  But at some point you have to say “enough is enough” or “that bitch can’t treat me that way.”  I mean, boundaries are healthy, right?

Just once, I’d like to be the asshole.

Now I’m not suggesting giving in to my every whim would be a good idea.  I can’t just walk up to people I don’t like and kick them right in the vagina, because I hear that would be rude or whatever.  But I can define my limit, and it’s okay for me to expect that I’m treated with the dignity and respect that I deserve.

I am not a doormat.  I am a good person, dammit.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a voodoo doll to assemble.

  1. Lots of people deserve to be kicked in the vagina… 😉
    Great to see a post from you Lisa, I miss your rants!


  2. Whoa! Don’t go Donald Trump on me! Just kidding😬. Good for you!


  3. Lisa, you should just learn from the crazy neighbors (that’s us) you just gotta say what you gotta say sometimes! Matter of fact later today I will probably be screaming at the neighbor next door to me and across from you, cuz you know its nice out and the kids will be outside and she don’t like that lol


    • That’s funny. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve thought “I need to be more like my favorite neighbors” (that’s you guys) I’d be rich by now. Of course, if I had a nickel for every time I’ve backed down from asserting myself, I could own Donald Trump by now. (I hear he’s rich or something.) You guys need to host a boot camp for sissies…I’d pay for that. Good luck with the warm weather drama, and thanks for commenting!
