There are times when life throws unexpected obstacles in our way. Everything would be going great, things would be working out and then, boom! And things start falling apart. In such moments, before you put the blame on someone, it is important to step back and think "What did I do wrong?" Sometimes, you will realize that you did not do as good a job as you could; but sometimes, you will know that you did everything you could and the only mistake you made was biting off more than you can chew and not giving your own self enough credit.
I just ran into a situation that made me realize just how much certain people take advantage of me. The nice, kind, responsible person that I am, I easily fall for the simple words of flattery and always think that no matter what happens it is always my fault. I take on more and more until I get so overwhelmed that this stress starts to affect every aspect of my life. Well, enough is enough. It is finally time to think about myself, it is finally time to stop being so naive. I can try and finish everyone's work, I can try to please everyone, but at the end of the day, there will still be more work to do and more people to please. And worst of all, I will end up betraying my own self in favor of other people who will still not be satisfied. It's time to change this self-destructive behavior, it's time to finally understand my self-worth and not be afraid to expose it. It's definitely time to finally grow up.
