I'm Dying

27.12.2011 23:56 EST
I'm dying. Don't worry it's nothing serious or anything... Actually, I'm lying, it's serious! It's killing me inside every day. I have to live with it for the rest of my life, I doubt that there's a cure. Maybe I'm being over dramatic, I mean, I'm just dying. Or maybe I'm being reasonable. Who wants to face death?! It's a scary thing...

I look in the mirror & all I see is this disease that's eating me alive, crippling me from the inside. I don't know how to stop it or where to go to for help. The worst part is, the people around me are the cause of my disease. Yes, the people around me are killing me! Figuratively of course!

The disease I'm suffering from is Doormat Syndrome. Haven't heard of it? Let me elaborate. Doormat Syndrome is a disease which causes a person to feel a lot of pity for other people & treat them better than they treat themselves. I know millions of other people have it too.

I have this tendency to let people repeatedly walk all over me. It's bad, I know. Maybe I don't have a backbone, maybe I'm just too weak. I don't know what it is but, I find it hard to stay angry at a person. Even if I don't talk to them, I just can't stay angry. "So what?!" you're probably thinking. Well usually the same person who's hurt me in some way comes back to me when they need a favour & guess what?! I can't say no, I feel like I have to help them. HAVE TO!! This causes them to do it over & over & over again to the point where I'm like "Hold up, this person's using me!"
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not calling myself a saint or anything, I'm just saying, people abuse my kindness.

That's what's killing me. Doormat Syndrome. I feel like a doormat where people only come to me for favours. It's sad really. Nobody likes feeling used.

I guess I have to suck it up & stop worrying about other people's feeling so much! What about mine? I'm putting my foot down! I'm done being people's doormat! This is where it ends.

Wonder if you have Doormat Syndrome? Watch out for a follow up post on the symptoms :/ ...
