We like to make others happy, more so than we do ourselves.
At times, we tend to do it so much that we forget that our happiness matters just as much.
And when we forget, we end up being taken advantage of to the point that our wellbeing and happiness deteriorate and we start to feel resentment.
One of these factors is saying no. it’s hard for us to say it especially when we love the person so much, and they ask for more from us; more time, more patience and compassion, another favor.
Too much giving to another person can deter us from our wants and needs. We can lose sight of our ambitions if we do not draw the line with ourselves.
We must stand fast.
