You pretend you are too tough to care about anything and anyone. When someone hurts your feelings, you sit back and let it happen without saying a word because you don’t want to admit you care. You wear a straight face, even when you are in excruciating pain.
You are never the one to walk away. You give out a million chances. You forgive friends, exes, and almosts even if they don’t bother giving you an apology. You let them hurt you in the same ways over and over again because you care about them too much to leave.
You let other people make decisions for you. You never voice your opinion because you are a people pleaser. You follow the crowd. You give them whatever they want. You cannot remember the last time you picked the movie or the restaurant with your friend group or boyfriend/girlfriend because you leave the choice to them.
You are quiet. You never ask for what you want. You never complain when something goes wrong. You go with the flow but that isn’t always a good thing. You take the hands you are dealt in life without fighting for more, without reaching for what you deserve.
You’re always the one standing on the bus because you offered up your seat. You are the one buying items you do not need from salesman because you feel guilty turning them away from your door. You call it kindness, but it sometimes reaches a point where you aretoo nice.
You are always apologizing for something, even if it is not your fault. If someone stumbles into you, you will say sorry. You are always worried you are bothering someone. You are convinced you are a burden. You feel guilty taking up space because you don’t see your own value.
You give out the benefit of the doubt. You see the best in people. Even when someone is clearly taking advantage of you, you make excuses for them. You assume there must be some other explanation because they would never want to hurt you.
You are always running around, doing favors for the people you care about. You never say no. If someone asks for your help, you are there for them, even if it means sacrificing your own needs. There are multiple people in your world who only talk to you when they need something and you let it happen.
You give into peer pressure. If your friends keep hounding you about taking another shot or pouring another glass of wine, you will give in. You want to impress the people around you, you want to fit in, so you never resist for long. You give the people what they want.
You never fight back. You internalize your feelings. Instead of going through the trouble of having an argument, you stuff your emotions into your chest and deal with whatever bullshit someone is putting you through because it’s easier than making a scene.
You are too soft. You give in too easily because you are not a fan of conflict. If someone argues with you, you will let them have their way. Winning is not that important to you. You would rather skip the fight. You would rather preserve your friendships.
You are wishy-washy. Your opinion is easily swayed. When enough of your friends love something or hate something, you end up agreeing with them. You’re not stubborn when it comes to what you believe. It changes, depending on your social circle.
