Giving 100% when I Receive 50%.



In the past 2 years, I've realised that I'm so quick to giving out 100% to someone when I don't receive it back. It's really started to dig at me lately because I get SO hurt when I've put in loads of effort towards someone and they've either just disregarded what I've said or taken in what I've said and haven't bothered to give me anything back (not like I'm expecting it but still it burns a bit). It's the second one that hurts me the most sigh. A lot of my friends and family know that I over care and I can't help it that's just my human nature. The question I ask myself on a daily basis is why do I keep letting people take advantage of me?

I think it's time for me to take a back seat and learn to not give out everything after one day of either meeting someone new or trusting certain friends with my personal life stories. I'm too quick on personal judgement and I always assume that if I pour out my heart to someone, they'll do exactly the same back to me. Guess who got burned? - multiple times by the way. Just under a month ago I realised that this has happened one too many times for me to just let it slip. It's always me that is the organiser and the talker and whenever I try to take a back seat, I end up taking over lol. Guess I just can't help myself.

I know I give out too much and I'm learning to hold back as not everyone I speak to is worthy of the information that I pass onto them. I'm always learning more and more life lessons and as 2016 is almost up I guess this was the perfect time to change my ways. I'm looking to go into 2017 with an open-mind and a slightly closed heart as I've gone through enough mistakes to not fall for the same tricks again. I'm curious to see if I stick to this word but alas I hope that this all works out 😅.
