I was wondering how many of you feel like you are a giver to a fault. Do you feel a little like a push over sometimes or are you just a generous hearted person? Also do you expect something in return for all that you do or are you basically always giving because that is the way you want to conduct your life?

I am the type that is always trying to fix things. Sometimes it works out and other times it doesn't. Though it does seem like there are times when I need help and everyone hides. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

I feel that I try to fix a lot of things also. Sometimes it doesn't work out too good. I am sorry to hear that when you are in need that people may not always be there. You seem like a giving person who deserves more. Take care and thanks for replying.

I used to be a doormat, yes. I'd give till it hurt, with both my money and my time. No more. I give to certain charities and that has gotten me on a list for nearly every other charity. I keep the "gifts" they send me and don't return the favor--I didn't ask for all those address labels and they're not getting my money. I used to say yes to every favor anyone asked me and got nothing in return. I didn't really expect anything, but when I was in the process of changing my life to a positive spin, I realized that I let people use me and that was one reason I never had much in the area of material goods. I love to do things for people and make them happy, I love giving gifts and money, but now there's a limit to it. I will no longer deprive myself in order to accommodate someone else--unless it's my children and they wouldn't ask me to do that, anyway.

I here ya dragon! Sometimes people do give till it hurts and then one day it just has to come to a steady halt. Not to mean that we shouldn't give of ourselves but sometimes we need to take care of our own and then help others. Thanks for your reply.
