When can we say it's enough?

March 16, 2012 9:15am CST
I always say i'm tired. Sometimes i'm tired of my job, i'm tired of my family who always say i need this i need that. i want this, i want that. i'm tired that i always listen to other people's problems. But still as a friend, as a family member & as a human. i'm still doing what i need to do. To make them happy & satisfied what they want. But sometimes enough is enough. The question is WHEN you need to stop?

I guess you have reached the end of the rope. But first ask yourself, do you think what your doing is right. Giving more importance to your friends , family and other people. Just remember that we can not pleased everybody, even we knew we are doing it for them or give in to their whims. I think you should talk to them and say what's on your mind and make your decision if you will still continue to do what they please.

I already talk to them, regarding this stop or enough. They just ignore what i say because for them i think i have a large understanding & patient. But i will still try to do things on my own.

I know you do understand them especially if there's no one that they can turn to, but I guess it's not your obligation to do what they pleased. They should also help you, we are only human and we need to take a breather too.

Yeah I agree it can be very frustrating and tiresome. It often seems like we are doing the same thing over and over again. I know for me a lot of the time it seems like I'm often ending up in at square one no matter how hard I try. But we have to keep going and trying to do what we know we need to.

It's hard to stop. But as a human. it keeps doing and doing again.

I hope that things have improved for you and that you are feeling better. Sometimes we just need a change of pace or to know that others appreciate what we do. When we see things we often feel better about what we are doing for others.

You should learn to say no. When you learn to say no, you will eventually stop being everyone's doormat.

You know, we are human beings we are not robots, we do feel tiredness sometimes. Sometimes doing our best seems not enough for others and it is tiring to give your all and not be appreciated. I do not know if there is a permanence in the word enough. We do say enough at one point when we cant take it anymore. But for our love ones, when we are well rested, our minds are clear we are back to square one and be there for them as long as we are needed. Maybe we just cant say no to our love ones or maybe it is just me. I do remember a movie about this asking when will enough be enough and the guy's answer is never. It is natural to be tired, but once we recover from stress we do it again. In life there is no point in saying enough, because we cant just give up easily on challenges posted to us.

Maybe i should try to relax a little. Or would practice the word Believe, Be strong & Survive.

It's really not easy trying to please everybody at the cost of your self. We must remember that no matter how hard we try we can never please anybody. I have the same problem, as I am one that can barely say no to requests from friends and relatives. I find myself stressed out and in many more problems than them after trying so hard. I think the best way to stop this is to learn to love ourselves and treat ourselves right.

Yup your right. But sometimes it's really hard. Even i try to do something to disregard or give them no attention. They the one who make moves to make do things that they sure i will react... crazy right.

You are already too late to say stop. It's time to get know yourself so you say STOP before you get tired, before it's too late. You let others cross your private boarders.

It already to late, but i will still try to do somethings to make things work.

That's actually a part of life. Someone will always be nagging at you no matter where you go. It can be an irritating little brother, a curious co-worker, a classmate, etc.. You'll have different versions of them whichever phase of life you're in right now. You have to learn to live with them or your life won't be complete.

No matter how we tried to put an end on such things, it's hard for us to do it. Simply because it's part of our human nature not to be easily get satisfied. We still urge to handwork even if we are already tired of doing such things.

all you need to say is "what ever you need, go do it yourself" once they hear these words they will stop pestering you, make time for yourself, turn off your phones, go out for the day, even leave the phones at home, do something for YOU for a change, if someone wants something, they can go do it themselves...it's time to think about you for a change

It's difficult to handle but sometimes we need to open our other ear to let those words pierce through and vanish. So at least even when they are heard repeatedly, one can still enjoy the beauty of life. Happy mylotting!
