How would you know that your already a martyr person?Up to when are you willing to sacrifice in the name of friendship? As of the moment my mind is still shaking and confused what should I do. It's been a week since I brought my laptop in the office. I don't want to be called selfish so I shared my internet with them, What I mean is that I let them use my laptop with my internet If I'm doing something.However I realized some are already inconsiderate that time comes me the owner needs to wait what their doing before I can get it. Am I too much?Am I too good?I don't want to offend nor to make them feel bad.

I think people need to be checked at times. A respectful boundary should be set up and if people go against that it is their fault, not yours. Being nice and considerate of others is a very good thing to do but you don't want to let yourself be victimized.

You're absolutely correct and that's what really what I'm thinking.Maybe I need to be strict at times and make myself a priority than anybody else.

I think so. You really do need to toughen up.

Well, if you feel that you spend less time in using your own laptop then it means you are allowing them to have more time with it. I think that it is not being selfish if you would want to use it ASAP. I suggest that you don't bring your laptop to the office anymore so that there would never be any understanding among you and your friends.

The purpose of bringing my laptop here in the office is to have clear communication with my home based business but I feel my purpose seems to be forfeited and it creates already misunderstandings.

That's kinda neat! So how did they react to your condition? Were they willing to pay just to use the laptop?

they are being rude, its yours, they should make sure that they are off when you need/want to use it.

Maybe they think that It's okay for me but I am just human and sometimes I also feel irritated and disappointed with what's happening!
