Have you ever gone through a phase in your life where you feel you must constantly sacrifice for others? I am definitely there.
Just a little while ago, I had to do something I am not comfortable with. I feel sick. I probably would have felt sick if I hadn’t done it too. But then I would have felt sick and guilty. Next weekend I have to attend an event I wish I didn’t have to go to. I am already anxious about it. But if I don’t go, it would hurt multiple people’s feelings.
But here’s my question: why are my feelings less important than others’? What have I done to make my own wishes so secondary to anyone else’s?
My pain is real, whether you can see it or not. Right now it would be obvious to anyone who saw me. I don’t want to keep feeling this way.
Please see my need is real too.
Please stop asking too much.
