being the ever avaiable type sometimes i find myself in situations that i know i should not be in ... UNCOMFORTABLE..but i commit and go overboard in my extened hand to help..i mean all sincerity to help, but i land up in inconviniencing myself in the bargain..and loose myown time of self proctive use..i still want to help but yet like to be more selfish towards me..yet cannot seem to do it ..going out of the way all the time...any as to help and yet find time for myself..

I'm not really 100% sure about what kind of situation you mean but never feel bad about stopping yourself from being screwed over. If someone is taking advantage of your good nature, walk away. Dignity is important.

hey i understand-the nicer you are and the more willing you are to do things for people you get it all thrown back in your face-i tell ya there's a fine line between laid back and MUG, i swear i walk around with MUG written on my forehead but not so much anymore-no more nice lil Jas! you need a different perspective on life, do things to suit yourself-that way you'll have a (hopefully) happy life of your own! obviously you dont want to appear rude and inconciderate but once you find a happy medium-your sorted!

so i say look after number 1 and live a happy lil life! anyone hopping aboard!

Agreed. Number one is important. But why travel the roads alone? Beside if you think about, why are people nice? Because deep down it feels good. So in a way, in a form of being selfish. Think about it.
