me? is this
How can you tell if you’re too nice? Take a squiz at our checklist and tick which ones apply.
You’re the go-to person for other people’s needs and problems but don’t feel there’s a reciprocal agreement in place.
You’re always available and will drop whatever you’re doing to help, no matter the personal consequences.
You pretend you’re up when you’re down to avoid ‘burdening’ others.
You do ‘everything’ at home even though other able-bodied people live there, too.
You often feel taken for granted.
You have a tough time saying no, then fret about what you’ve agreed to.
You put up with blatant rudeness from others.
Your to-do list feels overwhelming.
You go along with other people’s decisions (where to eat, which house to buy!) even if it’s not what you want.
You apologise for things that aren’t your fault.
You’re always the baby sitter, dog minder, gift buyer, designated driver or hostess.
You put your own needs and wants on the back burner.
