Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Better Relationships -

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.
