Why does it seem like that there are people who not only expect you to fail but seem to go out of their way to help you fail? These are never the people that you think would be like that. I don't understand the reasoning behind it. Are they more afraid than I am? Why do they want failure?
I seem to have two enablers in my life. One, I will freely admit is myself. I tell myself "NO" but I don't back it up. I have realized this but I am seriouly working on it. Instead of just saying "NO" I now tell myself the consequenses of my actions. I hope that works.
The second enabler is a problem. I can not push this person out of my life or distant myself from them. They are there everyday and there is nothing that I can do about it. I have to develop a tactic for dealing with this person. GROW A SPINE would be a good place to start.
SIDE NOTE: As I was writing this I could not help but notice how many sentences start with I. When I was in highschool they made us write a paper about ourselves but would could not start a single sentence with the word I. Try it. It's not easy.
