The older I get the less I care. I used to be an 11 and always put other people first. I spent the better part of my life living according to what other people thought. In doing so, I lost a lot of opportunities and saw a lot of my dreams die. Now, I live for me and those closest to my heart, the rest be damned!!
When i was younger i would of said 3 but as i have got older and think back on all my mistakes i would say im about 8 now. I worry too much for other peoples feelings now and im fed up of being like this because i always get treated like crap and rejected!! x
I would rate myself at about a 9. But, I don't know if it is really a good thing sometimes! I love to give and I love to care, but sometimes I think I end up being taken advantage of. Obviously it depends on the situation, but there are many times when I wish I would just say "no" but "yes" comes out anyway.
I used to be a 10, now I would probably be about an 8; because my husband is somewhere in the neighborhood of a 5 with other people. So I have to balance worrying about his needs which involve his preference that I not rearrange my life to accommodate other people's needs; with worrying about the needs of others. If that confused you, join the club. I get dizzy sometimes thinking about it.
This question could refer to relationships or even personal health measures. Something should wake one up to the fact that they have crossed a very fine line and change is needed. How much and how far does...
