Talking You shall not abuse!

Ok sort of took part of that phrase from Gandalf but since I ain't a powerful mage, I have to use my wits. I'm starting this thread to serve as a reminder to my path of learning to not be taken advantage of.

Lets start with today. Co-worker said that they needed to change a shift with me because they had a prior commitment. Funny thing that every single time they have a late shift and I have an early one, they suddenly have some "commitment" that they can't just skip. Well I say, let them miss it or look for someone else to change shifts with. I'm tired of always being the nice guy and covering for everyone but then noone can ever cover for me when I have troubles.

Thanks.

Anyways for todays entry. This one is a lot harder to do because its family based. Being the eldest has always come with the unfortunate side effect that I must be the one taking care of the others and while I don't have a problem with helping, I see that I'm the one that is always expected to resolve things, even though there are others who can but just don't want to. Well today I took a stand. Let others have to move to resolve their own problems. I can help but I wont do others work for them.

It takes some strength to stand up to others, especially friends and family, those who are closest to you. I say well done, Crystal Orb, and keep it up :)
