When people take advantage of you

Do you sometimes feel people are taking too much advantage of you?

You are good, however, instead of appreciating you they walk over you?

I understand a lot of genuine, hardworking and transparent people go through this. Especially the ones who live by their values no matter what happens.

Here’s a question that would be of help:

“Have you ever stopped to be good to your own goodness, and not offer it to someone who won’t recognize it?”

Probably no.

The truth is, in the desire to be good and do more good, we don’t remember to create a boundary.

A boundary, where we stop offering others because we know we deserve ourselves before them.
A boundary, where we listen to our intuition and see that the best goodness is goodness to thine own self.
A boundary, where you can fill your cup so it could be good again, not that you get empty forever.

There is nothing wrong with being good.
However, it’s worth thinking if you are good to others before yourself.
