… or one of them is, not hurting anyone.
That’s not to say I willingly play the martyr role. I’m not really about that, although I think sometimes it can appear that I’m doing that.
I just don’t want to be the cause of someone else’s pain or see others suffering if I can stop it.
It’s intolerable for me.
I will literally toss myself in front of the bus to save a person.
The two people I have had to cut out of my life in the history of my lifetime, I feel tremendous guilt about. In both cases, it was the right thing to do, but it has been years and I still feel awful about it.
I need better boundaries.
