An unknown writer said, “Value yourself. The only people who appreciate a doormat are people with dirty shoes.”
A Belizean proverb put it this way, “If you make yourself into a doormat, people will wipe their feet on you.”
Lately, I’ve felt like a doormat.
Dirty feet. Muddy feet. Clean feet. All have taken a turn wiping themselves on me.
And, if you say anything about it, you are seen as whining or complaining.
Can’t you ask a question without being called a complainer?
Can’t you seek information without being called a whiner?
I don’t know. I really don’t.
