Doormat--100 Words


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.


  1. If you are a doormat; if that is your station in life, then not only stand tall, all bristles ready to clean the shoes that wipe themselves on you, but reach up and make sure the sides and tops of the shoes are clean as well.

  2. I have felt this way today after helping a friend for almost 5 or 6 hours over the week..he throws it back in my face.
    #giving up on helping people

  3. Brother or Sister...hang in there! God knows your efforts and you will be blessed!
