Breakaway

Raft3r is a people pleaser.

If there is something I can’t do, it is to say no.

I know I am not alone in this predicament.

Why is it so hard to say no?

Why do we always take into consideration what other people might think of us if we turn down an offer or a request?

It gets tiring after awhile. But the need to please others remains.

Human behavior is so complex.

Just once, Raft3r would like to say: “Fuck off!” But I can’t.

That doesn't make me a good person. It only means I'm a pushover.

...and i appreciate you so much for being my favorite pushover. i love you.

though wait, tungkol ba ito sa pamimilit kong bagsak presyo yung GC? hahaha!

Raft3r said...

judayski, Yes. Nawalan ako ng tubo sayo, ha. Hehe

I used to have a hard time saying no. Before, I was like a customer service agent; my goal was to please other people.

But lately I've been coercing myself to change. I realized that I should be prioritizing myself, not other people. To hell with what other people want; right now, it's all about me, me, and me.

I'm starting to sound like a brat, ehehehe.

Andy Briones said...

Hey, you'd make a good prez! Why? Because you'd actually listen to people and give them what they need (unlike GMA).

Just kidding, ehehe!

Mabuhay si GMA!

Jella said...

You can't say no? Hmmm, let me count the ways kaya nung nag-say NO ka sa akin....

yung Cagbalite trip na di natuloy ...

hehehe. See you soon Denoy, bawi kami ni Omna sa bday treat mo. (,")

Mahirap maging pushover, prone sa abuse! On the positive side, dami kang friends - yun nga lang baka dami rin sa kanila user-friendly. Haha, I should know kasi isa rin akong dakilang pushover.

Raft3r said...

jella, Iba ka. Close tayo, eh. Kilala mo talaga ako. hehe

wendy, Let's drink to that! Hehe
