Doormats

We know what they are and we know how easy it is to take advantage of them. However, moderation comes into play as usual. If they are overused, they tend to revolt and stop doing what other people want, sometimes not even taking into account the sensibility of the idea. To that I say: GOOD. It’s good to not let people walk all over you. It’s good to form your own opinions and make your own decisions and mistakes. It is also good to then take what you learn from those mistakes, take action to clean up whatever mess  you made, and try not to make those mistakes in the future. Writing someone’s name on a piece of paper in the hope that they will clean up your mess for you does not fall into that category- especially if one expects a single person to clean up a rather large mess which that person has entered and is now causing to become worse.
