When I got tired of being a doormat is a phrase that you may have heard many people saying or may have even said yourself. No one likes being a doormat for anyone, but there are too many people that allow this to happen to themselves.
You can prevent yourself from being a doormat by taking back control of your life. There are some essential steps that you need to take in order to completely take back control of your life.
Here are the steps that will prevent you from being a doormat and allow you to also start feeling empowered and in control of your life again.
1. Use your voice to speak up – Don’t just sit quietly and do what others ask you to do all the time. If you don’t want to or can’t do something, then speak up and let them know. Tell them that you are willing to help them out once in a while, but not every time they need something.
When people know that you can be relied on, but that you can’t be stepped on, they will respect that and you for letting them know. If they don’t, then you may not want to be around that person anymore anyway.
2. Treat yourself well and others will to – When you treat yourself good, others will also. In other words, if you are always putting yourself down, then others will start to believe that about you also.
Start thinking positive all the time and get rid of negative thoughts. Also, treat yourself with the respect that you deserve and others will follow suit. They treat you as you allow yourself to be treated.
3. Don’t let others dictate your life – Being a doormat means that you are letting others tell you what to do and when to do it all the time. Stop others from dictating your life by taking back control of your life and using the other things above. When others know you are in charge of your own life they won’t be able to use you as a doormat anymore.
Now that you know how to prevent yourself from being a doormat, you can help others once you have achieved this goal. This will help you and others see how they can prevent themselves from taking advantage of them and help you start feeling better about yourself and you can feel more empowered.
