Is it normal to get really stressed about bad behavior?
I keep getting really stressed out about others bad behavior. Either the way I’m being treated, or I witness them treating others badly. The former is worse, because I feel like I can’t stop it, I get excruciatingly mad it’s happening, and I immediately start thinking about leaving the situation, even if I confront the person.
I have a hard time telling people NO, and a harder time leaving circumstances, and knowing what to do next.
Sometimes it’s others rudeness towards me, making me feel like I don’t matter, or even treating me like a b*tch. An example of this is a coworker, asking me to ‘do a favor’ and I do it, and there’s resentment because I kinda knew I shouldn’t have to do it, that it’s his job or he could have done it himself. It leaves me feeling taken advantage of, and that even if I tell him no next time, I’m stressed there will be a next time; and I don’t want any of this in my life, I don’t want people like this in my life, I’m tired of it.
And most distressing is realizing I want to change the situation and feeling like I can’t do anything about it; I don’t know what to do next or they’re not gonna hire me, or the same shit is gonna keep happening... I want good people in my life who wouldn’t think of treating me rudely or taking advantage of me.
