When is enough enough?

when do you tell yourself to stop trying and just get rid off all the people that are so negative around you? i feel like i am doing everything i can and i constantly get slapped in the face for it. My mother always taught me help a friend in need but where do you draw a line and let it go?

  • When you have to try really hard and put an extra effort in and there not doing the same that's when I start saying maybe it's not worth it. Have you every heard that song "you find out who your friends are" it's a country song. Thats what I think is a true friend is and thats how I am with mine because I know they will do the same sometimes you hae to cut people off when there doing more negative then positive.

  • I believe when you honestly say that when you try to help people and no matter what you try to do is always wrong, what's the point in even trying. If they don't appreciate it, what's the point? Not to mention the fact that if they fault in everything you do, negativity isn't going to help you any. Stop trying and get away. Then try to find people with a more optimistic view about life.
