Sometimes holding on does more damage than letting go!
We do many things for others out of our own wish. Sometimes they realize it, sometimes they don’t. We do things for them, because of the bond we share with them, the care we do for them. But when we are forced to do something that does not come out the natural way.
Once you are asked to do something against your wish, you should stop it then and there itself. It will hurt them, but they won’t expect from you in future. If you do not stop them at the right time, their expectations increase and you stop doing things in natural way, out of concern, like you did in past. Remember, you cannot pour from an empty cup, so always keep your own cup filled to give others. 😊
