Ever feel like you give so much of yourself, and people just take and take until there's nothing left, don't care a bit about everything you've already given, but instead get mad bc there is nothing left to give?

Yeah, having THAT day. It's been a ridiculously hard 2-3 weeks.

I keep thinking of Eleanor Roosevelt's quote "Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't."

And of the poem "Do it Anyway" - if you don't know it, google it now! There are two versions.
