Standing Up for Yourself vs. Being Walked Over
Whenever I try to stand my ground, people find me unreasonable.
Ex: I do homework in the living room. The TV is off. My brother has a nice TV upstairs he uses. He comes down stairs and asks for the remote. I say no because I won't be able to study and it would distract me. I say that the TV in his room is better and he was already watching it. He complains for five minutes about how its my fault and I could have done work earlier.
This is true, but can't he watch football later? He was already using his own TV, why distract me?
I tend to let other people do what they want and I try to please everybody. As soon as I stop, I get looked at like I'm some raging you know what. Is it wrong for me to stand my ground every now and then?
(Its not limited to this situation, other little things happen a lot, but this just stuck out in particular)
