Martyr Syndrome

opinionatedpixie:

I work with a woman who feels the need to do “extra” around the office. When she does these things she sighs in an exasperated voice,

"I have to do EVERYTHING around here"

No, you don’t. See, that’s the beauty of choice: you CAN do it or not. You chose to do it, you are not going to get a martyr medal.

What you will get is resentment, yes you will resent your co-workers & you will arrogantly think you are the ONLY one working.

Well, you’re not, so stop it. Stop your nonsense.
