🌀  Give away my resources (time, energy, money, body, services, etc.) for free or for very little, as if they were disposable.

🌀  Chronically borrow against my own security and well being, thus perpetually feeling depleted, indebted and/or in survival mode.

🌀  Overstay miserable relationships and/or flee at the first sign of conflict.

🌀  Unable to receive, thus compulsively reciprocate any acts of kindness with an act of owing others back.

🌀  Lack a healthy sense of entitlement in getting my needs / desires met.

🌀  Often beat self up, unsure how to nurture and meet my own needs / desires.
