Do you ever wonder...what makes you put up with certain people??
I often ask myself , why do i behave a certain way when i absolutely dont want to behave that way....more often than not I can't give myself a convincing answer. Is it love, is it respect, is it fear, or is it out of habit?? There is something which makes me behave thay way and bear all the nonsense. I do realize its all not worth it, but then again I feel it might just be worth it...
If i stop now I know i can save myself a lot of pain and stress but the question is...Do i want to stop???

There is a very small difference between love, respect and fear !!
You also respect the people you love an at time fear them too..
Our behaviour mostly come from the way we want people to behave with us..
Men tend to be extra nice to the pretty girl in the department because they want her attention..
Sub-ordinates behave differently in front of bosses (trying to impress them) again for the attention.
This desire for attention is very evident and direct in us when we are kids.. You will see a toddler cry for attention.. But as we grow up we disguise the desire well.. but we still need the attention / appreciation..

Because there are so many of us in one of us.
And only the one that satisfies them all, wins it all.

i agree with what jiju said.. i think at some level u still feel the need for their appreciation.. so maybe u continue behaving the way u have been for so long.. which earlier would work as you would expect.

but when sometimes the scenario changes.. maybe its wise to still keep an eye on the same goal.. but look for a fresh new approach.

and remember that sometimes the best way to convince others may be to BE convinced urself and ACT that way for your own self.

I guess how much u like the person defines how much you can put up with him/her..

I understand what you are saying..at least I think I do.

We all do it sometimes appi.
Do things we are not convinced about.
Say stuff we dont really mean.
Only because we are afraid that in the course of following our mind we will end up hurting those who we consider close to us.

But appi there is only a limit to which you can do this to yourself.
I would say..its you who has to define that line and then never cross it for your own sake.

Coz if you dont prioritize your own feelings..no one else will.

Might sounds selfish - but thats the only way to give peace a chance.

And as for the need of appreciation as said above,

If you are really really convinced about something...you will realise that appreciation from others doesnt really matter. Then the only thing that starts mattering is what you want.

Wanting a lot is allright..its human
but feelin bad/sad/depressed if all of it doesnt come true ....thats when things get ugly.
you just make a slight effort to get over things... and it happens.
Trust me!
but you genuinely should make that effort.
