Obliged - SashaQ

Q. Talk about it! I feel obliged when / because:

when I feel I have to attend family events, gatherings, holidays, birthdays, weddings and feeling obliged to reciprocate visits.

Q. Talk about whether or not feeling 'obliged' is positive or negative and if it's something that you can 'pay back'.

It's positive when I want to visit with people or my family but when it's expected I really don't like it.

Q. What else does feeling 'obliged' make you feel? For example, you could feel uncomfortable for owing someone or grateful that someone was able to help you.

I feel annoyed that there doesn't seem to be any other choice than to go along with the event that's happening that week with usually the same old gang. Short of moving I don't know how to deal with it.

Q. All experiences impact who we are and how we see the world around us. What impact has this experience has on your life and how will it affect your life in the future?

I think it would be difficult to say no to these events on a regular basis. I just want to have more time to do my thing without feeling like I have to clear my schedule for the next event.
