One thing I’ve always found fascinating about nice guys and about being a nice guy in recovery is that we make an assumption that other people want us to sacrifice ourselves for them, to help them, to support them, to fix them. And yet when someone does this to us, we find it incredibly judgmental and intrusive, annoying, unnecessary. We don’t like it when people force themselves into our lives and try to fix things and help us. And yet we do that to others and expect to be rewarded. Expect to be appreciated. Isn’t it funny how ironic this is?
