Am I a Doormat?

I just finished reading My Life as a Doormat: In Three Acts by Renee Gutteridge. It’s a cute fiction book, but definitely peanuts. It’s a quick read, about 4 hours total. It was suggested that I read it…hmmm, I wonder why? The main character, Leah, is signed up to attend conflict resolution classes by her boyfriend. She likes to have everything in her life in order and predictable; she likes compromise and is the first to apologize, even if it’s not her fault; she’s always there to help out and can’t say no. It’s amazing how you can read a book and find aspects of your life that are mirrored in fiction or maybe subconsciously it’s just a deep ‘wanting’ to place your life in fiction.
