“If you don’t like being a doormat, then get off the floor”

"If you don’t like being a doormat, then get off the floor” is a motivational saying that has been printed on many images. The saying has been used by Al-Anon since at least October 2011.


Wikipedia: Al-Anon/Alateen
Al-Anon/Alateen, Al-Anon Family Groups and Al-Anon are different names for a “worldwide fellowship that offers a program of recovery for the families and friends of alcoholics, whether or not the alcoholic recognizes the existence of a drinking problem or seeks help.” Alateen “is part of the Al-Anon fellowship designed for the younger relatives and friends of alcoholics through the teen years”.
