Default General strategy question... blinds defense

I think I've developed a large leak in my game but I want to be sure.

Lately it seems like whenever I'm in the big blind and everyone folds to the small, they raise me. For some reason this really rubs me the wrong way, far more than a regular steal ever could. I wind up calling like 99% of the time and I almost always have to fold to their flop bet when I don't pair. Am I wasting a small bet too often doing this? If I fold here won't it just entice them to start picking on me more often? What is the correct way to handle this situation? How tight should my calling requirements be. I know it's very player dependant, so either assume the SB's stats are 'average' or give either/or examples if you please.

Thanks a lot.
