    It's funny how people are

    so sweet and kind and loving until they get what they want from me. Then they act vindictive and uncaring and they don't know me at all. One of the many reasons I am about done with everything.

    Very Much So...

    Too nice and too trusting. Yet, these days I'm more aware of the situations that I would be used in, yet I feel bad when I say no. W/E Even when apologies are needed to be given, I am the first one to do so. Why? Stupid I guess. Even though I am taking the higher road and being...

    Not So Much Now

    I used to be such a push over. I could be fooled with a sad story, and I would get taken on a regular basis. Now, not so much. I am more canny and a bit less gullible.*what? what's that you say? you are broke and hungry? okay, how much do you need?*

    For years, since middle school,

    I've been so damn nice, so caring, so understanding of people, that they just take advantage of me, and walk all over me and I'm sick of it. I'm done with it. It's not gonna happen anymore. For the last 2 years or so, I've been getting a lot better with not letting people do it...

    Manipulation 101.

    Firstly I’m writing this as a guide to avoid being manipulated or I guess be aware of it. But it is a free world – do your own thing. One of the first things a sociopath will do when he/she sees you as a potential victim will be to escalate your need for him/her. It’s a...

    Thank You 2 simple but powerful words

    that can make the difference to a person. Recently, I was taken advantage of, not once or twice, but many times. I am not stupid, just goal focused. It was when insult was added to injury is when I snapped and cut all ties. Was I right in how I handled it? I am not sure...

    Not As Much As I Used To In The Past!

    I think as we get older & hopefully wiser, these things don't have a tendency to happen to us as much. But then we get old and it happens again, sigh.

    I am a good person. I am kind to others, and honest. However, people take advantage of me. They seem to label as me as a threat.For example, I had a friend. I met him on the bus, and we shared out interests. He seemed like a nice friend, until he was exposed. At times, we would...

    Many People Take Kindness For Weakness....

    The worst culprit is my mother. She is just a taker, I'm more of a giver. Her whole manipulation in life has been to act helpless and stupid. She's the type of person that she will take as much as any person will give. She gives no thought to the needs of another person. If you...

    See That Fate And Destiny Have Somewhat A Control On Life
