    I've always been a purist when it comes to my relationships and believed that being genuinely nice and not playing games with others was the way to do. This is especially true in my "romantic" relationships: I attract users and abusers like bees to honey. They know they can do...

    Yes,

    I agree with the person who says it never pays because it ******* doesn't. Tell me, name one nice person who ended up living a good life...It's the greedy, selfish people who get whatever they want. They know how to use people like us. They know how to suck up to others. They are...

    My patience is quickly eroding,

    and I know that losing it with everybody won't solve anything. How do I deal with this when it conflicts my morals?

    I am tired of caring

    and doing stuff for people because part of the reason deep down is I want them to need me or appreciate it and they don't. So **** them and **** it all. This is scary for me because I don't really have much else to offer.

    It Never Pays

    people just take what they can from you and step on your face to get higher. Nice people only get walked on. I should start being mean all the time, tell people off and act like jerks to them. I always wanted to fit in anyway and its what everyone else does

    I always do people a favor without anything in return. But sometimes if you're too nice, you get abused. People take advantage of that.
