    So Wrong...

    I don't know why people think it's a good idea to take advantage of others. It just makes me so sad and tearful. And recently, I've been taken advantage of, by someone claiming to be my "friend". I was only used to give her and her boyfriend advice all the time. But...

    This Is So Freaking True For Me.

    EVERYONE ALWAYS USES ME!!! I've been told many times that being good is what matters most in this lifetime but I disagree with every single person who says that. Sometimes, I wish I had no feelings. I wish I was a selfish, greedy person who knew how to take advantage of people. I...
