    A Good Cry

    It's never nice to be used by people you trust. On several occasions this has happened to me. Being taken advantage of, why? Because I'm an easy mark, I usually brush it off, but sometimes the hurt rears it head and I need a good cry. :)

    In the 8 years I've been married I've bent over

    backwards for my wife and step daughter. They've used me up financially and emotionally. I can't say how I feel and I'm to the point that if things don't start improving I'm either going to have a stroke or heart attack, or something worse... Why do nice guys get used and run...

    I'm Done

    No more being the scapegoat or even the person they decide they can count on whenever they need help. Whenever I need them, I'm on hold or on the back burner. That's fine. I don't need them to help me or take care of me. It's just nice to when I don't have to shoulder the burden...
