    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. :)

    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...

    I enjoy being alone. I am able to entertain myself in ways I can't when I'm around others. But I hate being lonely and left or forgotten. That causes a person to be lonely.
