    Why do I always have to be the adult?

    I'm 17, I shouldn't have to be responsible for everything.

    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. :)
