I Hate Being Used By My Family and Friends

    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. :)

    Being Used..

    I hate being used by people that I love and care about..People always seem like they can walk over me because I'm so nice and I hate being so nice because it's so easy for people to take advantage over you and not even know it.

    I am tired of being the "smart" one. I'm tired of not being "technically challenged". I'm tired of my family and friends always coming to me for advice, but never listening to what I have to say. Computer stops working...call John. Cell phone won't work right....call John. Need...

    The Confused And Complicated Road Less Traveled

    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...
