    The Confused And Complicated Road Less Traveled

    Tired

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
