    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'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...

    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. :)

    The Confused And Complicated Road Less Traveled
