    Why Do We Get Hurt By The People We Love

    I am so tired of my family, I feel that they are always emotionally blackmailing me.  I love them to death, and I would never want them to be in need of anything, but sometimes it is so hard to help them. I have my brother, who is seven years older than I am, and he knows...

    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.

    The Confused And Complicated Road Less Traveled

    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. :)
