    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...

    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.

    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...
