I Have Been Let Down By People So Much I Should Be Used To It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 683 People

    I had always known how to please people.

    I can easily figure out what they want without them having to tell me. Most of the time, it takes me a few while to consider their likes and dislikes. I exert quite a lot of effort to give them what they want. But sadly, i don't get anything good in return. I expect the least...

    I should be used to it,

    but I'm not. It's annoying the hell out of me that I'm not. People disappoint me constantly, and I should expect it by now but I don't. I hate it =/

    I let people use me and I've never really

    noticed it. The people who hurt me the most I'm so nice too and they hurt me so badly. The people who are the sweetest too I hurt. Like what is wrong with me. Ugh.

    My ex & I became friends again 4

    or 5 months ago, yet today he said goodbye & that he doesn't think he can be just friends with me. After crying for 20 minutes, I see on Facebook that he's in a relationship as of today. I'm so done with him letting me down. It hurts so bad, but I should be used to it.

    Honest with people who say they want honesty,

    only except when it's too much, right? Anyway, chased another one away with my mental illness and in record time. It usually takes months before he runs away, but not only a record but before we even met! I am too good at this. Anyway, not sure why I even bother, to be honest...

    I should have known that our "friendship"

    wasn't a real friendship. I should have known that it was just you trying to get back with me, since everyone kept telling me that. I should have known that when I told you I can't be with you again that you wouldn't want to be "friends" anymore, so why does it still hurt? I...

    A friend and I were supposed to go to Vermont

    with eachother and rent out a place together. Now with 14 days left he pulled out and decided he's going to Colorado -.- So nooow I have to find a place to live on my own. Ooor a random roommate which with my anxiety and shyness will most likely fail horribly.

    I mean it doesn't surprise me anymore,

    but it still hurts. Mainly cuz with everyone who doesn't wanna be with me, they always say I didn't do anything wrong... But if I didn't do anything wrong then what is wrong with me? I guess ill just have to be alone for the rest of my life Which isn't very long now

    I am used to it. It's still not nice

    though really, especially if you've invested yourself in a friendship or trusted yourself with someone who's a medical professional and just dissapears.
