I Have Been Used By Friends

    I never had many friends

    as a child, nor as an teen. Even today, I can't even say I have one. Friends don't mean anything good in my mind. I met this "friend" online when I was maybe 13, and it was mainly just an internet game/role play thing, but we talked, we became friends. Quickly, he knew my...

    It Still Hurts Me

    The worst part is how I use it to measure my self worth. If the people who I cared about most could do this to me, then that shows how much I matter as a person. Do they show remorse for their actions when they're alone? Do I ever cross their mind and they think about the good...

    Friends, Ha Ha Ha

    I wish people would just get accustomed to saying acquaintances, I don't even want any "friends" if all they are going to do is hurt you or take away from you.

    I have just realised my

    so called friends have met up for a Christmas drink at my close friends (or so I thought) house. The only reason I know is their kids have messaged my daughter saying how much fun they are having and the adults are getting drunk. This is really the last straw, it seems I'm...

    That's Just How It Goes.

    I don't think I've ever had a single friend that HAS NOT used me in some way. In high school it was lunch money, paper, pencils, lead, begging to be my partner so they didn't get stuck with someone else, telling their parent's they would be sleeping over my house really so they...

    Too Many Times...

    To look after their kids, to prop up their own egos and the worst thing is that they pretend they are genuine and that they do care. It's sad that there are so many people out there like that. I so desperately want to meet someone genuine and kind but my trust levels are so low...

    Some of my friends use me in games for easy gold. Other times they use me for their problem solving and nothing else. I had a friend who had a thing going with my brother, and the only reason she ever wanted to come over was because of him. She'd come over for me just to spend...

    I feel completely used,

    and learned that I was completely oblivious to it. I am generally very open and love meeting new people and with those that I already know I consider already to be very close. This in the end allowed me to get used by everyone and I have lost the trust to seek others on a sense...
