    I Let It Happen

    I know i let guys take advantage of me... but i know it's my fault too.. i just want the attention.. it feels good.. to be wanted, even if it hurts sometimes, knowing they want me makes me feel good about myself, even if i know they are just using me.

    Start Again

    I really truly believe I need to get stronger and not allow others to take advantage of me and my kindness and generosity.  Otherwise people will take and take and take until there is nothing left.
