    I let people take advantage of me way to often.

    For example someone will ask me for a favor and I really don't want to do it, but I feel like just sucking it up and helping the person is better than seeming like a mean person. In school and everywhere else I'm known as " the nice girl" and that's fine but the problem is...

    My Broken Heart

    I let someone who I deeply love and care about use me for self-serving reasons.  When I first met her, I thought she was truly a caring individual.  I thought she cared about my well-being and my success.  No, she has tried everything in her power to manipulate me and use me...

    I'm Good For Other Things Too! :(

    I'M Too Kind

    I have yet to learn to say "No" to someone seeking my help. Not only to my close friends, but also others who don't care much about me. My unselfishness has lead to my downfall many times. I have failed exams, taken blame for things I've not done, spent sleepless nights, made...

    I am easily taken advantage of.

    I think I'm too much of a romantic and get swept away in my ideas and then I get smacked in the face with reality and am left feeling ******** and empty.
