I Often Feel Used

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 247 People

    Everytime..

    I let someone get close to me. Every time I'm vulnerable around someone, or trust them, they hurt me, they use me. Physically or mentally it's all the same. Well you win. I've got nothing left to give. So stop asking for more.

    I'm 14. I stay at home watching two kids 24/7

    and They're only two. Sometimes I just want to run away. Then, maybe just maybe, they'd understand how much I hate my life. It's worse enough everywhere else, so why should I have to sit at home watching kids that aren't even mine? I should be able to have a life, go out and...

    Shoulder to Cry On, Never Vise Versa

    I feel that people only befriend me when they need comfort, then they turn around and leave again whenever they've gotten what they wanted. I have friends, yes, but most of them just act like they're my best friend all of a sudden because I give really good advice. It...

    I Feel Like a Lot of People On...

    I feel like a lot of people only bother me because I give them good advice and have a hard time saying no.  Even when I do turn and say no, its like they keep coming back.  I have my own issues to grapple with, and I just simply can't handle anyone else's anymore.

    For Utilitarian Purposes Only

    That is how I feel. It is only rarely that I feel valued or needed as a person. Usually, I am only needed for the material things that I can provide, or my skill at academic requirements. Otherwise... I have no other use. I am no good at cheering people up, I am not a joker, I...

    Shattered.

    My kindness is indeed a weakness.. At least thats what I think. When I try to be nice I'm walked on. When I want to express my feelings, they are tossed out the window. When i put my heart into something or someone..its stepped on and shattered. W.H.Y? I thought that kindness...

    What It Feels Like

    I've always felt like I've constantly been being used. The sad part of it all is how I cannot speak up or tell these people to stop using me. I'm scared that if I tell them anything, I will surely tell them something that will make them leave. If they leave, I will be left even...

    Always....

    I always feel used...it's kind of a given anymore. I'm either being used by my family as the go between. Infact that's the only time they're really loving toward me. When they need to use me for their own needs. I get used by guys at an abnormally weird rate. So often that I don...

    Used Sadly

    I have been used all of my life. No one comes over to visit just to visit me. They knock on the door and ask if I could do something for them. It's mostly about looking up something on the internet. I get all thrilled I have a friend visiting, but it's only using me to get what...

    I'm the Kind of Person ...

    I'm the kind of person that realizes how much a person means to me.  And, it sometimes feels like they just talk to me because I'm there and there is no one else.  I'm simply a time-filler..

    It seems that daily, I receive more

    and more evidence from all the people around me IRL that I'm only here for other's needs and I'm completely irrelevant otherwise. Feels good to be alive. (*** I need a hug)

    I give and I give, I never get anything back.

    And they just go on, making me a catalyst for their happiness, for sorting out their problems. And I'm left alone in the dark again. He pursued me then dumped me. And now I'm further outside than ever. So, so painfully alone. It's worse than it was before. He should have left...
