    Ha!

    I had to join this group for the simple irony of it. If you're in my circle you probably know by now that I have allowed someone to "treat me like crap" for the last 15 years. The funny thing is, is that I DO have respect and love for myself and have never tolerated being used...

    I Do Respect Myself And I Never Let Anyone Disrespect Me

    I don't really care who you think you are, it's just THOUGHT. Not fact. I don't care what anyone thinks when it comes to this. The last person who disrespected me was thrown out of the place I was in. And it will happen over and over. SCREW THAT. Not putting up with it.
