    Where Do They Get Their Assumptions?

    I am opinionated. Some things, more so than others. I'll be the first one to admit to that. But some people read the posts on EP the wrong way, or see something that's not there, and the next thing I know I am being called a "dumbass" or "jackass" or something else less...

    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.
