I Tend to Have "Friends" Who Use Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 18 People

    Expendable By All

    The title says it all. My only purpose in life seems to be for everyone I encounter to use me. I'm 19 and going into my sophomore year of college. Ever since I was considered smart by everyone in high school, I've been an academic asset to "friends." People who haven't spoken to...

    Not So Much Anymore

    I guess that's what happens when you're a natural care-giver like me. I just want everyone to be safe, fed, sheltered, and happy. I often over-give of myself to make that happen, and sometimes it bites me in the ***, but as I grow older, I'm learning how to set better boundaries...

    It's Odd...

    ...but as I look back over the years I've had quite a few "friends" who totally took advantage of me and used me. Claimed to be my best friend in the world but always made me feel like crap about myself, all the while I'm babysitting their kids for free or taking out...
