I Tend to Have "Friends" Who Use Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 18 People

    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...

    "we Should Hang Out At The Weekend!"

    That's what my friend said to me, and I'll admit, I was thrilled that I was being noticed by a friend for once. (Oh and if you're this friend reading this, don't bother telling me on facebook that you're not like this. I've known you too long, love).And then it turns out that she...

    Use Me, Yes They Do, Why I Tolerate It

    This story goes back 17 years to the present.  Honestly if I'd rather be dead than to have to live my life without friends.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to make friends with the Average Joe type.  The only kind of people that I've been able to make friends...
