    Others took advantage of me

    and conned me into making a fool of myself, including internet trolls and certain people who I won't mention. I will not let them get in my way, I will not allow myself to be manipulated by people like that.

    It's Nice to Admit This

    Sometimes, OK, MOST of the time, I go with the flow.  I don't rock the boat - it's easier that way. Now - I'm ready to be myself.  Actually, I have been for awhile now - this is such an old experience I'm just updating it now : )    So - no...
