    Never Again

    I allowed myself to be used for many things.  For too long, I thought it was what was required of me.  I found that as long as I allowed myself to be manipulated into doing for others, I thought I was happy.  It was when I finally realized that I had needs that...

    My Need For Love And Approval Makes It Easy For Others To Use Me.

     My need for approval gives way for others to take advantage of me.  I put up with a lot just to continue a relationship.  My goal is to not let others manipulate me any longer.
