    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.

     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.
