    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 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.
