People in this world have taken from me, have taken advantage of me, have otherwise kicked me and left me bleeding and for dead. BUT, all things wronged will some day be set right, and all people will be judged for their actions or inactions towards others. We're all connected as brothers and sisters in life and in death, and be prepared in heaven, you might just meet up with very unexpected people who are linked to you for all eternity.
:( I do not want to, but if we don't trust people, what are we(?), even after what it costs.
I know exactly what you mean. Its difficult when you don't enjoy conflict or confrontation, but you have to make a stand against this type of person, otherwise they manipulate you and suck you dry, all for their own ends.
