Finding out who my friends are.
Being taken advantage of is a horrible feeling. You know what feels worse? When you stand up for yourself and that person tells you how you’re the one doing wrong to them.
I love my friends and will do damn near everything for them, but when a friend is constantly asking for things it’s hard. It sucks. It’s life, and it’s a toxic friendship. I wish there was an easy way to fix it. Unfortunately, life isn’t easy. Now I’m the bad guy. I don’t want to be the friend that is always giving, while the other reaps the benefit. I want to be the friend who’s valued and treated with respect. Is that so much to ask?
Well, I’m no longer someone’s generous friend who buys things for them whenever they ask me to, and because of that they don’t want to be my friend at all. Not my loss.
