How to tell if you’re being used (and what to do about it)
We all have them - high maintenance friends, always in the throws of some kind of trauma that draw you in so you become involved, giving them help and support. You will always help people out if you can, that's the sort of person you are. But they will always let you.

i used to care about you, until i realized how pathetic i was to be crying over someone who simply didn't care. you hurt me, you made me feel like i was worthless, stupid, and unimportant. i let you get to me; in fact i let you control me. but i'm finally moving on. although you did teach me one thing: to never hold on to someone who isn't holding on to you. as for me, i know better. as for you, you lost a person who actually cared.
