Don’t let your loyalty become slavery (Lifehack)

It's weird, it's as if the whole team was more loyal to the him they thought he was than to the facts when they came out

Even tho it can cause us to be hurt more easily and taken advantage of we must remain good at heart. Be above those full of hate.

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. They don't feel bad if you go the extra mile for them, change plans for them, take, fetch and carry for them. They take advantage of your kind nature. Why is that, and what can you do to protect yourself? Take a read

“I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve…I want woman to look stronger…I don’t like women to be taken advantage of…I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is … I want people to be afraid of the women I dress” — Alexander McQueen

Always listen to your intuition. How many times did I smirk and think....."you know that's not quite right" but I would let it slide. I wasn't sure what it was at the time. Unfortunately now I know. Time to start healing myself and know that I was never the problem. Sometimes when you are amazing and caring you get taken advantage of. Sad but true.

A true friend has your very best interests at heart and would NEVER…Take from you without giving back. You deserve to be with friends who don’t take you for granted. If you feel like you are being taken advantage of, respect yourself enough to confront the situation. This doesn’t mean you have to stop being friends, but you need to evaluate your friendships and realize where to draw the line when you give yourself to certain people.

No reason for over doing things that go unnoticed already, can you say, being taken advantage of.

So true. It's much easier to point out somebody else's fault than to admit we as people have our own.
