I used to be a pushover. I did so much for other people, at the expense of my time, energy, goals, money, and sanity. I only dated jerks, and I couldn’t understand why there were no good guys out there. All the friends I had, took advantage of me constantly. I gave thousands of dollars away to different people over the years who never re-paid me a penny. I even drove people around like I was a free taxi.
I was so tired of being taken advantage of, lied to, manipulated, and I was tired of hating myself. What I wanted more than anything was to be happy for once. I wanted to feel like I had some control in my life. I just didn’t know how to get it. I honestly wasn’t sure it was even possible. There were even times I thought the only way out of my miserable life was to kill myself. Yet, I’ve become living proof that there’s a much better way.
