Hey Sol Warrior! How are you today on this lovely Thursday?
This week's topic is Friendships.
Today's topic is "Are you using me?"
"I learned that a real friendship is not about what you can get, but what you can give. Real friendship is about making sacrifices and investing in people to help them improve their lives." ― Eric Thomas
We have to learn the difference between someone taking advantage of us from someone who genuinely needs our help. We are steadily breaking our backs for people who wouldn't even do half of what we do for them. Why? Because it is something in us that makes it seem as if we are a bad person if we don't. When in actuality we have to set boundaries. When our boundaries are set then we can live a life where we won't be getting used as much. Meaning yes, some people might come into your life and use you but once you see the signs then you know how to proceed from there. We cannot keep living our lives for others. Yes, we can help others and be there for others but once you notice that things aren't being the same for you then it is time for you to cut that person lose.
Do you know someone who is using you for what you can do for them instead of how you can help them better themselves?
