When kindness has to end

I just have to say, I don't like being lied to. I don't like when someone does something over and over and over again. You give them another chance and another chance, and you think they'll come around. Grr.

I'm a pretty optimistic person. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. I like to see good in all people. And I've always had a heart for less fortunate people than me.

But sometimes when you're kind and compassionate, you get burned. Why do people have to take advantage so much? To the point of taking from others? It does not make sense to me. I just don't get it.

It makes me mad. And when it comes to that, it's time for me to give up on that person. Nothing lost from me. Just leave peacefully, please.

Same here. I give people chances upon chances upon chances--until the burn just gets too hot.

I'm so sorry someone was taking advantage of you.

I'm so sorry this happened to you. It's absolutely no fun to be taken advantage of, especially when you're being kind. :(

Cyberhugs!! I understand...as a couple of family members have really disappointed me this week.

{{{hugs}}} The important thing is that YOU don't change the way you trust and treat people. YOU did the right thing...the people/person who betrayed did NOT.

I'm sorry you've had to deal with this. Hope you feel better about it soon.
