3 Ways To Tell If You're Being Used
I write about black love for two reasons. Because I love black love and I am black and in love. But no matter who you are it is impossible to be in love with anyone until you learn how to love yourself.
The most important part of loving yourself is being able to recognize when someone doesn't love you the way you deserve to be loved. Unfortunately some people love what you can do for them, and not for who you are. Here are just a few reasons to tell if you are being used.
#1. They only call you when they need, or want something. These people never call just to see how you feel or how your day was unless it's followed by a sob story to separate you from your hard earned money, precious time, and your sanity.
#2. They're never there when you're in crisis. Rain falls on the just and the unjust, and life is not perfect. When you're going through this person can't even provide so much as a comforting shoulder for you to cry on.
#3. When you ask for a favor either they won't do it, or they're not around for you to ask. You feel alone even when they're there.
