Plenty of Users in Life

Recently I had an acquaintance who would refer to me as her bestie. First of all, I am not your bestie. Anyway this person wound up being a complete user. However, once they realized they could not even attempt to use me for any reason, they moved on. That is how you get rid of Users. Don´t let them do it to you. Have you ever encountered the User?

Users only use if they find people they can use--used people allow themselves to be used! :O)

I have but you know it's not important what others do, what does matter is our hearts when we offer something to others. If anyone had the right to be offended or angry with others it was Jesus. When I get upset with others actions I pray and thank God for them-I thank Him for the lesson they showed me out of whatever happened as well. God still loves them, and we are called to do the same-even though that's hard at times. Lol

@Courage7 It happens and it is part and parcel of life.. So, not to feel bad about that because that person lost you, you did not lose him/her.

Yes I did courage, I've forgiven her now. But unfortunately it took me sometime before I was able to realize that she was just using me. I am a friend to her only when she needs me. But when I need her she has a lot of excuses to avoid me.

Yes because they drain us of our resources.

I make quite a lot of money (I run a few investment accounts for clients) and know WAY too many people who will befriend you, use you, and leave the moment the exploitation ends when you stop paying out.

Not recently, but in my younger days there were the few out to use me for their selfish ends. Soon I learned to draw a line - siva

Having a family member who is a user provides an interesting challenge. They would not recognize themselves....they have no idea that they are seen as users by others. Most users are simply unaware and totally self absorbed.

They surely are you make a good point there Morley. The basis is the non awareness of others needs. Sorry you have that in your family.
