Why do YOU think that you get screwed by your friends/acquaintances? Do you pick the needy out of empathy? Do you fail to set boundaries? Do you forgive too fast and/or too easily? What do you think?

The hardest thing is changing it when it was what I was taught by a very strict parent.
And both men and women do it, friends beside romantic interests, is what I find.
When I lowered every single expectation that I have, it really helped. I don't want to sound snooty, but it's been a really rough lesson to learn some middle ground to be who I want, protect myself and still be a good person.
It's been hard to change in some ways but also better, because getting the shaft sucks!
