I have been taken advantage of, because I empathise. Well, we all would have gone through this and learn a lesson at some point. But I never learn and it hurts, I don’t know how to change that part of me.
In my last post I had told about my friend who was diagnosed with some “fatal disease”, turns out it’s her imagination. I still pity her, I tried to calm her down and said I’d be there for her. I offered to fly across countries if her abusive husband wasn’t supportive. She had appendicitis and got it fixed this week. She had no insurance and asked me to send her money for the operation. I was busy at work with no time to look at my phone or even take a lunch break. She was annoyed bcz I didn’t reply for 45 mins. I understood her situation so I didn’t say a word and replied “I sent the money”. That was the last text in the conversation.
I had texted for the next 8 hrs to get to know her condition, if she was alright and stuff. She doesn’t bother to reply. I still think she must be not in a position to pick her phone, IDK. Don’t I deserve a text to have helped her in emergency or at least some one who cares?
I have been “used” by almost everyone I let in my life. Yet no one ever cares I am there for them while my tears are still unwiped.
