There are times when we try so hard to make something work that it turns us into a person that we do not recognize. I am a giving person and I am willing to give until I have nothing left. When people realize that, they often attempt to take advantage of a good thing. I do not like to feel like I am being taken advantage of. I do not like to feel like someone is using me. For that reason, I do not tolerate it for long. I give the rope – I do not tie the noose.
