Loyalty

Stop letting people use you.

Loyalty.

It is something you can't expect from everyone.

In reality, not everyone is going to support you and stand with you. There are a lot of people out there who are on loyal to you while they can use you, but once they don't need you anymore, you become the worst person to them. They will talk all manner of evil about you and will hate you for no reason.

It is sad to see how we humans act with one another.

It is so much easier to tear each other down rather than build each other up.

People will be cool with you and like you when they need something. Everyone in life has some people out there that only know your phone number when they are in need of you. Other than that you don't hear from them and they really don't care about you.

In a perfect world, we wish everyone would be loyal and that people would be real but this world is not perfect. You have people who don't care about you. People who just want to use you and take advantage of your good heart. People who you only hear from when they want someone to talk to or someone to do something for them but when you need them, you can't hear them. They won't answer their phones, they leave you hanging time and time again.

They are convenient friends. They will be your friends as long as you can do something for them, but other than that, they are invisible in your life.

I know it hurts.

Many of those people are the closest to use.

Friends.

Family.

No matter their title in our lives, they still act the same.

Honestly, let me tell you something. You don't need that in your life. If you always have to spend money on them and they don't even have a dime when you need it, something is wrong. You can give to them non-stop but yet they can't even give you a chocolate bar or a dollar. Guess what they are users. If you allow them they will take advantage of you and sick your pockets dry. No one is always broke.

Or they always call you when they have a problem and want you to help them through it. They want you to be that shoulder to cry on, but when their life is good, they act like they don't know you. When you need a shoulder to cry on, they are nowhere to be found. They are users, opportunists.

Stop entertaining them. You don’t need that kind of energy around you. Learn to ignore them and stop running to them when they need you.

I know it sounds bad, but let them find their own way out of things. After all, that is what they do to you. They don't care about you, so why must you do all the caring? What kind of one-sided friendship is that?

Please, I beg you, stop entertaining them now. Don't bring that energy into 2019. You don't need that, they are bloodsuckers if they are given the opportunity they will suck everything out of you.

They take your money, your love, and your things.

Everything you can think of, they will take and just keep on taking.

They don't care about you the way that you care about them.

Stop entertaining them today. You deserve better than that.

They are not loyal to you, they are only loyal to their need of you. Once they don't need you anymore, then you don't hear from them. It is like you are a puppet on a string.

This needs to stop now. Look out for you first.

Promise yourself that in 2019, you will not waste your energy on people who just want to use you and take advantage of you.
