Letting someone think you are true blue.
Some people not having a clue.

Turning a trusting soul into a skeptic.
Everything now seems so hectic.

What users don't think about,
Is that they cause alot of doubt.

The outcome is a person who feels foolish
mistrustful, hurting and abused.

So before you play with someones feelings,

They wouldn't want to....

be treated in the same manner and won't allow it to happen to themselves. They are always the victim, no matter what they do or say to others. It's a mental illness, or a moral depravity, maybe both. It's scary.

words of wisdom

Thanks Barb, for your wise words. From a personal and professional standpoint, I wish there was someway to shake up and wakeup people who behave in such a careless manner. This type of person is often so consumed with him or herself that they can't look past their nose to see how they have injured those in their wake. Sad, very sad!

thanks caty

Yeh when you talk to this kind they always turn whatever you are saying back to them .They've had it bigger, better or longer than you.Someone so wrapped up in themself I try to avoid.That's one thing with age comes
