In your place of business or work, you cannot avoid people who are USERS.
They text you whenever they need something from you, and when you don’t reply they make you feel guilty and bad.
But whenever you need something from them, they ignore you.
They don’t even have the courtesy to reply.
They will try to manipulate you and make you feel bad until you succumb to their evil tactics just to get what they want. And after they’ve already gotten what they want — they dump you like a hot potato.
They’re back to their old selves.
They won’t even say thank you.
The won’t text you again for a long time.
All they want is to just suck the life out of you.
Now, they’re on to their next victim that they will prey on and use. They’re a living proof that vampires do exist in this modern world!
It’s painful whenever you encounter these types of people, especially when they are in power, or they are your closest friends and relatives. Sometimes you really have no choice but to say yes to them.
If you’ve been through this lately let me tell you, in reality, you have a choice!
CHOOSE TO PROTECT YOURSELF
You have a choice to protect yourself and not be used by these types of people. These user-friendly people (people who are only friendly to you if they want to use you!) do not deserve your time and attention.
CHOOSE THE PEOPLE YOU WANT TO WORK AND ASSOCIATE WITH
You have a choice to choose the friends and people that you will work with. It’s so much better to be with and to work with people you actually love to be with and enjoy to work with, right?
CHOOSE TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU DESERVE
Don’t allow these people to use you! It is time for you to step up. Make a stand and tell them that enough is enough. These kinds of people also need to be faced with rejection. If you’re having a hard time saying no to these types of people, let me help you.
Repeat after me!!!
Just learn how to say NO!!!
How difficult is it to say no?
“But Chinkee, I might hurt them or offend them, and all the more will they say that I am arrogant.”
So do you mean to say that it’s okay for you to get hurt and offended but not them?
Don’t think that they will spread lies about you. The truth is, people like them don’t really have true friends. Chances are, they also used their other “friends” and people can see right through them.
Don’t believe them either. Whatever it is that they are doing to you, most likely, that’s also what they are doing to others.
It is time for you to be brave and strong to do what is right.
Stand up and fight for your dignity and right. Never allow other people to take advantage of you.
THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.
Do you know people who love to use other people?
What are your plans if you encounter them once again?
Have you come to a point in your life that you are willing to stand up for your right?
