‘If you want to know who your friends are, get yourself a jail sentence.’
Through my life I’ve had so many ‘lovely friends’ who would ‘verbally’ give and physically take. They would expect me to be there for them 24/7 to help and support them. Needless to say, when I needed a little favour they would suddenly become very absorbed in their pitiful lives. How do I deal with so called parasites? When I spot a potential parasite, I observe them and when my suspicions are confirmed I subtly distance myself from them living happily ever after in peace.
