10 Ways to Tell That You’re Being Used

- By

10.  Your intuition tells you so.

Unfortunately, if you’re anything like me, you can think of at least one person who fits one of the descriptions on this list.  Hopefully you’ve shown them the exit already.  The thing about being taken advantage of is that even if you can’t see the forest despite the trees (and all of the loggers

trying to tear it down), eventually people’s true intentions always bubble to the surface.  Much like a tapeworm or tick, a parasite can only go so long undetected before it starts to do some damage to your well-being.  If you find yourself experiencing any of the above symptoms, cut your losses and rid yourself of anyone in your life that only cares about how you make theirs more convenient.  You can be a nice person, without being the victim of opportunists.

Have you ever felt like you were being used?
