TEXT:

But it wasn't like they stole from you; you knew exactly what you were doing. Think about it: every time you held their hands, mothered their frustrations, who came out on top? And every time you played the victim, how did you make them pay? It's about control -- don't forget that. You need to see yourself as simple and giving. Makes you feel superior. It's not like they used you. You left yourself wide open.
