The Opportunists.

Let me tell you a story.
The story of a stupid little girl.
The story of my friend...
(i wouldn't take her name, of course!!)

There was this.. Cute Young Stupid little girl,
She had a boy friend. whom, she adored very much.
At first she was very much excited about
how her new relationship was going to change her LIFE.
Inside out.......
The boy was of course, very clever,
whenever he needed anything, he would say- "Sweetheart, could you do this for me?"
and the stupid little girl out of new passionate love, would do it,
this continued for a while,
at first she used to help him, out of love,
then out of fear that he might get offended, if she doesn't,
then out of pressure that she can't get another guy,
then out of despair, that she might be left alone for her life..
but whenever she needed help,, she would get only one answer- "NO"

This story belongs to everyone..
this might have happened with a boy, who did everything for a girl, and was forced to do so..
this might just be your story,

Sometimes we just do something out of love for someone, and expect the same in return, but that does not happen.. at some point of time, it turns out to be so,
you find out, that you were being used..
the person, for whom you did everything, was just taking advantage.
the person may be your loved one,
your boss,
your relative,
your "So called" friend,
or it may also be "YOU"

and we call them  "THE OPPORTUNISTS"

who do you think is to blame in the above story?
The Boy? or the girl? for being stupid?
of course!! you can't blame someone for being nice, or for being in love, or for being KIND.
But there's breaking point,
where you have to choose between, getting used and getting away from it.

What to do in such situations?
when you know that the other person is taking advantage of you.
that you are being used.. you can't even know what intentions the person holds in his mind.!!

I always wondered, what if people were completely honest with each other !!
Like, someone would say. "hey, i'm being friends with you because you are popular , and i want you to do something for me"
or like " hey, i think you are beautiful, so i'm just hanging around with you, i don't care about "The so called wonderful personality or character whatever!! you call it, you are"
Gasp! but that's not possible and it's not good either..
Just like Nolan said " Absolute Honesty isn't always the most diplomatic nor the safest form of communication with emotional beings"

But there's a simple thing you could do..
you can learn to say "NO"
this might not win the situation, but it would show the other person
that-you could stand up for yourself.
that you could raise your voice against something...
that you are strong..

isn't that enough to scare the shit out of somebody.
So, next time someone uses you for their hidden goals.
be aware,, that you have two choices, either allow it to be so, or say "NO"

but remember, don't stop being kind..
because once a very kind lady said "if you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives, DO GOOD ANYWAY"

With love.
