    yes I know exactly what you mean.. Suckers!  Human vampires!

    The best thing we can do is to protect ourselves from them, develop strategies and tactics to avoid them and at the same time love them from afar!

    Sadly yes. That is why I prefer to live alone.

    I used to, and for years they were the majority of the people around me. I finally realized that I would never be able to be happy in my own life like that, so I stopped believing my intensely negative internal voice and cut everyone out of my life that reinforced what it said. I haven't felt worthless or insane since.

    I use to,but i have cleared my life of all drama,negativity and BS!

    These people are users,hanger oners,leeches and all around negative people,that only want to hang on to your coattalis and get a free ride off of you.

    Be very careful,they enter your life just for this reason,what can they get out of it out of you.

    It doesn't have to monetary,it could be info,friends or connections.

    So be very observant of the company you keep,and stay prayed up to protect from knives in your back and blantant lies and untrues from tarnishing your armour!

    Jangaplanet, get away from those people. It's your life, you have the power not them.

    No. Once you recognize "who" your vampires are, you should begin to distance yourself from them, as the vampires take and they don't give back. Time is the only resource that we don't get any more of, as far as we know. So we should do everything in our power not to waste it.

    Yes, I have.
    Regretfully,one is my close family member and I cant completely avoid him.
    But I developed defensive mechanism,shielding and grounding.
    There are ways to protect oneself.
