The more I read, the more of a jackass he becomes. Though I had already figured that out! I once had a pseudo mother who felt exactly this way. She only had time and energy for people who could do something for her. She tried very hard to get me to be this way as well. At first, she didn’t seem to be like this, but as time went on, it became more apparent. I had to remove her from my life because of this. Her negativity was soul sucking.
