Have you ever felt as if you're being used? What was it like?

I've experienced it a few times and its not a pleasant feeling. I don't enjoy the feeling of being used and I do sometimes get paranoid over it. I suppose this is from past experiences with people that has had an effect on me to do such. Its a strange thing but it can't be helped.

Have you ever felt as if you were being used? What was it like for you?

Yes it feels pretty bad and makes you feel like you are worthless. Ruined my self esteem and now I get paranoid about it, too. It is hard to contain this fear.

In a work sense, your ability to fill in at anytime can be used against you.They always call on you first when there is a problem and your role is seen as crucial so any idea of promotion is out. I have found myself worked to the point of having to go into hospital. Others like me kept in the same role and made redundant when systems change and others promoted as they seem too inflexible and just yes-men who can follow the company advancement protocol.
That's why they say never volunteer.

Hmmm, I don't think I've ever been used so badly that it gets me upset or depressed.

I remember a time I was used in a good way. In high school I was the smart kid in class so the hot chicks wanted me to be in their group when we did group projects to get an easy "A". I saw through what they were doing and didn't care. Of course I did most of the work but some projects required us to do work after school. This means I got to hang out with the hot chicks so I didn't care about handling the bulk of the work force. It also put me in the good graces of the star high school football jock who was dating one of the girls in my group.

They never treated me poorly but it was obvious I was being used because they were lazy. So in the end it was a symbiotic relationship where they used my hard work ethic and I used their status and gained some confidence talking to pretty girls. And damn did that help out in college, I tell you what.

Haven't had that feeling before. Probably because I don't know enough people for them to take advantage of my stupidity. That or I've been used all the time and am too dense to understand that.

It's pretty hard to even come close to using me, I grew up in some of the worst parts of Oakland, it's not as bad as early 90s and 80s Oakland but I was raised around those who did. Seen many who used their own family for stangs/211s, seen people use childhood friends, I have family members who use other family members and aren't afraid to kill each other and others if they're of no use. I can spot those who are trying to use me from a mile away, especially if they're attempting to use me for something serious. However, I have allowed 2 people to use me for a few things just because they offered something good outta it. If I were to be used now, I'd be pretty pissed at first and probably get back at the one who did it, but that's petty.

At work, because off my flexible schedule, different departments try to schedule me to work for them. A lot of times without saying anything. Usually they schedule me because their own people in the departments want days off.
