That's a pretty good way of describing it. I'm starting to realize I kind of attract this kind of people who, like you said, like stripping you and making you wear their clothes. Bit by bit I'm working to cut them out of my life, even if there were some rare good moments, because it's really not worth it in the long run.
The ratio of good to bad people in this world will always be tipped in favor of the latter. Always. But that ratio in your own social circle, you can control. And there, and only there, can the balance be favorably tipped, so that those who love you far outnumber those who don't.
