Bad "friends" taking advantage of you for your gifts...

This might be long, drawn-out, & a bit confusing, so I'm gonna do my best to make it readable (I tend to type sometimes w/ a bit of a Cuban accent, or so I've heard. Bear w/ me...)

I used to hang out for a couple years w/ this girl around twenty years ago, who liked to take advantage of people by not only pretending to be something she wasn't, but was also extremely controlling & opportunistic. I met her in high school through my best friend, & we bumped into each other a few years after we had graduated (she graduated the year before my best friend & me). We started out by talking on the phone, then hanging out at her house, where she started telling me these bullcrap stories of a cult who used "cloaking devices" coming after her. Of course, I didn't believe a word of it, because I'm not an idiot. After she realized I wasn't falling for that whole spiel, she started claiming that she had mediumship abilities (of course, that was a lie as well). Right away I started schooling her on mediumship (I'm the one w/ abilities, never her) as well as spirituality, she would tune out because it would tick her off that I knew so much more about it than she did & that I wasn't falling for her lies.

Not only would she lie about spirituality & the like, but she would always try to one-up me, no matter how messed up the subject would get sometimes. For example, I told her that I was an SA survivor, & she claimed that she was as well, & tried to come up w/ a worst story than mine. She even tried to one-up me while I was having a PTSD-induced flashback of my assault by pretending to have one as well, instead of making any attempt to help.

As for how she could be controlling, there were times where I wanted to hang out w/ my best friends (including one who was visiting from out of town), & she ripped into me over the phone because we allegedly had plans to hang out & she had the audacity to say I was being a bad friend to her.

These are just a few examples. Finally, after my family & I had moved out of that house in Miami & into another house in the suburbs one county over, she admitted to me over the phone that she was using me for my hospitality because of all the times that she would spend the night in the efficiency I had in the old house. So, taking that admission, I finally tore her a new one over the phone, & told her to never contact me again.

Thinking back, I've come to realize just how much of a con artist she was, & how much of snake as well.
