"Joseph, I assume from one of your other posts that you've left school and haven't gone to sixth form? I know when you've first left school finding friends can seem a bit daunting but it needn't be. You need to create a lifestyle…"
"Another course of action: the next time one of these parasites ask for for a favor, tell him "No" point blank. When he asks why, remind of how he still owes you for all the other stuff you've done for him. You never know, it…"
"i have to say -- There are no victims only volunteers - Just for in the future, you shouldn't give money or do favors under the assumption that you will be paid back in kind. It just a resentment waiting to happen. If you can't do it…"
"You said you where out of High School.
When and where do you meet up with them. If it is after hours, plan other things to do. Change the places you hang out. When they ask to meet up have other plans and don't tell them…"

"I'd very much like a response to this myself. I also live in an area where most young men and women move away almost immediately after high school if they can which makes dating and group bonding tricky. The friends I do have have gotten used…"
I'l give you guys a bit of a back story, right now i'm at a point in my life where the only friends I have take advantage of me and even thought I help them every day they never do anything in return. I am sick of this situation, and I just want to leave this group of friends and never see them again.

"It's a shame as I loved the initiation. I am going to attend another mens groups and hope that maybe this will be a more supportive initiation for me. I was very keen on MKP and thought before PIT that I had found the supportive group of men…"

My parents also got divorced.…"
"I was let down as the trainer did not remember me or my journey. He was very powerful and everyone was subservient to him. He put me in my place and I realised mkp was not open to negative feelings toward him or the processes. Kindness and care was…"
