You know, friendships are a funny thing. You find someone whom you think is an awesome friend only to have them prove to you that they’re just like everyone else. I don’t have a lot of friendship advice to offer, but the little bit I do have is from experience. For one, if they have gone through friends about as much as they change their socks, then there’s probably a reason for that. Also, if they have had to move because they have ticked their neighbors off, then they more than likely aren’t friend material.
I don’t have that many friends and that’s perfectly fine with me. Less people around me equals less drama I have to deal with. I have a lot of acquaintances and that’s the way I want it. I have people I chat with on occasion, but because of 2 not so great friendships, I keep those people at arm’s length. I know I shouldn’t let those 2 people keep me from making friends, but I just don’t want to put in the time and effort making new friends just to have them use me and treat me like crap too. And of course, the friends who treated me that way have since moved on and, like they always have done, made new friends within a few days. One of those people I do talk to every now and then because I’ve known her for a long time. However, we will probably never be best friends again. I’m ok with that. The other one, well, I have only known her a few years and she lives in another state so I guess it was just easier to turn my back on that friendship. That and the fact that she has relentlessly talked about me on her facebook and to her other friends. If she had just chilled out for awhile, I probably would have apologized. But it’s kinda difficult to want to apologize now that she’s told everyone how jealous I am of her (I’m not 🙂 ).
Sometimes I just think friendship is overrated. Opinions, anyone?
