    But Is It Really Enough

    i am always there for my friends...but i have found that they aren't there for me...especially now when everything is going wrong and when i just need a hug and a shoulder or a smile from someone who i care about it never happens....so is it really worth it?

    Even When They Aren't

    I don't expect them to be. I am the one who puts myself out there and offers up my ear or shoulder, whatever. I don't expect every person I know to follow my lead.

    I am always there for them no matter what.

    It's always about them tho. All they do is talk about all their problems which are just typical teenage problems.. It's never about me. I can never talk or speak up. They always interrupt me and start talking about themselves again. They would be like OHH YEAH I TOTALLY GET YOU...

    I'm 17 and I don't consider my acquaintances as friends either. A true meaning of a friend in my opinion is one who is willing to be there for you at any moment.
