    I Only Want One Under This Condition:

    ...that I will be able to be completely honest about myself, and accepted for who I am without unecessary, overcritical judgement.  And I would expect this same honesty in return. If I can't have this, I don't want to be around people..I would rather be alone...

    It's A Little Funny

    Isn't it? People say they care yet they are never there when you need them to be. Friends say they want to know more about you but don't even bother to try. No one notices when you are gone and silence replaces where you once were. Eventually people all give up and leave so why...

    Yes, I have friends, but I am more of a friend to them then they are to me. I have a habit of making friends with selfish people, who only care about themselves and who aren't compassionate to my problems or my needs. I think the reason I attract these types of people because I'm...

    My Thoughts On "true Friendship"

    I've learned a lot throughout my struggles with friendship. At the beginning I thought true friends don't exist because so often we trust our friends only to see them leave us, and so OFTEN friends come and go for very selfish reasons - I believe there's hope. I had a close...
