    I recently ended a long-term close friendship because it was becoming too one-sided for my taste. I will be there for you whenever I can and love you regardless of your flaws- why can you not meet me with the same courtesy? If we are friends, why am I always the one making the...

    I've had many friendships

    that I cherished very much that I just had to walk away from because it was all take and no give. It's not that I expect everyone to drop everything and make me their number one priority but it hurts when I go out of my way to do thoughtful things for someone else and they can...

    It’s sad you know,

    when you realized that you truly don’t mean anything to a person. The friendship you had with them wasn’t really a friendship. Everything you two had done means nothing to that person. Just a waste of time to them. Even though they might call you a friend, in reality you...

    I've had one of these "friends",

    they call on you when they feel low for a positive word, and need help with something and know that your personality is going to be ok with that... But they don't give a **** if things were reversed. This **** makes me think it's a sick sad world. I won that race as a...
