I Think My Friends In Real Life Are Fair Weathered

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 39 People


    I don't have that many friends in all honesty,but that is because I don't trust a lot of people. I find that people only need you for their means (sometimes), but when you need them they make themselves unavailable. A real friendship involves give and take,but a fairweather one...

    Pretty Interesting Everyone Here Was 'betrayed'

    I wonder if the more empatheic/kind whatever would also be the type to gravitate to a group like this?   I mean, because like most of the stories on here, I give/gave way more then I got back out of 'friendships', and just realized how worthless those friends are.
