    Im Sorry

    I created this group out of anger and frustration. I had been let down by someone I thought that would never let me down. But maybe in having expectations about that person was letting them down in the first place. If I count all the friendships that ended up in nothing, I...

    Say Farewell to Your Fairweather Friends...

    ... And not a second too soon. RAYMONDE- "No One Can Hold A Candle To You" That song above is actually a tribute to vocalist, James Maker's good friend. Those opening two lines are inspiring and the song's chorus is: "No one can hold a candle to you When it...

    Love Is Never Wasted

    I used to think the love I invested into some peoples' lives, who ended up rejecting me, had been wasted. But then I heard a wise person, (can't recall who it was), who said: "Love is never wasted. The love you spend on others is recorded in your "Karma Account" whether the...

    I wasted my energy on someone.

    .. Learned my lesson...only put in what you get from a friendship. It shouldn't be one sided. slw

    I wasted three years of my life to a girl

    that told me she wanted to disappear from my life and called me a ***** in the process. For wearing shorts and a tank top in the summer of 8th grade, mind you. She had always been the controlling, everything we do is what I want to do friend. I always went along with it because...

    I grew and grew to like the guy.

    I really liked him a lot. There was moments we talked about meeting and having s.ex. Going on dates. I liked a lot. He liked me a lot. I asked him if his single, he said yes. Yesterday we decided to Skype. I saw him I smiled I can't help myself. I saw his hand. It had a ring...

    This happened to me. Was loyal,

    kind, great listener, selfless. Ended up that she used me, lied to me, never ever liked me, parents and sister hated me, never stuck up for me and kept things from me. It was so many years ago now. But it hurts me still how she moved on in a day and I never existed to her...

    Most Of The Time...

    even a sucky friendship yields some knowledge, something to learn. But I have had one or two where I was betrayed and I have'nt ever been able to find anything I was supposed to learn from it.

    I'm Confused

    Yeah, it seems I've been fooled and that's completely normal nowadays. So, next time when someone will try to do it again by acting like a friend and saying things only a best friend can say, I'm gonna stop wondering if that's true or not, I'm gonna whoop their ***! I mean, I...

    I got stabbed in the back

    and she spread a rumor about me. Now people think I'm a man stealer. Never put time and energy into people who don't give a **** about you. Luckily, her bad karma caught up to her.

    Can Friendships Really Mean Nothing?

    I believe you can learn something from every experience you've had. Everyone has something you can learn from them. I don't feel there is a friendship that is truely a waste of time. There could be friendships that end badly, but you did end up learning something from them...

    I wouldn't say I "wasted" my energy.

    People drift in and out of our lives as they grow and change and it's nice to put some effort in even if you're not friends forever. Making people feel wanted and appreciated is nice :) HOWEVER. A few times I have tried very hard to be friends with people for various reasons...

    I've wasted my time on

    so many friendships that didn't serve me with unhealthy boundaries. I'm almost embarrassed at myself that I put up with their behavior for so long and whenever I would ask them to stop they wouldn't. They never respected me or took me seriously. But it's hilarious to me, people...
