    My "Friendships"

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    Kind Of Still Am...

    What A Crock...

    Now I won't go into great detail about what transpired but I had a friend, who I thought was my best friend, who practically stabbed me in the back when I needed her the most.

    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...

    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...

    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...
