    At Least I Try Not Too..

     I will drop everything in my life to help if I can. I make sure they don't feel alone. I will go to them (if close enough to get too) & take care of them if that's what they need. It's just the way I way. In Toronto, I did that a couple of times for my friends...

    Never Abandon a Friend

    I can honestly say I have not. I supported and I am still good friends with a friend that had 3 major heart attacks and came out of the closet that he is gay. I would not be much of a friend if any of that had made a difference in our friendship. I would have lost a good and...

    Yeah and I don't. I never did.

    So I supported someone in their moment of weakness, and was always there for them and stuff. Maybe until a few weeks later, I ended up being the one in need and the person who I helped, not only abandoned me, but vanished from everywhere without a word :/ and some 'friends...

    No, I would not abandon a real friend when the going gets ruff! But' when you do something to hurt someone.You just don't jump back as though nothing ever happened! You have to gain the trust back..And will  probably never be the same. And if you do not like...

    If you abandon them then you aren't their real

    friend. I'll always be there for them, even if I'm a million miles away.

    It is hard for me to make friends,

    for people to get to the "inner circle of friendship" as i am very guarded, very protected about myself, and also quite introverted. But once someone made it there, they stay there for good, no matter what happens... even during bad times. Thats what real friends are there for...

    and she was really depressed about it. I was there for her but she didn't seem to want me there. She accepted other peoples comfort because there was something about my aura that just made things worse. I feel like even if I support people as much as I can, I won't get any...

    When The Time Comes

    For me personally abandoning a friend when they are truly in need is probably one of the most vile acts a human can commit. So many people simply forget about their own obligation to people they call friends but when it comes to crunch time, and expect all the support in the...

    when the journey gets rough. I know how valuable it is to have people who will stick by you even when they have every reason to walk away. In fact I have experienced this first hand and would go so far as to say that I would not be alive today if it had not been for the strength...

    Plenty of people have done it to me.

    One or two were probably justified as I'd took it out on them too much. But the rest, it's unacceptable. I'd NEVER do it to a friend. EVER.

    A true friend sticks through with you no matter what. That's why they are so hard to come by. You can't just be there for only the good times. You have to take the good with the bad and put some effort in.
