Though the years I have drastically reduced the number of people that I truly consider friends.
There are many reasons for this, the main reason is that I was always the one doing the bending over backwards, going out of my way just to see a smile Etc.
One by one these so called friends proved in one way or another that when it came to bending for me.
(which wasn't asked for or needed very often) their daily routine was more important than my own feelings or needs.
After 40 years of life, I have come to expect this from most.
Accepting this as a way of life has both it's good and bad points.
Not sure why I felt I should share this, but there it is folks. : )
