Are You Really My Friend?

What defines a friend? is it someone you like spending time with? is it someone you can depend on? Is it someone who you laugh with? Is it someone you cry with? Is it all of the above?

I don't know if there is a real answer to this because friends are complicating; people are complicating. I ask because I don't know if I am unreasonable for this to bother me. I try to be a good friend to people. I am happy to help my friends with whatever they need, and I want them to know that they can depend on me. However, I don't feel like it is reciprocated. I don't know why, but it often seems to happen, that I can't rely on my friends for much. I am almost always the one to invite others out. They seem really happy and agree to go but I don't know why it isn't initiated by them once in a while. I don't have a ton of free time so it isnt like I am just siting around trying to find someone to hang out with. But I am willing to make time for them,...they are my friends after all. But they don't think twice about randomly cancelling on me. Maybe I expect too much.
