The measure of a good friend is standing by your side, not only when you reach rock bottom, but also when they do. It's easy promoting your character when nothing's at stake. Words are free, after all. No one's perfect and I don't look for perfection. But claiming to have my back, then running away the one time I needed you, the one time I needed anyone to stand by me...To add insult to injury, doing so claiming you have to look after your own best interests...You know what? Have a nice life.

I can totaly relate to that. When we hit low points in our lifes we certainly find out who our true friends are! :-/ x

True friends, the ones that stick by you through thick and thin are hard to find, but they are out there. A real true friend who has your back in good times and bad would have never bailed on you when you needed them most. That is a huge character flaw. You don't need people like that in your life. You need people who honestly care about you, even in your time of need. :)

Words are free, it's actions that speak louder than anything. It does bother me when someone goes on and on about what a loyal friend they are, then run with their tail between their legs once the going gets tough. Incidentally, this story is about a person who's ****** her entire life up by not being able to stick to her moral guns. I don't involve myself with people like that anymore.

I agree 100%!

Yes i do agree. Loyalty is a necessary part of friendship. It is selfish and immature to run away when your friend needs you. Very bad behaviour indeed. I say good riddance to people like that too. It is wise to choose your friends carefully :)

It says a lot about a person's personality and I don't want to be associated with ****** people like that. Certainly not call them my friends.
