The truth is that no matter how good it might have been before, you have to face the present situation.
They remember your failures and your losses very well but they never celebrate your accomplishments with you. They find more joy in your setbacks than your comebacks.
Lovers leave. Significant others screw up. This person wasn’t supposed to. This person was supposed to be your safe place.
At the end of the day we don’t want someone who exhausts our souls; indecisiveness and selfishness won’t keep us, call it settling but all we need is someone who’s there, knows what he wants and cares.
If you aren’t so lucky, you might have the friend who makes everything about them, carries constant negativity around, and always makes it their purpose to throw a hissy-fit when something doesn’t go their way until you roll over.
Friendship is sacred. It’s not meant to make you feel small. It isn’t meant to make you feel stupid, or like you aren’t as beautiful as you are. Friendship is a vital part of anyone’s life, so choose wisely.
