Friends or enemies?
I've come to the conclusion that the majority of the human race just sucks!! I've been reminiscing a lot lately about the past and all of the friends that I had over the years. A lot of them I was pretty close with. Some of them lived right here while others lived far away. We had a lot of good times together. I lost touch with a lot of people for awhile but then when I found myspace I ended up finding most of them (there are actually only a couple that Im still waiting to find on there). I would be sooo excited when I found an old friend and would send them msgs saying how happy I was that I found them and they would respond saying the same thing...then, nothing. I would leave them comments or messages and never hear a response back. They would send out 340124 bulletins every day or they will leave me comments on my page advertising their band or business but would they say hello? NOPE! These are all people that I knew in person, not just internet chat friends!
It's not just about myspace. I guess it's just a part of life losing friends. People get married, have kids, get busy with life and forget about the people who used to be part of their life. Why though? I have always cherished the friends that I have and always tried to keep in touch with them! I'm married and have 3 toddlers to take care of, plus I work...but I still make sure to take time for my friends, even if it is something as simple as an email or comment on myspace...just to let them know that I havent forgotten about them.
I have one ONE friend who has always been there for me. We have been friends for 18 years now! She has 3 kids, works and goes to school and she STILL squeezes in some time for me. That is a true best friend.
I've gotten to the point where I dont even want to make new friends because people always disappoint me in the end. It never fails. I'd rather sit at home with nothing to do than have friends who only want me around on a need-be basis. Screw that. That's not a friendship. Maybe I'm just too kind hearted and maybe I should take my friends for granted like they do me?
p.s. one of the kids in that pic above is me! heh heh
