Wanting something

true-friends-cryI don’t know about you, but I find it annoying but also quite sad that some people who at one time you considered to be good friends, and in fact you  may still consider to be good friends, only ever contact you when they either want you to do something for them, or help them with something.

I’ve unfortunately experienced that a few times in these last few weeks, and I must admit it does annoy me, although it maybe doesn’t annoy me in the way you might think – I do not mind doing something for others or help with something if I can, but, to only contact me to ask me to do this, having not spoken to me or contacted me in any way for weeks/months even although they know some of the difficulties I’m dealing with in life just now, is what really annoys me. It annoys and upsets me because it seems they are only interested in my skills or knowledge when it’s of benefit to them and don’t actually care about me, even though they know I consider them/considered them to be good friends.

Maybe the lesson I should be learning from these experiences is that these people really aren’t true friends, as true friends would care about me, and not just be interested in me when they need me to do or help with something. So choose your friends carefully, otherwise they’ll annoy and upset you at times when true friends would love and support you.
