I suspect we’ve all had people in our lives we’d consider to be our friends, but if consider these relationship realistically, we realise that they are one-way relationships. e.g. we contact a person to wish them luck and encourage them, but they rarely respond, and they certainly never initiate contact with us…that is unless they want something from us!
Does that sound familiar? Why is it that these always seem to be “friendships” we seem keenest to fight for, even although if we’re honest, it’s clear there is no relationship with the person, let alone a friendship.
So don’t waste your time and energy on false friendships, as there will be those out there who really will value your friendship and embrace a relationship with you.
