Every relationship takes both sides to maintain. I’ll not deny that I’m a person who thinks a lot (like a lot), I’m quite an extreme person when it comes to friendship. Thus I have many levels to a friendship. My social circle is kinda small though. I like to have a couple of close friends, with whom I can totally be myself, and speak/behave freely. There isn’t any point in having a lot of “friends” and then I have to think of what I should/shouldn’t say. Then that’s just acquaintances.
People who can accept me, accept me, and we’re close friends. People who can’t, falls in the “acquaintances” category in which I’ll answer everything in a manner that doesn’t spark off controversies/or a need to continue talking.
It is true that one cannot expect the other to treat one back equally, as it does takes 2 hands to clap. It’s not wrong for a person to do / or not do anything for his/her friend. But when the other person starts treating him/her back as a normal friend/acquaintance, instead of how he/she treated you previously when you’re still considered a friend, it’s not wrong for the other person too.
Because he other person might have given up on you as his/her friend. When the bond has been cut, there are a lot of obligations that one runs free of, when lying does’t seem so hard anymore. When a person doesn’t matter to me anymore, I can lie myself through everything as I don’t feel the need to be honest to you anymore. That is a characteristics that is only shown to my friends.
This is it.
The saddest thing is when you actually did something to piss people off and you didn’t even realize it.
