I’ve helped my friends deal with some heavy shit in the past and never expected any praise or recognition in return; really and truly. After a few series of events where I have needed a friend to help me out they all came up with an excuse to avoid me every time I needed a hand.
I’ve been a genuinely good friend to them so am I an asshole for feeling pissed that no one came through, or is it time to surround myself with new people?
You are not an asshole. Friendship is a two way street. It’s time to surround yourself with new people.
