There are some people who you just know, and trust will be there when it counts. And even if you can’t speak to them, you know they care, and they would do just about anything to be there if they could.
Then there are the victims. Where they’ve been hurt plenty of times, and give too much, and try to hard, for people who don’t give two shits. But the ones that do care, that reach out, that try, they are the ones this person hypocritically does the same thing they complain about, and play victim over.
All I can say, is I appreciate the first friend I spoke of, and I am thankful I have a few of them, as opposed to focusing on the second type of friend, who I also have.
Life gets busy, but that doesn’t give anyone an excuse to not be a good friend. And, it is up to a good friend, to understand the difference between someone being there on demand, and knowing that person would be there if they could.
