I've been in situations where I thought someone was my friend, and I wanted them to like me; however, that wasn't the case. The 'friend' just liked being around me because they felt I was popular in some sense or another.
Friends are suppose to be able to lean on one another; be supportive of each other. Think about it, have your friends been there for you through thick and thin? What about thru the good times and bad: breakups, loss, job promotions, wedding days, childbirth, even death of loved ones? I feel that if your relationship focuses on one person only, then it's possible that you are not in a friendship; you're probably more of a personal assistant or a sidekick more than a friend.
Something to think about; to test whether or not you're in a true friendship?
- Are you the one who is always doing the favors in the friendship?
- Does your friend only call you when they're in a crisis?
- Does your friend even bother to ask how you're doing? or Does she/he enjoy talking about themselves only?
Its hard to see what I wore today. The lighting is way off in this photo. But I wore a long cardi & blouse from JCPenney; cropped pant from Old Navy; ankle boots from The Shoe Dept.
Here's a better look at the blouse:
