I just ended a 14yr friendship with my best friend. The past year she's completely changed. I've tried to call and make plans for us to get together/ get our kids together and I got ditched quite a few times for her new friends. She actually told me that maybe we could hang out one day IF her bf got deployed. I've tried and I'm done.
My friend and I are only a once in a while talking basis after 17 yrs of friendship. Took us 2 yrs maybe 3 to start talking again. It saddens me a lot. I've changed and she hasn't. But I changed for good where as she has stayed the same in a rough tough place.
I only have 1 friend now. Lol been friends same amount of time. We were all friends at one point
Its better to have supportive friends. I mean yea sometimes you come in contact with people that are sometimes if not always negative thinkers, but they still are able to encourage other people. A lot of people feel that the more friends you have the better off you are. I feel that if I only have one friend and that person was a true friend then i wouldn't neccesarly need more, if I find more people that fit the kind of friend I want then great. I've learned the hard way some people even if they say they are your friend they really aren't.
