I’m having trouble lately with the concept of friendship. I’ve always felt that friends are second in importance only to family. They should be there for you when your family can’t be. You should be able to turn to them when you need support, which would then be reciprocated should they need a sympathetic ear. I don’t have a very wide circle of friends. I prefer to have very few, very good friends. But, that being said, I realized today that even the people I consider members of my closest support network can not be relied upon to behave unselfishly.
