7 thoughts on “Why You Should Be Careful in Who You Label as ‘Friend’

      1. I think it was devalued long before we got it… As were “buddy” and “pal”. Younger gen tried to replace it with “BFF” but that died an untimely (but not-to-soon) death. Maybe “co-conspirator” … But whatever the word, it’s the importance that gets tacked on to it that depresses unless you’re lucky enough to have one.

  1. You are so right. The few people I had in my life, including my own family, that I thought were my “friends”. Abandoned me when I needed help. None of them even act like I exist now. To be treated that way, after I’ve always been there to help them, has cost my plenty. I no longer trust people. They say you can die from loneliness, I guess I’ll find out as time goes by.

  2. Thank you for your words and perspective. It is very true that we all need to figure out what we want in a friend and value the people that fit our wanted role of a friend. We all begin by welcoming everybody we meet =)
