The sting of “friendship”

I will never understand how someone can say “I love you”, yet hurt someone they love over and over again in the same way. I don’t get it. It doesn’t make sense.

Some people don’t care how what they do or don’t affects others. If someone really cares, they correct their behavior.

I’m not delusional or naive about how the world works. If you aren’t someone who someone is trying to impress, you’re screwed, no matter how good of a friend you’ve been or think you are. But, the bottom line is, if you can’t show the BASICS of respect to someone you say you love, do you REALLY love them or are you just hanging on to them for some other reason?

The closer you are to someone, the more you let them get away with because you love them. But, it’s hard to keep focus on the big picture when you feel like they take advantage of your forgiveness.

Maybe it’s easier for those who have a lot of friends to just cast their other friends aside or hurt them because they have so many friends if they lose one it won’t matter.  I must be the strange one. It really bothers me if I know I hurt someone I love.

I don’t know what makes people do the things they do, but friendship is confusing.  To me, you don’t blow someone off, say you’re sorry, and do the same thing over and over and over again. To me, you don’t promise someone something and break it every time. To me, you don’t tell someone you love and care about them and then treat them like they are leftovers.

Why would someone risk losing a good friend? Maybe because they don’t really love them or care about them as a friend after all. I don’t know. Maybe someone can explain it to me someday.
