Have you ever wondered whether a friendship is worth the work? I have... and I'm having that "wonder" again lately. Don't get me wrong, I have some seriously awesome friends. People worth every bit of work... and they think I'm worth the work too. That's what a relationship is. People caring for each other even when it's hard.
Then there are the friendship leaches. The kind of people who give the illusion of friendship but are sucking every ounce of good out of you. I'm tired of feeling like I'm giving giving giving and not getting anything in return. I am a very loyal person, and the best friend around if you treat me right.
I'm not needy or clingy... and I like my space.
I'll take a phone call at 2 in the morning if you need me.
I'll take your kids when you're at the end of your rope and need a nap.
I WILL NOT get jealous if you have another friend.
I will make you laugh until you pee,
and I will love you even when you suck.
But for goodness sakes... If I invite you to my kids birthday party.... you better make a serious effort to be there.
One family came (aside form my parents). My cousin and her family showed up with bells on. Everyone else bailed. I specifically changed the date of the party so that everyone could make it. Then, no one did. There were some that had valid reasons for not being there. But some were just being flaky. The really sad part, is that those people have flaked over and over and over again and I keep coming back for more. Well, consider this your warning LEACHES.... you are no longer invited.
We had fun without you.
