Yes, I do have friends like this. Everyone does. My neighbor, of whom, I thought was my best friend has recently made it very clear to me that now that I really have nothing to offer, it's unnecessary for her to be kind, respectful, caring, helpful or just basically pleasant anymore. Basically, I am indispensable. She calls or texts when she needs something and I always help. She will return the favor once, but that's it. If I call, and it's not my turn, for the favor, she refuses to answer my calls or texts. In addition, when we are around other people she will say and do things to draw negative attention to me. When I do call or text, "out of turn", it's not the fact that she won't help me so much as it is the fact she does not have enough decency to answer my call or texts to tell me she cannot help. It makes my blood boil. This is called a fair-weathered friend.
It would seem as if the problem with our relationship is she, and the fact that my feelings get hurt. That's not the problem though. The problem is; I put my hope and faith in a human being. When you do this, you WILL inevitably always be let down no matter who it is! NO MATTER WHOM... I set myself up for disaster by expecting from her. Instead, I must just put my faith and hope in a Higher Power. That way, I am never disappointed because He never lets me down. I realize I am the one who set myself up for disaster by trying to maintain a relationship with her. Instead, I just have to remember NOT to maintain any relationships, and treat others the way that I want to be treated. I know there are things that I have been/will be guilty of that have made/may make a friend want to sever contact with me. I pray that that they will always forgive me, and that I may learn something from my mistakes, as I have in the past. Therefore, I will forgive, and continue to answer her calls when she needs something from me. She may never change, but it's not my job to change her. It's my job to keep loving her even though she is imperfect... just like me. :-)
