Friends suck, because when you have them you feel like you are on cloud nine and when you don’t, you feel worth, less.It’s not like having family, where your joys are their joys and your sadness is their sadness. No, friends may be happy for you when you are happy and sad for you when you are sad but  their reactions to your feelings are fleeting. Your existence doesn’t really effect them.

Among family you feel safe, loved, secure, even when times are bad.With friends, you never really know how much they care and never know when it all will end. Their love is not unconditional nor is it even guaranteed. Their worlds will always be more important than yours regardless of how you feel, about them.

And the only time you truly understand how valuable  friendship is, is when it’s gone. When all the people who have been writing and calling and texting, stop, and you are left with no one. Then you really see how valuable friendship can be.

Friendships suck. It sucks to place your value in the hands of others hoping that someday they will see you the way you do.

That’s probably why we are all searching for something more important than friendship, be it lovers or family.
