Something is seriously wrong with the people of this country
I am in the middle of one of my most anti-social phases in my life (however, this antisocialism is only directed at my existing friends, yet i seem to be more than willing to see new people and explore new options)
Do we need friends? Like really need them
What’s the purpose of having friends in life?
- support when you're too soft to handle your own problems
- To cheer you on when you've done something good (or someone)
- Advice (if you ever listen)
- To hook you up with their single friends
- And to bitch about your emotional problems to them
Now does this mean that if one of your friends stops doing or being all of the above that you will cease being their friend? (Probably not)
Why is the main question, why do we keep them as our friends if they fail to match the criteria for friends, and why are we so unwilling to make new ones when we are satisfied with the ones we have.
I have lost more friends over the past 10 years than any other person I know, and it's not out of me being an asshole (I still keep mediocre contact with some of them and most of them still speak highly of me to others, of course there are others who don’t remember me as I am sure I forgot some of them in the following list)
In no particular order:
another Ahmed M
(F) the second first kiss
N (my girlfriend of a year and a half)
yet another Karim
yet another Sara
yet another Yasmeen
(R) the real first kiss
about 3-4 Dinas
And the list goes on...
And... I have no regrets at not being friends with them anymore
My point is that out of all these people, none have remained, is it just me or are your lists this long?
