is there someway to know? some test? should I just go with my gut feeling?
I have a friend. I thought she was a very good friend. but I'm starting to wonder about that.
I know friendships go through phases, like any relationship. I know there are good times and bad. but this one is making me wonder.
a roommate of mine in college jokingly nicknamed me the doormat. I used to let one particular friend that I'd known since junior high treat me not-so-nicely.
I finally learned to stand up for myself. to not let her take advantage of me. I'm wondering if I've reverted.
am I just being overly sensitive? is it just a different level of friendship?
I'm a loyal, trusting friend. I would do nearly anything for her. I realized tonight, that's not reciprocated. I don't even make the short list of people she invites over for Friday evening beers.
she continuously mentions hanging out when my presence could benefit her. but when I don't, the invitation is often absent.
does that mean she's not a true friend? or that I expect too much of my friends? or does it mean I'm just more considerate than most? perhaps she's just trying not to mix too many ingredients into her soup.
