We form relationships with everyone we meet.
With certain people, we nurture and develop that relationship into a friendship or something more. The way we discern which relationships we choose to develop is a highly personal and unique method.
The reasons we seek out a special relationship with someone is endless.
As the relationship develops we learn more about them and as individuals, we grow and our needs shift. You can find yourself one day unsure about the practicality and need for a person to be in our life.
As you examine their behavior, look at yours as well.
Are you acting in such a way that, if they were to read this list, they would put your name by some of these behaviors?
Having To Be Super Considerate And Sensitive With Them
We are talking about having to be beyond reasonable levels of respect and consideration. It’s almost like they are looking for a fight.
Or they are trying to get emotional responses from you, above the normal ones you provide?
Regardless, if they can’t support their own mental needs how are they going to help you when you need it? All the energy spent stopping their bridges from falling could be spent on your needs.
It’s alright to help a friend in a rut but if they make no efforts to change or better their situation, you need a better friend.
