Ive always been the kind of guy who never minds lending a helping hand to someone, or basically just give myself to someone to help them out with whatever they needed, since i assumed that if i ever needed help that they would be there to lend a hand, or do anything really, to help me out. But, two weekends ago i was basically deathly sick lying in bed, (missed like 3 days of work during the week, and spent my entire weeking switching from my bed to the couch) and all of my "friends" knew how i was feeling. Yet, no one cared to stop by and check up on me, or even call me for that matter. This small instance just made me realize that the people who i called my friends werent really my friends, they were more just...people that i knew. it really has made me feel that everyone just takes advantage of my generosity/kindness. Now i feel resentment towards those that i thought were close to me, and i really just dont want to have anything to do with them anymore, and this whole situation has gotten me thinking about moving far away and just starting over and not letting "friends" get that close to me, or letting myself get taken advantage of....but i just dont know.... is it the right choice to leave everything behind???
