Good Friend, Bad Friend, Me?
A big problem of mine is that I sometimes tend to find faults in people that somehow make me believe that they are not a good friend to me.
Awhile ago I was very commited to this friend of mine who I let walk over me several times and I would always “forgive her”. Then finally one day I said F it, and refused to let her convince me that we are “best friends”.
So basically when I’m out doing my thing and people try to “make friends” with me. My mind starts going in circles, and I begin to pick out all the bad things that I don’t like about these people and stuff they could possibly to do hurt me . I ussually just don’t say anything, sit there and continue to think these “mistrustful” thoughts. Ofcourse that makes everything awkward and gets what could be a good friendship off to a bad start…or nothing at all.
I have a few friends/aqquantices that I have known for years and still can not seem to trust them. My best friend is my boyfriend and event that seems to be going down the drain because I’m always picking out the things that bug me most about him.
What makes a person a good friend? What makes a person a bad friend? How do I get past this mistrust towards people so that I am able to make some good friends? How do I be a good friend?
