One of the things that’s always bothered me abt people is it just constantly feels like no one I know prioritizes their friendships. Like not just mine but in general it seems like a lot of people just don’t give a shit about their friends when it become inconvenient and that’s so painful to me to watch? I don’t understand it
I can’t even recall the specifics now but one of the things that cemented for me how abusive my high school friends were was after we’d had this huge all night conversation and had a blast something came up to where they’re pontificating about how ya always gotta put yourself first and that machismo shit. and it was one of a very few times when I distinctly felt “there’s something wrong here” in the moment itself. you tell a guy to his face that the memories and good times don’t mean shit? what’s wrong with these people?
and i feel like most people are like that at their core. it makes me sad
