For years I have had high expectations of my friends. The thing I value the most about a friendship is meaning something to the other person. If you don't mean anything to the other person are you really friends? Not really. At least not in my opinion. I went over to my friends house tonight to watch her kid while she had some time to herself. Before I came she said she had no energy. When I left she said I have more energy, it must have been the broccoli. I was hurt by that because to me if I am feeling depressed and have no energy someone coming over would give me more energy, I would say that I felt better because of the person who came over, not because of the food. I am sure eating did help but I wanted some recognition that having a friend over also improved her mood, unless of course we are not friends, then yeah I can see how my presence would have no effect on my friends mood. Sorry for the long post, I was just hurt by meaning nothing to my friend. I am always getting hurt whether it is by her or other friends. I think my expectations are too high and that is what causes me to get hurt so easily. I guess I am asking for advice from you guys on whether I was right or wrong to feel hurt and how I can change my thinking so I don't get hurt half as often.
