You assumed she was a friend, but then after months you think you're wrong.

I just went under this circumstance. What happened was that a friend of mine whom I just met last June kind of changed in a way that it annoys me. I've heard lots and lots of negativities about her but I didn't care 'cause I don't do judgments which are just based on hear-says. But it turns out I've proven them all right - this friend of mine finally revealed her mask when I realized she's a person with selfishness in store. I just couldn't stand how she supposes she's the greatest in the class and by her actions now it seems like she thinks she's the teacher's pet! Gosh, I couldn't stand her being so fickle! Now our friendship's on the rocks and I don't think I'll ever have the idea of reconciling even if we're graduating this March - some things are just meant to be left undone; might as well avoid than being friends with someone like her who turns out to be such a fraud. Well, of course, I think it's not only me who has problems regarding deteriorated friendships. How about you? Can you share some of your regretful relationships with friends? Did they betray you in some sort of way? Regardless of the degree of betrayal or offense, I still wanna know. :) Let's make this issue clear to avoid getting fooled again. True friends will always be there, right? But those who are faking will be more likely to slip away.

Thank you raisaraizen! Yes, there are lots of people that will still come into my life. I realized that friendship should not be in any selfish terms - meaning, it doesn't just revolve around her and her always. I'll still find someone who would be more worthy of my trust and offered friendship and I do believe of what you said. Thank you for your response!

I have had bad experiences when it comes to friendship... I can't really share everything but one thing that I have learned is that we do not really regret the friendship but we feel bad about all the bad times and feel sorry for what happened to what used to be special.

I'm sorry about what happened and the times you can't undo all those what have been done. It is really disappointing when special people whom you've come to know and their special moments shared with you will just slowly fade away, isn't it? But I know God has reasons for us to separate ways so I don't feel too bad about what happened, it's just regretful that time, effort and trust was put into the relationship and it just ended with a not-so-happy ending.

It's better to have LEARNED & LOST! Hard way to learn, but you now have the basics for sorting out potential friends & those with a facade. GOOD LUCK! Smiles.

Thanks for your inspiring words. No worries as I have truly learned my lesson.. And yes, you're right, it's better to have learned and lost than to win and be betrayed. Thanks so much for dropping by my post! God Bless you!
