Don't take friends for granted

It is so important to be a giver in your friendships. I'm not talking about giving gifts, I'm talking about giving of yourself and time. So many people take their friends for granted and are selfish. Don't be like that.... you will start to run out of friends.

yeah, i agree with you very much.. actually i was a girl that wants to have many very high quanlity friends, and i always hoped to get more from my friends. but now i realize that is too much..maybe i can be friends with someone, but after we get closer, we find we are not the ones we thought, so we can't be good friends in the later time. it is my problem...now i know, if i want to be friends with someone, i should accept her or his everything... if i dont like her or him, just do not get close and do not become friends..

I have learned a lot about being a good friend by doing the opposite of how people have treated me in friendships that hurt me. It is so important to take note of actions, not to hold a grudge or be angry, but to be a better friend to someone else. You are absolutely right about giving. Even people in my life that were takers, eventually move on or I wise up and move one. In the meantime, I do not worry about being taken advantage of because I have sown a good seed of kindness and many many times I have reaped a wonderful harvest above and beyond what I have initially given.
