because you have something to give / because they have something to get from you

Have you ever experience or have ever tried the people around on why they stuck on you? Maybe you have something to give for them that as if they enjoyed your company. You can easily please them. Like they believe in everything you said. Have you tried the same people in a situation that you have nothing to give for them. Like you are down and you are at most depressed situation? They seem sound different because they knew they have notning to get from you anymore. Personally, I have experienced that and it hurts me so bad. At least I know the real issue. I can feel the difference when I have plenty and I am broke. The funny thing is the people that you less expect are the people who help you in time of need. Do you have that same experience?

i felt that way with my trusted friends, i thought they are really friends of mine coz we used to have fun while i still have my work, we always go out to dine out on our salary day, we often talk to each other via mobile nor chat online but when they found out that i lost my job and yet im pregnant they just gone and even if i message them via mobile or chat they will not reply maybe theyre thinking that i need money and i will borrow from them which is not really my type, im not a type of person who will ask money to any of my friends to avoid any problem with them as i know most friendship ruined because of money thing. normally if i have financial problem it was my family who i run too specially my parents as i know they understand me well, though what i want from friend specially now that i feel so down is for me to realize that im not alone and that as friend they are just there behind me willing to give support me emotionally. but i failed with them, lucky to have few friends whom i dont even treat as friends before but then they are the one who give me full support with what ive been into right now. your really cant tell with the people around you as sometimes you will know whose real during the troublesome time of your life.

i ever felt that way. a friend don't expect my appearance because she know that i can't give anything for her. it cuts like a knife. but i just leave her too because i think there is still many friends who want me as their best friends and give an open hand to my appearance.

Yeah, i've experienced that. I call them 'leeches'. The suck the resources out of you til you're dry. I stay away from these kinds of people cuz they're of no advantage for me.

Yes, I feel that way sometimes with my supposed to be friends. I feel they are just there through good times, but when I need them, they're gone. With my bestfriend, it's different. We stick together even if we are so problematic that we don't have time to have fun anymore.
