they want you to listen attentively to their issues and problems and expect you to give them all your time.. they want you to feel their pain.. they want you to sympathise with them and agree with their views and opinions... they want you to give them constructive advise...and solutions to their problems..
BUT... when it comes to sharing your issues with them... they shut down and lock off... they show lack of interest and care, they hear you but are not listening.. they try and shut you up... change the subject..... they cannot be bothered, they fail to provide the moral support and help that you give them... they fail to serve you as a true friend should.. they let you down and make your problem seem larger as they don't really give a damn about you and your situation...
SO... this is why you have to be selective with who you share your problems with..who you confide in, who you trust and who you tell... many people are fake.. they're not really the character that they play in front of you.. they are a mask that they put on and fool the world with.. people love that you have problems.. it gives them something to talk about.. something to gossip about and something to throw in your face on a rainy day.. that's the reality... not all people fall under this category.. but I can assure you, a large number of people do..
We don't live in LaLa land.. not everyone is kind, friendly & genuine..not everyone will wish you well or have your best interests at heart.. not everyone will care about you and be happy for you in this life... THIS IS A FACT... I speak it as it is.. no fakery here, no lies.. no fabrications.. that's why it's called real talk.. this quote below is very true - truer words never spoken..
