I love frendship. Isn't it great the way you think you have friends until you need them and then, all of a sudden, you find out that your 'friends' just don't look at you that way. They think you're all independant and capable and strong so you don't need help.
I am fairly independant, occasionally capable and usually quite strong. It doesn't mean that I never need help, just that I never get it because my 'friends' are always off helping their obviously needy friends.
As someone once said to me "At least you have your dignity."
Possibly. I think dignity is what you get when you can't have money or power.
Cynical? Me? Hell yeah.
