When you realize that a person has never been a real friend to you although you were friends of some sort before, how do you show the alienation?

Arrow I'm so sorry you've been let down and used by someone you helped and thought your friend. Because you are a true friend, you expect others to be the same to you and it really hurts as well as making you angry when someone acts so uncaring.

Just don't bother with that person in your life anymore, just avoid socialising or being around them if you can, or be polite but gradually more and more disinterested if you have to be in their company or work with them.

The best thing to do is to write it off to experience, but it is bound to make you less ready help and befriend someone new. BUT don't let it stop you making new friends, there are heaps of great people out there despite one bad apple - just be more cautious before you commit.

Wooooah - here I go sounding like what we call an "Agony Aunt" again :mrgreen:

I am just like my mother GT. She is so kind that people she helps also abuse the same kindness by not paying their debts or doing something that does not correspond to the gratitude they owe her. I get angry for her but she would just shrug her shoulders and say, God will be the judge. I don't know if that''s being coo l 8) but with these things i witnessed, i already developed an attitude of being overly cautious sometimes when people would ask me for help because i don't want to be taken advantage of. I hate such feeling. But my mother remains to be blessed and happy. Call it loving sacrifice? I don't know :mrgreen: I am not comfortable with that when i have a choice not to be fooled. Sorry mother :)



Anyway, thank you my "Agony Aunt" your wisdom is so eloquent. :)

Arrow, I think your mother is far kinder and more forgiving than I can be, but she is a very special lady and you are so lucky to have her around :D

She is my best friend, GT. We may argue over certain issues but i love her so much that to forgive and forget is such an easy thing to do. Mothers are great! I make her laugh often that she quickly misses me when I'm gone for a while .You are one lucky momma and grandma too :D
