生平事迹 #6 ~ Expectations Of Friendship

As much as I don’t like it as it’s truely a means to no end, I’ve been having thoughts of Lucy today, not like before in missing her presence, I’ve been thinking about friendship and what it all really means, since all things begin and end with her I guess it’s natural, from that came inspiration for this…

So what are expectations are of a friend? I should preface I have no problem helping anyone in need but i wonder sometimes at what point if there is any should the favor be returned, I’m not saying that if something is done for another there’s this idea of an automatic return, it’s more of what does it say about the person who asks and recieves yet never reciprocates…

Is it an individual thing… take Lucy I did a lot there far more than I ever should knowing it wasn’t possible to receive back due partly to her disability and selfishness, taking the following factors into consideration would that make one selfish themselves to expect back, if it is logic has me ask what is to be said about a person such as Lucy in the beginning for asking originally…

It also begs the question is it possible to be taken advantage of by a friend? If so at what point is enough, guess it’s kinda all connected to the whole expectations thing I guess…

So many variables only to lead to so many questions, ones I don’t have the answers too, maybe they’re aren’t any prerequisites for friendship when it comes to expectations, personally I just meet the needs of others if I’m able too head on, I figure it just avoids unwanted conflict…

Just something to think about really, if you should ever feel your getting used, my best advice if you are in something simular is to speak up, it may be as obvious as the sun, but not all things be seen all the time, so I’ve been told…
