Everybody's Different is No Excuse to Deal With Hurt

Updated on February 3, 2014

Some people are easy to talk to when others are not understanding at all. If you get frustrated with someone they tell you that everyone is different and that you have to accept is. That is no excuse.

If someone is causing you stress and upsetting you, you do not have to deal with it. Just because people are different does not make it right. Girls who brag all over Facebook what their boyfriends buy them is wrong. They do that to rub it in single girl's faces.

Everyone's different so that means that if you are with someone who is abusive or an alcoholic you have to deal with it? If a friend or someone has depression and won't contact you for months, leaving you hurt and upset you have to be understanding because everyone is different?

Yes everyone is different but there are deal breakers. Friendships is the same as relationships. If it feels that it is too much work then it is not the right friendship or relationship. Friendships are a two way street and if someone makes more than an effort than the other person than it is a toxic friendship.

It is possible to be friends with the entire world. That doesn't meant to make enemies or not give someone a chance but you will not like every single person you come across and not every single person you come across will like you. You can be nice but if you feel that a friendship is not for you, it probably is not.

A good friendship is enjoying the other persons company. It is being giving and caring. It is being in that person's life all of the time and not just when you are in a good mood. A friend who goes MIA when they are going through a hard time and not being their for their friends establishments just because they are going through a hard time is not a good friend. Good friends are there for each other in the good time and the bad.

If you feel you took enough in a friendship than maybe it is best you go your separate ways. if the person won't change then they are not the friend for you. Friendship is about putting the other person first. You could be nice to this person but don't make someone a priority who is making you an option.

Have you ever had a friend who made you an option instead of a priority?
