"It is during the worst time of your life that you get to see the true colours of the people who
say they care for you"...
Your questions are awesome threekeys.
Ya we can see true colours of person in worst times only. In my life experience I always won't forget the person who helped me in worst times.
Our hard times will become more tough that person who we believe also not what we think but once we overcome our obstacles they won't face us. It's life strategy.
Caring is not just words its really we will found in our worst times.
No those that have helped in the worst times hold a very tender place in your heart. It may have been the kindness of a stranger or someone you knew for some time. And that kindness is held in the heart of the receiver for the rest of their lives.
However sometimes it's just pure coincidence when a series of bad things happen all at once.
Someone gets dumped by their boyfriend/girlfriend Thursday night and on Friday they get laid off from their job.
It's not as if one's mate and employer conspired together. Essentially there is never a "good time" to be dumped or laid off.
Sometimes just how life goes. When it rains it pours!
And yet we would not hold our employer responsible for hurting us the way would a friend, lover, or spouse.
So called "true colors" are revealed when a scenario arises where one person has to be forthright about disagreeing with someone or let it be known they don't share the same values or have the same expectations.
Two people could be great friends for years and one day one of them hits hard times and asks for a loan. They discover their friend doesn't believe in loaning out money to friends or family.
Does this mean they aren't a "real friend"? No!
Friendship shouldn't be based on what one (can get) from another.
Odds are the person he/she gets a loan from will end up being an ex-friend if problems arise paying the money back. Sometimes people don't want to be helped the way their friend is offering to help them.
The friend may want to help them find a better job instead of making a loan. Others believe a "real friend" always takes your side on issues. A real friend is not a "yes" man/woman.
Casual friends are around when little is needed or demanded. True friends help with it is hard, difficult, socially risky.
Often the worst times in your life are the result of the people you count on the most. I had a job for 23 years--good pay and benefits, I was called in one day and offered a package and resign or be fire and walk away with nothing. Probably could have won in court, but it might have taken years. I had been a good employee and had helped the new boss learn how things had been done and accommodated all his requests. Just being told goodby for no reason is hurtful.

Do you apologise to people, even if you are NOT in the wrong – just for peace sake?I do sometimes, to avoid any stress but I don’t want people thinking I’m a soft touch.
