Taking things for granted

When I first started my blog, more than anything else, I wanted to be real. Lately I've found myself writing posts, only to delete them before publishing. It's usually because I feel like the subject is too deep, and other times I worry about the readers. Today I remembered the main reason I started my blog. I want somewhere to be able to look back on when I'm old and grey and read through my thoughts and experiences. Lately I have been so caught up in writing reviews and hauls that I have totally bypassed the entire purpose of this whole thing.
I guess that's my little warning to you that something deep is about to begin...

Have you ever had somebody in your life that you feel doesn't appreciate you? I've felt that way lately about a certain person I thought was a close friend. With me being me, I concocted a little plan. I decided to put her to the test and see exactly where I stood. Over the last couple of months I decided to leave our friendship up to her. I've waited to hear from her to see if she would make an effort to be in my life. I realised that the only times she contacted me was when she wanted something. Not once did she ask how I was. Not once did she ask to see me. Not once did she even show any interest in my life.

Now don't get me wrong. I don't mind doing things for anybody. I'm the kind of person who will go out of my way to help everybody I can. I just don't want the kind of friendship with somebody who only ever wants or needs me in her life to do things for her.

As much as this subject may feel like something bad or upsetting to many. Trust me, it's not. I learnt at an early age that a few real friends are miles better than having a lot of fake friends. She was taking me for granted, and now she can't anymore. I will still be in her life, but I won't be classing her as a friend. 

If you have anybody or anything in your life that you've been taking for granted. Please, stop. We are all guilty of it in one way or another. Whether it is a person in your life, or a thing you have. Give it the time of day that it deserves.


  1. I feel that friendships as females are extremely tricky. Keep your head up. I have felt some of the best friendships are going to be forged later in life. When everyone gets a grasp on their interests and the unselfishness of giving more than you get.


  2. Unfortunately there was some that didn't appreciate me, mostly family who just takes advantage.. Thank you for this post
