236 - Relying on someone and they don't pull through


Have you ever asked someone to do you a favor, promise they will be there to lend you a helping hand, and then have them retract their hand, and along with it, their invested interest in your well-being? It's hard enough that the circumstances have brought us into difficult predicaments, but it's worse to have the light shining on us be suddenly eclipsed by a person's resignation of his/her's consideration, understanding and cooperation. It's like saying, "You were worth it at one point, but now, not so much."

I was put in this situation a couple of days ago. I asked for aid in my life, and the person abandoned me. If he couldn't have possibly performed the favor, mightn't it be easier if he had just said so in the first place?

It's a slap in the face if you ask me. I thought we were family... I thought we were friends. But I guess the feeling's not mutual.

Don't you hate it when you depend on another person's help, only to find out that it hurts you even more in the end?

It'll defintely hurt especially if u had put all your trust on him/her, only to find that he/she left u on your own. It's a feeling that no one would like to have...

Hi Michael!

I am so glad you stopped by! Incidentally, I've met the most interesting bloggers this way!

Your blogs are certainly thought-provoking. I am sure I will read each & every post of yours at leisure. Right now I have put you on my bloglist.

Keep writing!

I was introduced to this at an early age. I had a bully for a big brother.

I know who I can and cannot trust. And I don't ask favors of those people I don't trust because I know they'll do exactly this.

Oh mister....
That just sounds horrible.
I vote that you should slap that person silly, or you mei mei will slap that person shitless for making you feel like that.

:D

I read the article on the dig.com. I’d like to buy this Casablanca 1913. Many of the brides-to-be around me feel it difficult to make proper decisions on buying Casablanca 1978. They are sure to be happy if they can be guided by your article.
