I thought I was a best friend for my friends . But the result shows I am a pretty good friend but not reliable in real emergency. I need to try hard to be a good fri.

I think I'm a pretty good friend. But my biggest problem is that, I can never, ever find a good friend for myself. And even if I do, they just simply leave me for some reason. And some of my closest friends are busy talking to their 'new' friends. But I think I can't just change myself for the sake of friendship, can I?

By the way, about your big problem, I think your friends will not simply leave you without reasons. As you're such a charming person, they may sometimes feel unappreciated by your unconscious actions, such as secretiveness and neglecting. How about imaging yourself in your close friend's shoes sometimes??

Hi Elsa007!
I have considered the point in your comment, and as far as I know, I'm a bad person for secrets. There's nothing I just can't keep inside me. I always share it with my close friends. And since I have just three close friends, I don't think I neglect them. I talk with them equally. In fact, it's them who neglect me. I feel lonely for this very reason at all times. I think the reason friends don't last with me long is because I'm a bit crazy :))))
And unpopular... :(((
And for the shoes, I don't think anyone can have dirtier shoes than mine :b!!! I play a lot after school!!

Hi catastrophe!
Ha ha, your shoes are dirty with mud? Oh no, my shoes are not so dirty but worn out.......!
Would you like to try on? :)))

By the way, it seems that you easily get paranoid??
Be confident being yourself! You're charming and benevolent, which will never let people look away from you. :)) I don't actually think your are a bit crazy, but your friends may be...? :)))

Ha, worn out? Well, I change my shoes every three months! And... Nope, I don't think I'm paranoid. And no, I really am a bit crazy, you know. I sometimes climb on my school benches! And even though you think I'm charming, it's true that I'm unpopular. I don't show off, you see. That's why I'm so. And in my class, well, friends are with you only when you're popular... :(((

Okay, if you think so, you're righ, maybe you know yourself better than other people. But remember, what you feel about yourself is not always the same from what other people think of you. And "unpoular" to whom? If you want to be popular to many and unspecified people, you'll need to be fake and play down to your viewers meaningless to you. Is that what you want?
Me, I'm not popular, some people harasse me. But I'm happy with me being true to be myself and unique! By the way, do you have a sincere friend, catastrophe? :))

What I mean by unpopular is that, my talents go unidentified because of partiality. The showoffs are given much more importance than us. Yeah, there are many more like me, waiting for their talents to be revealed. But as I brood over your comment, I think popularity isn't my problem. I'm popular enough to shine like stars.
My problem is that I look for the good and bad of a person a lot. And my friends always take me for granted. For example, my friend and I have the same ambition. And she seemed quite well for me, a good friend and a tough competitor. But she insults me a lot, to shine over me. I don't approve it.
And no, I don't have any sincere friends. I just hope I get one. What about you Elsa?

Hi catastrophe, thanks for your comment. I fully understand what you say :) You know, the very first story of J.K.Rowling always encourages me. And happy to know that you're popular eough to shine like a diamond! How cool! :)))
However, it's a pity that I can hardly imagine your problem. A frined who insluts you a lot???
I don't have such a "friend", I mean I don't approve such a person as my "friend". You know, come to youself, the person whom you wanted to be friends might be your illusion whom you were longing for when you were not true to be yourself.....
In fact, it's hard to imagine a friend who beats yourself over the head with insluts...
Sounds like a negative relationship. Oh dear, your mum will feel sad to hear that.

To be honest, I have some bitter experiences. It's hard to know if someone is good for me or not at a first glance. Usually, I easily believe a person good, but as time goes on, I sometimes felt put-upon and get disappointed at ME not the "friend" once I thought.
Let it go; Going my way! ;)
Last but not least, I think I have a sincere friend. So far, so good, I believe so.....!

Yup, actually, my role model is JK Rowling! You know what, she was very depressed before writing Harry Potter! Think about it!
And I think even I don't want to consider her a friend. But I like her, you know. She is so positive, and what she is doing is just to gain popularity. A friend is a person who corrects your mistakes. I am a good friend, and I will try to turn her back into what she was.
And thanks for your motivational message!

Aha ha... Interesting comment, catastrophe!
You're never, ever close to a catastrophe! :D
I do wish to find the reasons with you together! ;))
For the meantime, I hope you'll find peace in the beautiful sonnet (18) of Shakespear!

Thank you, Elsa007!
You might think so, but when I'm angry, I'm a actually cause a lot more damage than a catastrophe!;)
But the good news is that, I hardly get angry! Anyways, I decided to use that name just because I was reading this book called 'Oswald and the end of the world.' It's about a catastrophe on Earth. I loved it, hence the name! And thanks for the recommendation!

Ha ha... I only get angry when someone accuses me for something I haven't done. Or when someone underestimates me... And you seem to be quite wise, Elsa007! I bet you read a lot, right??

I’m a good friend only with the person that are good. When my best friend has a problem I try to do all for help him and he helps me when I have a problem. But I don’t sure if I help other person that disgusting me when he has a problem because I’m a proud person. In conclusion I don’t know if I’m a good or bad friend this only knows my best friend.

How do we know a good friend?
It's simple.
A good friend knows not to do something that your friend doesn't like.
It's easy to know your friends' needs, but a good friend ought to know beyond such a common practice, which makes a special!

Nowadays a lot of people communicate w/ each orher on the Internet. The more a person shows off or shares pics with "friends", the more the other friend who didn't share the moment feel isolated. It's becoming hard to find real 'friendship' on the Internet where people have to be all things to all people, isn't it!?

Yeah, I agree. I do't have an account in FB, Twitter and stuff, because my relatives think it's not quite safe. But when my classmates talk about the things they shared between themselves, I feel quite isolated. And they do that most of the time. So I'm quite isolated. But I'm not sad, because I know my family knows what's right for me. So, chins up!!!

I am a good friend with my classmates, but neither is it that I like to help them in everything because in the future they could depend a lot on me.
