Sorry that was my assumption and it was built on what you have said. I dont really feel like going back to your original post but it went along the lines of making money and dealing with people afterward. Sorry that is what I took from it and my reasons were highlighted originally.
is not about being sorry is about seeing the truth. what’s the point of apologizing if you don’t know the whole story. that does not change the facts.
i don’t give up cus i keep the facts engraved (main point) in my head. you feel you had something to go against me but you “don’t really feel like going back” to what i said.
you want to see something else that i see wrong here? is that you feel like you know me by just reading one of my posts. it’s all good though. i understand that.
Correct, I dont pay your bills. As I said, I am just going off how you have come across to me and most other people in this thread judging by their responses.
i didn’t come across to you about anything, you CAME to me. there is a difference. you felt like you knew the whole me by this/these post/s here. that is by just looking at the glass half empty.
I dont feel obligated to do anything, it is a friendship. I cant even explain this because I dont think about it when I do something for a mate, or if he does something for me. It is just how it goes down. I get enjoyment from helping a mate. I like the fact that I have someone which can help me in return. I enjoy my friends company, and will just hang out with them for the fun of it.
dude, if you cannot explain this with this post alone. you cannot tell me “I don’t feel obligated to do anything, it is a friendship.” when you don't understand it. (or maybe you do, i just don't see it). also, you make it seem like being “obligated” is a bad thing, point blank. if someone helps you, don’t tell me that you don’t feel obligated to “pay them” back? it is normal. the thing is that one should take notice in this cus other people know this can/will take advantage of this and use it for their benefit.
Yep we have had huge arguments. Try being close to anyone and not having an argument. It will happen, does it take away from a friendship no, people make mistakes, people have different views. People have annoying habits. Does that take anything away from a relationship of any type. No. We are all different, we will always have differences.
yeah, but lets break arguments into percentage. is it 50% and 50% or is it 10% and 90%. <-- the latter represents not healthy relationships, which is the majority. plus, are those arguments justifiable or are they provoked out of stupid things. think "MTV jack as*."
I have known this guy for 15 years, I have been good friends with him for a couple of years and a lot closer since I got my sa in order. I spend a heap of time with him, his partner and his family. Tell me, why would I take the view that he will drop me the second I leave?
ok, knowing this guy for 15 years does not mean 50/50. i have known my dad ever since i was born and i’m the one ending up getting the short end of the stick. i know my brothers since i was born and i end up getting the short end of the stick cus my “dad” brainwashed them. also, i have known people who use to follow me like flies, but they only did that cus they “admired” me. what about you? if you are happy in this 15 year relationship than i understand. but if you want me to understand that by what i posted in the beginning in my drunken state does not have any truth to success, you haven’t convinced me. not JUST by telling me that you knwo this guy for 15 years, that is.
I deal with internal support, dealing with the same people day in day out. I know them on a personal level too. I know what they offer the company and the vast knowledge they have over me. I treat everyone the same from board members down. There is no customer is always right. If I know I am right I will tell them. they are coming to me for help, they want my advice, they listen.
oh ok, this is more of a support to people that you work with. i see. but it is not the same as support to society, which was my main point.
No, you were saying that money is everything. I am saying it isnt. I am saying earn what you need or what you are capable of, you dont need to be a millionaire to be happy. And yes I would rather be happy then have money. Hence why I have gone from wanting money, cars, bikes and houses to owning next to nothing and moving overseas. So me giving up all that and a stable decent job is a defense? I am sorry but there is more out there for me to experience and I am going looking for it. Sure I am not making a 'smart' move but it is my move and it is something which will provide a lot more then money.
i was not just speaking about money cus i said a lot of things. i will ignore that though.
i will tell you this, if it’s not about money, why do you work? why is it so hard to understand that money plays a big role in happiness? i’m not saying to just live for the money but just understand that “big money” brings a lot of pleasure which brings a lot of happiness. also, learn that money is not really that hard to obtain, if you have the know how that is. (which im working on).
still, money is not the devil.
What I have isnt rare, you just have to be open to it and give a little.
All I am saying is that telling op all this negative stuff about friends and people and how they are out to use you and waste your time is not going to help him. Telling him to go make millions is great, but it is all the other stuff about people just leaching off you. That is not true, there are plenty of people in this world which have not motives. They are genuine. I am sorry you havent seen this yet but I hope you do.
i still will say that if what you speak is true, is it rare. i have never met anyone otherwise. i’m just taking your word for it. though it is not the whole story... 100%.
the only way i will listen to you is if you are mainly happy with your “friends”. you haven’t convinced me otherwise.
i can tell you about everyone that i know now that they all have friendship problems. the thing is that, even though they all have problems, one ALWAYS ends up at top (where i want to be). i’m not about to explain that though.
don’t feel "obligated" to type back to me though. i see the whole picture dude.
