There are some people that live just down the street from me. I've lived here almost 5 years and they have been my friends for most of those. Just recently I've stopped going down to their house to visit. Not because I don't like them, but because there are alot of people living in the house at the moment and alot of animals. I am not one that likes all of that, so I prefer to stay at my house. Since I haven't gone over to visit them in a bit they've decided that I don't like them. This is not true. I still like them and would like to be friends, but I feel like I am putting forth the all the effort in this friendship. For awhile it's gotten to where the only time these people would call me would be because they wanted something from me. Like to borrow eggs, tools (which I don't lend), or even borrow my car. I almost feel like since people assume I have more money than them that they are entitled to it. Let me clue in those people. I DON"T have tons of money. I have a husband that works his butt off to give us some better things.
I have to guess that the people down the street just don't want to be my friend if they don't even want to put forth the effort to even walk down to my house, or call me to have a conversation. I hope that I am not wrong, but I have carried friendships before, and I just don't have the time to do that anymore.
