Fairweather Friends...Taking A Stand!

Fairweather Friends have got to rank up on my "Most Despised in the World List" around about No.1 along with smokers...or perhaps they might even knock smokers off the top notch since they are actually knowingly amoral as well...

Anyway my feeling is this- if you haven't heard from your fairweather friend in 1-2 years at times when they knew you were in need after they so boldly leaned on you when they were going through a rough patch, well what right do they have to reconnect with you just because it suits them?

Basically, the way I see it is, if we had no contact for a year or more (for no fair reason), then you aren't worth me investing my time in. After all people only have so much time and energy and I'd rather be investing that in others rather than attempting to rekindle ashes that have long gone cold just because the timing suits you!

Hmm, this is gonna seem icy but I'm sick of being screwed over - so I'm taking a stand! I'm not even going to inconvenience myself with awkwardness by even bothering to be polite. In my books Fairweather Friends are so lowly they don't even deserve common courtesy....

Hmm so much for being Zen- that's about the only time you can unleash the typical unforgiving Scorpio stereotype out of me- it's just recurred way too many times for me to be able to turn a blind eye to and always the same selfish people! I am always there for my friends no matter what so I only have room in my life for the few people who can treat me with the same decency and respect.

The Scorpion Lady has spoken :)

I am TOTALLY with you.

I really hate feeling used. And that's what fair-weather friends do.
