Everyone is self-serving to a degree, but to blatantly rip off your friends or hurt their feelings? I’m sorry, I can’t accept that. I’ve been told numerous times that I can be rather intense when it comes to my relationships with people. I can be brutally vocal and unforgiving towards certain individuals I’ve deemed unworthy. But, I’m not a maniac. I’m not the paragon of morality. All I’m asking for is just people to be considerate and have some semblance of genuineness. You don’t have to be Mother Theresa.
If it’s business, then keep it strictly business. Don’t act like I’m your lifelong’s answer to a great friendship than bite me in the fucking ass or guilt trip me into submission to achieve your stupid goals. Don’t make snide or insensitive remarks about me then laugh it off like it’s just a funny joke when it’s just you trying to pacify your own insecurities. Yeah, I have self deprecating humour, but NOT THAT MUCH. Don’t try to comfort me as if you really know me when it’s just you getting off in pretending to be my good friend.
Is it so hard? Life is too short. Fuck courtesy, just get rid of the company of people who get you down. There’s too little time to entertain these self-serving egomaniacs.
