When friends seem to let us down:
1. Do away with the bitterness. Realize that being bitter will not help. It's a complete waste of time and energy.
2. Understand "friends". They are humans too - instinctively prone to human weaknesses. Afterall, they have nothing to do with the present situation.
3. Believe in the fact that since friendships are primarily forged in terms of value for value, 'friends' disappearance in our life should make us conclude without rancor that we no longer possess any value to them.
4. That or we're really guilty of making bad friend choices to begin with.
5. But that is life.
Ces't la vie. Ces't la vie. Ces't la vie.
