I know there are a lot of knowledgeable people on these forums, so I need some advice! Why do those who you care about most tend to hurt you the most? As for family, they've always had my back through thick and thin. But friends on the other hand... I have a couple friends who I really care about because I am a caring person. But time after time, they keep hurting me with their actions and back-stabbing, and time after time, I forgive them. I know within a year I'll be off to bigger and better places, and high school is so temporary..but I would like some wisdom on friends for the remainder of high school. I have 6 months left, and I don't want to be down in the dumps because my friends are not true friends. I want to make my senior year memorable and fun, but with so much drama it seems impossible. Its commonly said that you'll only keep in contact with a few friends in highschool, and I know that is true. Should I let go of these friends or be the light in their life, the one who is always there for them? What is your definition of friendship?
