Well everyone here’s what my therapist said: He said, basically, that I should lower the status of my good friend because my good friend doesn’t value me as much as I value him. He said that because I value him more than he values me there’s an unbalance in our friendship. I consider my good friend to be my best friend but my therapist said that I shouldn’t place that status on him because my good friend obviously can’t meet those standards for me.
My good friend told me himself that I’m third on his list of best friends. He apparently has three real close friends, maybe more. If he has more best friends then I’m unaware of them. I know he has other friends but not bestest best friends. When he first told me that I was third on this list of his I was initially disappointed because I feel like I should mean much more to him. It would appear that I don’t though. However, I then started to think that I should be grateful to even be on his list…then my therapist went and told me what he told me today.
What do you guys think? I mean finding new friends is not my forte, it’s basically an impossible dream. So, that being said what exactly would you do?
