In the image above you can see two people having a lovely discussion in a relaxed manner.
These guys are so immersed that they didn’t even realize that I am taking their click so closely.
The body language of both is enough to impress us that they are good friends of long-standing.
Notice the slippers of the guy in the side-lying position almost touching the other guy and it looks both of them are comfortable.
Any idea how long their friendship can last?
Why do even thick friends go apart over a while?
It’s very rare to come across friends, who are truly lifelong friends.
Anybody can give a lecture about the value/virtues of friendship as said below.
“Friendship plays a key role in emotional growth and mental health. It boosts your happiness.
Talking to a friend lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of depression.
Hugging, listening, sharing connecting and celebrating life with friends decreases stress.
That is what friends are for. They help you live longer” Unknown
But does anybody care why friendship can go wrong and your best friend can become your worst enemy?
Are you aware of this term?
For this to know you should understand why humans behave the way they behave.
As human being, we always have priorities and relationship is no exception.
In the hierarchy of relationships, initially, parents come, then romantic partners, and children followed by relatives and finally friends.
As you notice friendship is at the bottom of the hierarchy.
Unlike in other relationships, one need not have any commitment in friendship.
Even with commitment, friendship can fail.
99.99% of all friendships fail and 00.01% is an exception.
Why does friendship fail?

What is my experience?
I am having almost zero friends in real life.
In the virtual world…to be frank I thought I had one good WP friend who over time totally ignored me.
Who is at fault?
I may or may not be at fault.
I am not sure, and neither I wish to blame anybody.
What is your experience?
Feel free to share your experience and your thoughts.
Were you betrayed anytime?
Are you hurt because most of your friends are selfish?
“There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth”
