The people who keep dumping on you do it because it is their habit and because they are not moved by friendship or are unable of relating. Time spent waiting for them to change their approach or to “grow up” is time wasted.
When you raise a child, you learn how long it takes to mature a mind, how many incentives and repetitions a child needs to integrate a new behaviour.
The job of raising adults – some of them older than yourself – may be the most depressing experiment, or responsibility, you can agree to. Do it only when you must, when the urge comes from within, and keep your expectations extremely low. Lower than a parent would.
You are better off with real friendships, people who are trying to understand you, who enjoy being supportive, and those who actually think of ways to put a smile on your face.
