As most of us know through experience this is very true. We’ve all had people in our lives who are happy to make themselves available to party with us or join us in carefree pursuits etc. It’s when we reach out during the troubling, worrisome times, that we scrabble around in vain to find them. They don’t want to be involved in providing a sympathetic ear, monetary assistance, physical aid, etc. etc., so distance themselves until our own personal “storm” has passed. Then, and only then, do they take the time to seek us out in order to reconnect and get the party started up again. If we have any sense at all we’ll have noticed their absence and their retreat into the background and, you know what, wouldn’t it make sense and feel good just to leave them there?
