I have a lot of friends in my life, some close, some not so close; some old and some new. However, sometimes, I feel like people don't respect each other, which is very upsetting, because people need respect, not matter what kind of relationship they are in.
Honestly, I hate it when a friend doesn't respect your decisions. After all, it's your life. It's up to you how you spend it. However, if you're going to do something dangerous, it's advisable for that action to be talked out of. But, if a friend disagrees with your decision to do something like read a book or do something that you feel like is right for you, then you have a probelm.
I also hate hypocrites. Let's say you have a problem about something, such as a boy or a girl, which is common in adolescent teenagers. Friends listen to each others' probelms and offer decent advice, to the best of their ability. However, it goes both ways. If your friend isn't showing you the same respect as you when it comes to that sort of thing, then maybe it's not good. Just sayin'.
All in all, friendships are something good. However, sometimes, people can not show you respect the way you show them, and sometimes, it's upsetting.
