I was single until age 35. I was the dependable friend that could figure things out and help when needed. Then I got maried and had a family. Some of these “friends” seemed to think that placing priorities on the needs of my wife and son was unacceptable because I wasn’t dropping everything to help them whenthey needed it. Of course, as I looked back, these same “friends” never really even tried to reciprocate the help that I gave them over the years and would even have a long string of excuses as to why they couldn’t. These former friends of mine are also Democrats.
If your friends cannot understand that you are busy and have a life that doesn’t include asking “how high?” every time that they say “jump”, then they are not your friends.
