fiction challenge: Hardship

One of the hardships I’ve overcome is trying to make people care about me. I used to try to make my friends happy and make it so they like to hang out with me. Over time I’ve realized that they prioritize work and their other friends over me. It took a long time for me to realize that I don’t need friends like them and I stopped trying to make them happy. Some days it’s hard to remember this because I get lonely and want to be around people. I’ve come to learn that if someone wanted to be around me they would make time for me instead of an excuse. I’ve had a lot of people in my life that talk to me about their problems but then when it comes time to talk to them about mine they couldn't care less. I realized I wanted people in my life who were there for me as much as I am for them.
