The sad natur of the worldAlmost everyone will try and stick up for them selvs only.
What most dont know is they also have a freind that will stick up for them too.
When you know someone and you know you can help them if they tell you whats wrong why dont they?
When you need help but you dont want to bring your freinds into it why do you just sit there and do nothing about it?
What will ever fix this because what almost always ends up happening is the one in the middle of it ends up all alone and the freinds feel bad because they couldent help.
What you can do is tell your freinds that you can trust, and make sure your freinds can trust you too.
