I have been talking to people for a while now and one of the things I realized is that many people get hurt by the ones that are very close to them. Not by what those people do.. but what they fail to do. People that I have talked to that have been bullied or insulted and made to feel insecure, their 'friends' were there and they were laughing at the jokes that this other person cracks about them, making them feel insecure. They feel that it is one thing to take that but it is more hurtful to them that you are laughing with the others. Understand the role you play in the lives of others. As their friend they feel equally hurt by the person who made fun of them and by you, for not defending them.
People get hurt by, you not being there when they needed you the most.. and that is a tricky one because how will you know when someone needs you the most. It is not like you can read their mind right. I guess maybe we can solve that by always checking up on them.. you know .. not just to hang out and eat but constantly blowing up their phone with texts checking what's up. Being a continuous reminder that they are not alone.
We all have a role to play in this
