yeah, I'm entering a pretty bitter period in my life-- it starts with work, and I'm able to contain it there, but then it starts to spread to the rest of my life. I've never been able to figure out the cause, as I'm pretty good at keeping my work life and my personal life seperate-- there's some over lap with people I interact with which I also interact with at work.
I know that part of it is that I've got people who say that they're my friends, but I never actually hang out with them. Those aren't friends, those are people I know. They tell me that they're busy-- but no one's busy 24/7. I'm tired of getting the short end of the stick, and its getting to the point where I begin cutting off the people in my life who take but never give. I can only give so much before I need to be refilled. It isn't fair to the people with whom I have an equal give and take relationship, because it will begin to affect how I treat them as well.
