- Friendship paradox 點解?
- We all once have friends drifted apart
- Friendship disillusionment 的症狀
The friendship paradox is the phenomenon first observed by the sociologist Scott L. Feld in 1991 that on average, an individual’s friends have more friends than that individual. It can be explained as a form of sampling bias in which people with more friends are more likely to be in one’s own friend group. In other words, one is less likely to be friends with someone who has very few friends. In contradiction to this, most people believe that they have more friends than their friends have. Wiki link.
This phenomenon is often referred to as “friendship disillusionment” or “friendship betrayal.” It can be hurtful and disappointing to learn that someone you thought was a close friend doesn’t view the relationship in the same way. This can lead to feelings of sadness, anger, and confusion, and can be difficult to navigate. However, it’s important to remember that not all friendships are meant to last forever, and it’s okay to let go of relationships that no longer serve you or make you happy. It’s also a good idea to reflect on what you can learn from this experience and how you can improve your future friendships.
Friendship disillusionment refers to the feeling of disappointment or disillusionment that can occur when one realizes that a friendship is not what it appeared to be, or when a friend’s actions or behavior are inconsistent with one’s expectations or understanding of the friendship. This can happen when a friend’s words or actions betray the trust and intimacy that one thought was present in the friendship. It can also occur when a friend fails to live up to expectations or when a friend’s priorities and values diverge from one’s own. The feeling of friendship disillusionment can be painful and can lead to feelings of sadness, anger, and confusion. It’s important to remember that all friendships go through ups and downs, and that it’s possible to work through challenges and heal the relationship, if both parties are willing.
1. Here are some signs that you may be experiencing friendship disillusionment:
Communication breakdown: You may notice that your friend is no longer responding to your messages or calls, or that your conversations are strained and lacking the warmth and intimacy that was once…
2. Lack of support: Your friend may no longer offer emotional or practical support when you need it, or may ignore your feelings and concerns.
3. Distance: Your friend may be spending less time with you or may seem distant and uninterested in maintaining the friendship.
4. Betrayal: Your friend may have broken your trust by lying, cheating, or engaging in behavior that goes against your values.
5. Disagreements: You may be having more frequent or intense disagreements with your friend, or may find that you no longer see eye-to-eye on important issues.
6. Different priorities: Your friend may have different priorities or goals that take up more of their time and attention, and may not have time for your friendship.
7. Unresolved conflicts: Your friend may be unwilling or unable to resolve conflicts or address issues in the friendship, leaving you feeling frustrated and unheard.
If you are experiencing these signs, it’s important to have an open and honest conversation with your friend about your feelings and concerns. However, if the friendship cannot be salvaged, it’s okay to let it go and focus on building relationships that bring you happiness and fulfillment.
