Our expert says:
A kid once defined "family" as "people who come to dinner, but they aren't friends". Family we don't get to pick, though we can choose whether to waste time or effort on them. Some are great, some aren't. Don't assume that they will always be there to help - some will, some won't, but expecting the ebst from some people is like expecting lightning to be gentle.
There are, as the old sayings go, plenty of "fair-weather friends" - always happy to lend you their umbrella, provided that it isn't raining. And when you actually need something, well, just go on and need it - they are not friends, just hangers on and users.
Look for opportunities to BE a good friend, to people who actuallty deserve your help, a nd you may find more people who understand what it is, and might be there when you need something
