Learning this the hard way ... But it has to be done ... If you haven't benefited me yet you are treating me less than I think I deserve then you don't deserve my friendship . I don't expect much from a friend ... Perhaps simply loyalty and respect .
Being a slave to material wants leads to diminished fulfillment in life- my two cents, but I'm happy on the farm - cows don't make me feel inferior, they only show the need for food and love- I understand that so well.
