My elder daughter told me she thought a couple of her closer friends would give her birthday presents. They haven't. She had given them very thoughtful and nice presents for their birthday earlier. Well she understand that one should never give expecting return in kind. That's true but I know this goes deeper. She would be tempted to think that she takes them more seriously than they do.
These disappointments are usually needed for our maturation. Of course quite a few people refuse to grow up. Sadly today, and they didn't know for now only, they can because of the wealth buffer.
Well there might be a happier ending this round. They might still be shopping for her presents because they want to give as good as they got. These girls might not have parents as supportive as us. So they need more time.
