People take close relationships for granted. Such relationships are parents or close friends (the kind of friends whom you share most of your secrets to)
People take parents, close friends for granted. They often make less effort to “please” / care for / think about them, as compared to new friends they’re making in the street.
Have you ever canceled a dinner with your closed friend for a meeting with a newly met (but potentially beneficial) one?
Or have you ever told your parents you’d be back home later than you promised them, just to hang out a little more with friends around?
