My husband mentioned one of his friends, saying he never felt worthy of the man’s friendship. I was surprised. I asked him to elaborate and he did.
He named various people he knows and said he felt they meant more to him then he meant to them. He gave a few examples and reiterated he felt there was an imbalance in this one relationship and it had been this way for decades.
I know the man and would argue this is not the case. I think it’s a balanced relationship but it’s pointless to say so because my husband feels how he does and that’s it.
Are you familiar with anything like this? Are their people in your life where they mean more to you then you do to them or vice versa? What do you think causes this?
