Default Give and take in friendships

Why do most people in friendships only ever take and if they are needed by someone it's a case of "no can do, not going to even try to help you"?

I notice that about people too. I guess human beings are selfish. Being selfish may be a part of human nature. I hate giving my "all" in a friendship when the other person isn't putting any effort into putting their "all" in.

I have thought much the same thing for a very long time. It feels like nobody in the world cares :'(

It seems like they only do that to people like us. Low self-esteem and/or poor social status makes us prime targets for opportunists.

I've always been viewed as disposable by "friends" or acquaintances. I put in 90% of the effort and get nothing in return. They just take and take. But they're usually willing to drop everything in a heartbeat for their more popular/attractive friends.
