a not-so-good friendship
first we must identify and define this concept called 'friend' - individuals who maintain a positive association or a form of emotional attachment. something draws us like magnets -> a semi-conscious cost/benefit analysis yielding some perceived advantage.

following, a two-way (or multidirectional) friendship (or group) will result from mutually advantageous cooperation.

a dependent friendship results from the loss in benefits that have been attained in the past, or that were believed to have been attained at present - conditioned by expectations. by refusing to adapt to new conditions, ratio of benefits become unevenly distributed - & the 'fairness' mechanism implements an emotional response to instigate chaos, thus social reorganization.

take what is 'there', without expectations - much of your emotional psychodrama can fade to the corners of mind. otherwise - to "dig your own hole", is what you are doing psychologically. [being honest in speech helps one be honest in mind(?)]

valued friends. you are valued because you serve a purpose, in some way you appear to benefit existence. "friendship" is an equal (or unequal) distribution of semi-rational self-interest connecting various individuals.
