Sorry Elena ... but i liked the content so much i just had to do a complete rewrite. Even if it won't help you get a true friend, perhaps it will help you with your English :-))
As far as I am concerned there is no such thing as a real friend. For sure, at first you communicate empathetically, but it seems that when you really need help, these 'friends' simply let you down. Well of course they offer you their help ... but usually after you have solved your problem and then their so called help comes in the form of pity! ... I have a lot of very good acquaintances ... but none of which I can call a true friend. And that suits me just fine!
A profound wisdom is evident in your essay Elena.
With your permission, let me clean up the grammar just a bit, and then discuss this wonderful insight that you share.
About the friend
To my mind there aren't real friends.
You may communicate very WELL while your interests are different;
but when you need in help, there aren't friends."
"Though... No, you'll get your friend's help; but when you achieve success, that's the end of the friendship. That's all. That will be the end of friendship."
"People like pitying friends, but they may not be happy for them. I think that you know people first of all when you are happy. You are lucky if your friend hasn't got an envy. As for me I have many very good and familiar acquaintances, but I haven't any real or true friends, And it suits me."
Awesome human insight Elena. Very deep thought and I would indicate that Ego-Centrism is the general English term for the subject that you address here.
This is wonderful. You could write more on this in the future I am sure.
This is powerful exploration of human psychology and Self-Centeredness.
It is most commendable!
