Actually it is!!!
Don't get me wrong, not all of my friends are like this. But really, some people want you to join them on the misery train, or some like to be better than you. They may not admit it, but it's true.
I'm going through a situation now, where i'm being given advice - however - their POV is showing the rift in their life.
Just an interesting observation, and they aren't any less "friends" - it's just an understanding of them as people.
