Which is also why Brooke fans don't see the glaring imbalance in the friendship.
It's all about interpretation. And that is why fans of different fanbases are never gonna agree with each other when it comes to certain topics.
I've seen you use this argument a hundred times. As I stated in my previous post, Haley does open up. But if she doesn't open up to Brooke, it seems to be because Brooke is not a person who can give in the friendship, can not set aside her own issues to truly listen and be there for another person.
Why can't Brooke give in the friendship?Because she was never able to look into Haleys head?It's not like Brooke ever kicked Haley off the curb when she needed her.
Brooke will talk about herself/her problems with anyone, true. And Haley is a good listener and good friend who knows better than to try and focus any discussions on herself at this point.
So if I go to my best friend,because I need her, I try and focus any discussions on myself?Interesting.I see it as looking for comfort when I actually need it.
Yes. If Brooke was truly a good, selfless friend, she would know when Haley needs support. Haley shouldn't have to tell her after all these years.
Sorry,but I don't get that.So the mere fact that they've been friends for years should have been reason enough for Brooke to see that Haley had problems,even when Haley barely opened up to her?
How would Brooke know?
Brooke never denied Haley any help or told her to [Censored] it off or something.
When Nathan was kidnapped Brooke did ask Haley how she was doing,because she knew
that Haley had a hard time dealing with all of this.Hell,who wouldn't? Haley told her that everything was fine "considering the cirumstances." She once again didn't open up to Brooke.
Had Brooke known about the kidnapping and hadn't
asked her how she was doing it would've been something different,but that wasn't the case.She knew about it and tried to comfort Haley.
Sometimes you have problems that no one is aware of.Problems that aren't so obvious and in those moments you have to decide for yourself if you wanna open up or not.If you choose to not open up you can't expect from others to be aware of your issues.
Thousands of people commit suicide every day because of their problems and often even their closest friends aren't aware of the issuses their friend has.How often do we hear "I had no idea he/she was feeling that way."If people always knew what is going on with depressed people they would maybe be able to fix this person and then the number of suicides would dicrease,but well...it doesn't work that way.
Even if you are friends with someone for YEARS you can never always tell when this friend needs you.You get to know this person better over the years,yes,but you can't look into this persons head.That's nonsense.
And it also depends on what kind of problems you have to deal with.
One example: People called Brooke a bad friend because they thought she wasn't there for Haley,when her mother died and that Brooke not being there for Haley when it happend, was the reason why Haley went to Quinn instead.Huh?When my mom dies I of course go to my brother first,because he's sitting in the same boat.
Brooke is not the kind of friend that you can trust to open up to and actually get 100% support from in a time of need.
If Brooke wasn't a friend you could trust to open up then why was Haley friends with her?
Out of pity?Or because she had no one else?
No big deal at the end of the day that we don't agree.
