Basically back in high school we were good friends until he dropped out and got his GED to get married to a crazy bitch with 3 kids. We still kept in touch and once he got a divorce from the bitch and lived with a few different people until he moved back with his parents we started hanging out more often.(My college was near so I stayed in the area) Well over the past few years he has just appeared to crash. He has not had a job in over 2 years, threatens to kill himself/act crazy to get disability, has another gf/fiance with a kid(not his) she lives at his parents house with him and her kid lives with her parents, and just overall just is a huge disappointment. He is much better than this. He always claims he is going to do this or that, go to college, get a job, but its just nothing but talk. He is only 22 and he is single handedly sabotaged his life. I imagine he just doesn't have many friends anymore because he rarely if ever introduces me to anyone and tends to call all the damn time. I understand being there for a friend when he is down but this is just getting sad. He will pawn off his shit off at pawnshops then buy it back whenever he gets his check.(the other day he was about to lose some shit and needed $400 and then the next week he shows up with a ring that he was going to give his gf) I've tried talking to him about this shit but I always get the same shit "its hard", "i'm trying" but is just too fucking lazy to get anything done. At this point and time I'm just sick of it all. I have a different life and a different direction. When we hang out and just see him continuing to let himself go and brings up the handouts he gets from the government it just makes me sick to my stomach. Just not the type of caliber of person I will normally associate myself with. Is it wrong for me to want to cut ties with him? Its like what you always hear "you can judge a person by the company they keep". For me to stand back and look. I just ask myself why? All the hard working people out there and I are the ones who pay for him to sit on his ass and buy WII's, beer and other useless shit.
