This is one of my favorite DP poems. I remember my first broken heart and
that it took me a lot longer than I thought to get over it (actually I'm
still quite bitter about that..grr).
I think she's not talking about actual friends so much as general cliche's,
like "time heals all wounds" etc. You feel betrayed when it turns out to be
so much harder than you always thought and personally I felt like, damn it,
someone should have warned me about love being so very shitty sometimes!
