There is a larger number of people who have hit hard times and are having to deal with the effects of their life turning out for the worse. The hard times that come to them are accompanied by a lot of heartbreaking effects. Among the effects that people are faced with when they are hit with something that causes them to struggle is that some of the people that they have relied on for their comfort and their friendships tend to walk away. This is one of the true tests of friendships. People that are there for someone through all phases of his life is going to be the one who benefits the most.
One of the unfortunate things about people walking out is that this is one of the most heart wrenching things that one would have to go through in their lives as they hit a rough patch. This is also not uncommon for people. There are plenty of stories of people who have had a lot of friends only to find out that the ones they thought were their friends are often the first ones to walk away when things go bad for them. There are a lot of reasons for this.
There are tons of these types of stories that are told in the book called The Greyhound Diaries written by Doug Levitt.
