Is There Such Thing as a True Friend?
Someone who was going through a rough time with friendships and who thought I had my stuff together once asked me if there is such thing as a true friend. I honestly didn’t have a proper answer to that because no matter how much faith you have in humanity, in the end nobody’s perfect. After some thought I tried to come up with how I felt you should deal with people. I told her; always forget anyone that doesn’t treat you the way you should be treated. And by not treating you the way you should be treated I don’t mean forgot to text you or call you because those are little things you have to learn to look over. Fighting over stuff like that isn’t worth it because your friends will drop like flies if you do. I’m talking legit backstabbing which I’ve been through many times mostly in school which is why I tried to not get involved with peoples stuff too much. But that’s when you really have to step back and see how much you’re worth it and start to either confront people or distance yourself from them if you feel like they aren’t the kind of people that won’t change even with confronting. But in general don’t be too close to people that you feel don’t seem right. I talk to many people all around but the amount of friends that I can trust with my life can be counted on one hand. It’s really important to not burn too many bridges though, just distance. I’m not saying be fake but there’s nothing wrong with talking and laughing with someone but not telling them every detail of your life. A lot of people may think they know me but they really don’t AT ALL and that’s the way I like it because not too many people have information that can one day come back to haunt me. So the key facts in this paragraph are distance yourself from people who don’t treat you right without burning too many bridges. Always have fun with the people that are around you and ignore the haters. If someone really hates then it’s always good to confront with a stern face and dead eyes. Learn how to laugh everything else off and have a great time. You’re not the only one with this problem I feel the same way you do too. Surround yourself with love and support and show love and support. Respect everyone always. When someone disrespects you, show them even more respect. Because he or she is the person that needs to learn what respect is the most. Always stay classy.
