I am posting this because I have seen a lot of hurt feelings in chat lately and i am not one to verbalize to all but I personally feel there is one person who is trying so hard to take a friend of mine away from me. DAKOTASUZ Everyone Is Not Your Friend
I’m such a fool. For years and years, I’ve seen the best in people and for years and years I’ve been fooled. Tricked. Bamboozled I tell ya! You know what? I know I’m not the only one that has been hoodwinked by people. What have I been deceived by for so long? Easy.
EVERYONE IS NOT YOUR FRIEND!!!
I am sorry to say it to everyone, but it needs to be heard. Everyone isn’t your friend. People come and go in your life and just because your friend is standing next to you doesn’t mean they’ll stand up with you. Many of our friends are quick to stand by our side, but their true colors come to fruition when you’re gone and someone else talks down about you. These are the same people that will look you straight in the face and smile all day long with you.
True situations will expose the real people in your lives. When your down or depressed in life you can see who’s still with you. No matter the situation. Your ride or die. The people that will go to Tijuana to bail you out of jail, the people who will sit and listen as you vent about your personal or work life, even those that look you straight in the face after a screw up and say, “you sure messed up, but I got you.” It’s a true rarity in this world. Life is a Hot Wheels racetrack, with pit stops, where friends come and go. A few will stay for a while, some of them will leave and come back after all the twist and turns, others are there just to check the ride out and will jump out when they see the fire on the tracks. Honestly some of these people shouldn’t even be on the ride, but due to low self esteem or some other mental breakdown in your life, you let anyone and everyone on.
People pretend very well. Society celebrates celebrity actors daily, but some of those same people praising actors are amazing thespians. To be able to laugh, smile, hug you, and be the one next to you but not actually being with you or for you. That is an amazing feat and they should go to Hollywood or Broadway, maybe karma will find them then.
Sometimes the closest people to you are silently competing with you. These best friends we have, don’t really want what is best for you. Only if it’s best for them. It’s immensely hard to see. I want to be positive and see the best in people, but I don’t think it’s always possible unfortunately. Just because someone grew up with you doesn’t mean they want to see you grow. Yes, this unfortunately could include your family.
Stop being loyal to the wrong people. You cannot control someone’s loyalty. No matter how good you are to them, doesn’t mean they’re going to treat you the same. No matter how much they mean to you doesn’t mean they value you the same. Sometimes the people you love the most turn out to be the people you can trust the least. Fake people will always give you reasons to cut them off. With all this negativity, what’s the point of having people around you that are not there for you.
I’m always looking for the why in these situations. So why? Loyalty? Why are you loyal to those that don’t believe in you? Never let your sense of loyalty enslave you. Be loyal to those that bring your life peace and happiness, not problems. Be loyal to someone who brings you hopes and dreams not drama and gossip. Be loyal to someone who’s going to stand up for you when you aren’t even there to stand up for yourself.
Time to cut the ties that have bound you from a life of happiness. The circle of friends you thought you had, has been your cage for too long. Time to break free. The best way to go forward in life is not to add to it, but to subtract from it sometimes. It all starts with you. It all starts with loving yourself and loving who you are. It’s always easier sad than done, but it can’t be done if you don’t start. You are loved and there are people who cherish your friendship, you just have to be open to them.
