A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you just the same.
– Elbert Hubbard
What is friendship??? It’s a question I ponder quite often. What is a good friend and how do you really know if someone will be there for you through thick and thin. Time is the only indicator for a true friendship and one that ends never really began (Publilius Syrus said something like that).
I like to consider myself a good friend (I’m the type of friend who will take their clothes off there back and give to you), but as of yet, I’ve yet to meet a friend that will do the same.
“Why is it in a world when people are always searching for happiness…..are they never satisfied with what they have, especially when it’s something good?”
Back in the day, it didn’t take much to be someone’s friend….now it seems as though the world has gone insane (or maybe it’s not the world…maybe it’s me). The wishy washy personalities, the indecisiveness, the super egos. Oh and not forgetting those fake haters (how could I let that one slip by) are the types of people that seem to make up the world today. These people are unable to make the right decisions and hold on to a good thing, when they have it. Instead they complain and act up, when really they should be enjoying there friendships…. treasuring the gems before them.
Not only am I looking for Mr. Right, my soul mate but a true friend would be a real treasure.
But I do sometimes ask myself “Should I surround myself around fake people (friends) just because I no longer want to be alone???”
I’ve done it and in the end I ended up far more unhappier than being alone….I had filled my life with a lot of unnecessary people (who I knew would never be at my side, in the bad times. But I kept them around me anyway). Back then, I think I feared being alone. Now I’m older & wiser and I realize that there is nothing wrong in being alone as long as you’re happy. So for anyone out waking a mile in my shoes, know that when the time is right, a real friend will be at your side… like a foot print in the sand.
Know yourself, love yourself and never settle for less!!!!!
