You know, sometimes I hate fall. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall for the weather starting to feel cold( if you lived in Florida, you get me), raining seasons, and bugs and animals are slowly going to sleep for wintertime. More importantly, HALLOWEEN!! However, I’m not talking about the season.
Have you felt like that your friends are not as you thought were, long ago? or like after time, you slowly see some red flag that you never see before? I have. I’m known to be loyal to my friends, but it’s hard to be faithful to someone with that lack of loyalty, or even someone is “toxic.” Now, I’m one of those kinds of friends that accept them for who that are, flaws and all. There’s are times that I want to help them out and spend time with them, but there are also times that I want to keep my distance from them, like if they are asking for money and never give back or co-sign something that might affect your credit. Here’s my story about me and my friend, let’s called her Amber.
“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend wound your mind.”-Buddha
Amber and I had been friends since the beginning of our high school years, ten years ago. Things were good back then; however, our friendship is slowly parting ways when we got older and after high school. Lately, I’m starting to see Amber of what she is. Amber is a lying, manipulated drama seeker. She made anyone and herself like she’s all that, but she is not, and every time, they go out. When any guy is starting to have some interested in me, and things were getting good between us until when I came back from the bar or bathroom, they seemed to be avoiding me like the plague afterward. There were no proofs about what happened between these breaks, but I know that those guys went alone with HER. I believe that Amber was talking s*ht about me, but as I said, there was no evidence of what happened. So, I decided that Amber hasn’t been a good friend, even back when I considered her as my best friend in the past. Nowadays, we don’t talk as much anymore or hang out like we used to because I don’t need someone like her in my life. Just keep my distance from her, and I don’t mind at all. Sometimes I wonder how in the world I became friends with that kind of person, but it has done in the past. We thought they were good friends and then, we slowly see them for what they are that are no good at all. However, I still have some terrific friends that I can trust with my life, and I will continue to make some new friends that will might in my life or not. It’s my choice.
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.-Eleanor Roosevelt
