I am sitting here with some time to reconstruct and evaluate my pondering thoughts.
Everyone wants to be a “Friend”.
At work, they make you speak. If you don’t speak, people sense that you are being antisocial.
At church, everyone wants to speak and befriend you and your children by shaking your hand, pinching the kids’ cheeks and telling you just in case you need anything, feel free to ask…but you will be talked about if you do.
At school, it’s all about popularity and seeing how many numbers you can get. But that same homie that so annoyingly reminds you over and over BFF, gave you the ugliest smirk because your game was a lil off last night.
On Facebook, everyone sends you a “friend request” so that they may look at your pics and family and start unnecessary drama as though this world is not drama-filled enough.
So far, I have lost a nice 2 handfuls of friends thru a process of trying to better myself. So, then I ask myself, what is a friend?
The Creator…. that’s all I can think of…
If you are not a spiritual person, then I suggest you try it out. When it is all said and done, never expect so much from a “friend”. Different people will come into your life for so many different reasons, but just the mere fact that you met someone and have shared some of the same interest doesn’t make that person your soulmate or your BFF. You must understand that no matter how many parties you attend with your friends, do not and I repeat do not expect them to have your back when you face a serious problem. You should only rely on the direction and comfort of yourself and your spiritual connection with the Highest.
