Anyways, as usual.. it's Wednesday and I'm here to deliver my dose of wisdom via my Pinterest page.
And it wouldn't be hump day without me actually opening up to my blog.. (ironic, I know!)
For years, I've had a lot of best friends, and I still do.. but it's different. I've had big groups of friends who I all trusted equally and told my life to, and slowly over the years I saw these groups start to dwindle and get smaller and smaller. The amount of people I thought I could trust grew less and less, and it was all for this reason: some of these friends of mine didn't actually care about what I had to say, they were merely just prying.
I never realized this at first, but when I would tell someone something it would slowly make its rounds, and I never understood how private conversations could be taken so out of context and completely altered. But then I pulled myself away from the situation. I saw what it looked like from the outside and I was mad. How could I be so blind? How could these apparent best friends that I trust so much betray me like this? And then one day it crossed the line..
I learned my lesson: the only people you need in life are your family. I love my friends, don't get me wrong, but I've learned who I say what to, and who I can rely on when I need someone. I've been let down times before, and I've been abandoned when I was at my weakest point, and when I was thousands of miles away from anyone who could actually help, only to be cussed at by my best friends (the ones I could actually trust) for not calling them and telling them what's wrong.
The only people you need in your life may be your family, but you can certainly get a bit farther with some friends on your side. I guess sometimes when I've been let down by some friends, I expect all to do the same. But that's not so true all the time. There are the good ones, the ones you can rely on, the ones you can call at any minute and they'll drop what they're doing if you need them to. Those are the people you should surround yourself with. Those are the ones who actually care what you have to say, and actually care about you. And that's what I'm trying to do.
Have you ever realized you couldn't trust someone you always thought you could?
