As you got through life and its adversities you get to realise what type of friends you’ve got. There are the givers and the takers and those somewhere in between. Does true friendship exist? I am not so sure anymore. There are people for whom I would cross oceans for only to realise they wouldn’t jump puddles for me. Very sad indeed. When I pick friends I expect one who will be there for me in my time of need like I would be. However as you go through life you will realise that some friends are only there for benefits, is that still friendship? You have friends, but sometimes you feel all alone. Simply because they do not care. They only care about what they can get. And as sweet as I am there comes a point where you just have to distance yourself from other people simply because they suck the life out of you. Some come to my place often yet I have never been to theirs, not because I don’t want to but because they find all sorts of excuses for me not to see where they come from. Is that still friendship?
What has ever happened to true friendship? Everything is so fake that sometimes you can’t distinguish between genuine and fake. There are some who are too demanding, ones that are after your money and they won’t even hide the fact. What do you call that?
A word of advice: pick your friends wisely, scrutinise them and if need be start subtracting. In the end quality is far better than quantity. Do not invest in the wrong friendship; life is too short to be with people who only look out for themselves.
