Friendship, when two people form a bond, they go through life in good and bad. All friends like all relationships have their highs and lows, and points where neither will agree with one another. I understand that, you can’t agree with everyone on every little thing and that’s just how life is.

In my stress management class our professor told us to write, so here I am writing to express myself. Why do some people pretend to be someone they are not? You are someone’s friend, or you’re not. A friend wont twist your words, a friend wont create you drama, a friend stands by you through good and bad. Sure you may not like everything they say, but there is such thing as going too far.

Going as far as creating you drama (goodness not even to your face but through text messaging!) just crosses a line. Like I always say, if people really want to tell me something important why, why, why must people always hide behind technology? Is it so hard to be honest to people to their face? Shall we blame technology or shall we just call it what it is, cowardice.

If there’s one thing I dislike is people invading my privacy, if I invite you in on certain things its because I trust you (and people wonder why I have trust issues…) and I always make myself clear as to how far I’m willing to let people in. When they start to bring stuff up that quite frankly is nothing of their business, it does bother me. I’m not doing that to their lives, so why must they insist on invading mine? I’m friendly, I’ll be your handkerchief of tears but once you begin to cross the lines of distrust, dishonesty, and disrespect I will stand up and speak up. This is real life, its not high school where you can gossip and create drama it doesn’t make you look “cool” it shows your true colors. I value honesty, especially if its harsh or difficult for others to say, it shows they have courage to stand up. But when you try to add lies, deceit, bring up the past, and practically show interest in my failing in life that’s not honesty that’s just hypocrisy.

If you don’t know how I feel, don’t pretend you do nor go around saying how you think I feel. I’m tired of gossip, seriously like you have no idea. I’m tired of people saying one thing and wishing your every step is the next into the realm of failure. With friends like these, who needs enemies? I respect those who tell me they don’t like me because they are being honest. Its time to let go of people, surround myself of good-hearted people, by real friends not the so called “friends” that run away when you hit rock bottom or wish you the worst and pretend to smile as if nothing ever happened. I don’t need friends like these, I don’t want friends like these, its time to move on because life keeps going and there’s no time to waste.

Smile, they may be few but there are people with (real) good hearts out there in the world.
