Over the years, I have had my share of friendships. I’ve had friends whom I thought will last but left sooner than I expected. There were people whom I became friends and eventually left for no reasons. The saying that says we have 3 kinds of friends that will come in our lives, the friends for a reason, the friends for a season, and those friends for a lifetime. Because I am a very friendly person and I get along with people so easily, I get to experience having these friends for a season. There were friends whom I thought were going to be lifetime friends but they appear to be another friends for a season. Certainly I have experienced these friends for a reason, used me but eventually taught me a lesson.
In this time of my life, I have realized that it is less important to have more friends and that it’s more important to have REAL ones. My circle has become smaller as the years progressed. There were friends whom I thought were for me and with me…but wrong! I felt like I was left behind the moment they deemed me not fitting into their standards (whatever standards those are). Oh well! I cannot waste my energy crying over people who obviously doesn’t care about my feelings with their “judgmental” attitude.
I am glad though that I still have this friend whom I can completely express myself, my crazy thoughts, the silly things I did and still doing, with all confidence and without worrying that I will be judged and eventually will put me in the “unfriended” zoned. I thank God for you my dear friend for allowing me to be just myself, for hearing my silly stories without judging me, for understanding me, for the words of wisdom, for the acceptance of the changes in me but never fails to point out my lapses and weaknesses when needed with so much love and understanding. To the kind of friends out there who are supportive, understanding. not judgmental. and most of all the kind of friend who love unconditionally, I salute you all! May God continue to shower you with much love, blessings, and more friends.
