False Friends

'’Anyone can claim to be your friend, but some people are friends in name only. The grief caused when a close friendship turns sour is as bad as death. This evil impulse we have! Why was it ever formed? How did it manage to cover the earth with deceit? Some people will be your friend as long as things are going well, but they will turn against you when trouble comes. A real friend will help you against your enemies and protect you in the fight. Never forget such companions in battle, share the results of your victory with them.’’

Sirach 37.1-6

Why did I post this passage from the Bible? The answer is simple, this is what happen to me. I have had so many friends before but I realized that they only want something out of me. I had a best friend for 5 years but she turn against me 1 day without giving any reason or confronted me. After that my friends never stick around me much longer coz I just don’t trust anyone anymore. Once I felt something wrong about them I’ll further myself away from them. It’s never easy making friends like we used to in kindergarten. You can become someone’s best friend in a minute and play Barbie and building houses with the Lego. That time we don’t even know the meaning of taking advantage of our friends, betraying our friends…those are something that’s not even in the dictionary. Sometimes I just hope everyone else would never grow to know the meaning of betraying people and taking advantage so that we would always be happy and no such thing/word as W-A-R even exist!
