I am always very leery when someone tries to befriend me because I have been burned so many times from people that called themselves my friend. I have also learned never to lend money to friends because they tend to feel that they either don’t have to pay it back or they take their sweet time repaying. I used to be a sucker for a sad story and I would help everyone that asked for it or told me a sad story, which was usually a lie.
There is really only one person I would ever ask to borrow money from and it has never been more than $20.00, just enough to put gas in the car and to pick up milk and bread. I hate asking anyone for help and it is really rare that I do. When my dad was alive he helped me out several times and I always repaid him in the time I told him I would but now that he is gone I have no one that I would ever ask to help me out like he did.
We have to be so careful of those that call themselves our friend because most people are just like leeches as they suck as much out of us as they can get. I feel sorry for wealthy people because they are used by so many and that includes family members as well. I have someone online that says they would like to meet me as a friend and I really question why they would want to be my friend in real life.
There is one person that I would like to meet and see if there was anything to build a friendship on but that is all I would want from him. I have no doubt he has dealt with many that wanted to be his friend so they could prosper from his name and fame. I also have no doubt he is very cautious of who he lets into his life and rightly so because he has had people take advantage of him in the past.
I have to really like someone to be their friend and if I don’t like you then we will never be friends. I am not one to play up to anyone and pretend I like them to be their friend and to take advantage of them. I know I sound to good to be true but I am honest to a fault and anyone that knows me knows that I do not use anyone knowingly and I never reach out to anyone with malice in my heart.
Change in our lives is something we should be looking forward to but some people prefer to fight change because they fear it or they are content with their current situation. We change every day even if we do not notice it. Sometimes change is subtle and sometimes it hits us like a wrecking ball and knocks us on our ass. We must change to grow and we must be open to change because no matter how bad things get there is always something better coming our way.
It is true that we must hit rock bottom at times before we begin to bounce back to happier times and I do believe I am finally bouncing back up, in fact I know I am. I know a much better life is coming my way and I know that love is just on the horizon. Everything that has happened in my life has gotten me to this point and I regret nothing no matter how hard it has made my life.
I have great faith in a happy future and yes many sad events have taken place to get me to this point but everything happens for a reason. No one leaves our life for no reason and every empty glass is once again filled. I have grown tremendously and I have learned so much about myself even though I have had to fight to keep my head above water at times. I am so looking forward to my future and the changes that must take place to get me there, how about you????
People do not change or at least their basic personality doesn’t change and a perfect example is a man who hits women. I was involved with someone when I was much younger and yes he hit me. I gave him several chances after he told me he would never do it again but he did. I finally got away from him and his abuse and I am so glad that I did. When someone cheats on you they will cheat again, eventually.
People that lie will continue to lie and those that steal will continue to do so unless they win the lottery. The same goes for anyone that verbally abuses you, they will never stop completely and you will continue to experience the abuse down the road if not immediately even when they say they will stop. You can tell so much about people by the way they act or the things that they say if only you would really listen.
There are very kind people in this world but most are not giving and loving and it seems as if they want others to pay for their pain. I have had a very rough life but I do not take it out on anyone and even when I am mad I try not to take my anger out on any one even though I have and have felt so bad afterward. I am generally laid back and easy going but once my feathers are ruffled I will fight for what is right in my eyes.
I would rather talk things out and come to a happy medium than to fight to be right. When two people argue no one really wins so it is best to talk it out and each side give a little to make things right again. I will admit that the best sex is make up sex so a good argument every now and then is great for the sex life, lmao. If you think you are always right then you are really a loser in any argument.
