When Friends Betray You and Me
Betrayal is not a happy time
I always thought best friends were supposed to be there for you no matter what but then I came to realize over my lifetime how many true friends that I had and the number shocked me because it was none.
Every single friend who had claimed to be my best friend had betrayed me in some way and the one that hurt the most was someone who stopped talking to me over something so trivial that I now knew I didn't need friends any longer to get on with life.
The only thing that it has given me is no one to worry about except my husband, children, and pets and you know what it feels pretty darn good. So why do people want to be your friends and then turn around and stab you in the back anyway? I think everyone has their own agenda in life and when it doesn't do anything for them then they can walk away like nothing ever happened.
Of course it hurts and it bites hard but when all is said and done what is it we really need friends for? Some say they will be there for you when no one else will but I have found out the hard way that is not true either.
The old song "Friends how many of us have them" was one fine song.
People if you can't be a good and loving friend and you can't be trusted then don't hurt others because you don't know what true friendship is.
