Growth.

This is an issue that I've touched on many times on my blog throughout the years, which is my lack of friendships. I've trusted all the wrong people and I seriously thought I would never get it right until finally I begin to get right in 2010/2011. I began to learn things about myself and what the issue really was. I allowed people to use me, take advantage of me by any means, and just all around take my friendship for granted. Sadly, I allowed this behavior, I allowed these people into my life and gave them the full permission to do mean and hurtful things to me. I rather be in a world surrounded by associates than to be surrounded by people who pretend to be my friend only when they need something. I know I haven't been the best of friend to many people that have gone and came in my life, maybe I should have fought harder, maybe I should have learned to let go, maybe I shouldn't have over cross my boundaries but I believed that's what a real and good friend was there to do.

I do apologize to one of my best friends that I lost throughout my growth. I think she was a bigger part of me than I realized at the time however, I wasn't the same to her but I thank her for teaching me what it is to be a friend to someone who appreciates that strength, that honesty, that care for someones well being. At this point I have one best friend and it hasn't always been easy with her or me but the fact that she isn't willing to give up and she actually fights for my friendship makes me appreciate what we have built over the years, it's not one-sided like all the years I've wasted with other "friends". Will there be more people I meet or decide to become friends with? Yes, but I now take precautions.

I've been there, thinking someone is your friend when they really arent. Its not fun, at all. Its an eye opener though. You.re more careful with who you trust & who you consider a friend. I can say I consider a few people in my life friends. The rest are aquaintances. My close friends, I consider family.

Yes I just don't understand people now a days. I've been a friend to most and always wondered why they took advantage of me or disrespected me the way they have but I guess I was tooo quick to put a label on them.

I can relate. I am glad that we both learned a lesson and we thank those who taught us that lesson. I have such a hard time making friends now since I learned my lesson after graduating high school. It is a bad and a good thing because I can see who is really there for me and who is really not.
