The ones that stay by your side at all times, our your true friends.
I went through a divorce, lost 2 family members and was in a five car pileup accident within two months. Also no family living by me. My ‘supposedly’ best friend who had tons of family members around and who also claimed to be a christian distanced herself from me because of ‘too much drama in my life.’ I let her go and never looked back. Real friends are there when the going gets rough. I decided I did not want a friend who was there during the easy times but would bail when my life had drama in it. It’s been over 10 years, I still miss her but would never associate with a person who showed such heartless behavior. You sound great and seem to be a caring person. Lose this person, it will be her loss. ~ Kimberly Prindiville
Even though you may keep the others, the memory of who was really there when you needed them is always with you and they have a very special place in your heart.
Only a true friend will be truly happy for you when something amazing happens in your life. Most of the people will either not care or get jealous.
