My philosophy on people and friends:
People are not what they always seem to be. You meet really nice down to earth people. You meet people who can be ignorant at times. You meet people
who don't seem to be all there. You meet people, who are two-faced and pretend to be your friend. You meet people that are your friend only when you
need something. You meet people that are just plain assholes and have no respect for you or others. Then you meet the ones that are finally there for
you and will help you through thick or thin.
Great people that are your friends and are there for you and help you with anything are hard to come by. Most of my friends are two-faced, or only act
like your friend when you are around them, is why I have stopped contact with them. I have only a couple of friends that live further away than me,
and they are my best friends, and it's hard to see them like I want to. But I know they are there for me, as well as I am there for them. It may only
be a couple but its better than none. I'd rather have 2 true and best friends then I would have 25 two-faced friends.
We meet people everyday, whether it's just a friendly hello, or good bye, we have still met them. Some people just do not have respect nor care for
others. Some people only care about helping others and not their selves. That's great, but you have to take care of yourself also.
You have friends only when you see them at work. After work, don't call you or talk to you see what's up, and if you do, they think what in the
world are you calling me for? I'll see you at work. But they act like your best friend at work.
Some people you meet in life, will influence you to do good, and some will try their best to make you unsuccessful. If someone tells you, don't go
for that job, you couldn't handle it, ignore them. You don't know until you give it a shot. We go through tons of people that try and help you
through life until you die, and go before your final judgment. They can be bosses, teachers, friends, siblings, parents, family, people you don't
know, co-workers, lovers, anything.
You have to respect and love other people, no matter how angry you get at them for being rude to you. Make them feel like the ignorant one, when they
were really being ignorant in the first place.
You meet some people in life that will use you for what little you have and run. You'll meet some people in life that will give you a helping hand,
whether its just wanting .50 for a coke from the coke machine. I have had people give me plenty of money for the coke machine, and then gave my fair
share back to other people who needed it. It might not seem like alot now, but it goes a long way for being kind and helping them out.
Don't be scared of your mistakes, keep going.
