Someone said that they have a best friend and that they never argue.
I would just like to say to that, that not arguing isnt what having a good friend is all about.
I have a best friend and he and i argue quite a bit. We've had throw-down, bare-all fights. There are times when i dont like him very much and he
doesnt like me very much. You know why? Because a true friend will disagree with you, a true friend will tell you when you're wrong, a true friend
should be just that; true. Honest. I value what he says because i know he wouldn't lie to me. Sometimes i dont like what he has to say, but i take it
to heart. And vice-versa. He doesnt always like what i have to say but he trusts me.
Being a friend sometimes means having to say the hard things. Example: I was married. Not getting into it, but he wasnt a good guy. Everyone liked him
tho, hes a very superficially "good" person (behind closed doors is when things get bad). When he started cheating on me (with all of my
"friends"), no one told me. No one "wanted to get involved" or to "hurt my feelings". Except my best friend. He told me straight up that he
didnt like my husband, didnt trust him, and suspected that he was cheating on me. Now, i didnt believe him, i thought he was just being jealous or
whatever. I got mad at him for a while but when the truth finally did surface, it turned out he was right all that time. I found out who my true
friends were. A real friend WILL get involved, even if that means stepping on your toes.
Needless to say, i dont have many friends anymore. I had a learning experience, dont trust people much these days. Im jaded well beyond my years. But
through all that, ive had a few people that remain close friends. The one in particular. He is the one person that i feel i will always be close with,
hes the one person i trust no matter what. He's my protector. Im his voice of reason. We dont always get along but neither of us would question the
And thats my 2cents, folks. ^-^
