I’ve always said that you don’t know someone till shit hits the fan and I honestly believe that. Way too many people out there hand out friendships like 7-11 does matches and it makes me sick – and sad at the same time.
I’m a firm believer that real friendships are based on more than just partying and having a good time. Friendships are based on loyalty, honor and mutual respect. It’s not to say that you can’t meet a good friend right off the bat but in most cases they’re either pieces of shit or people not worth the excess piss that sits on your toilet lid.
Also…realize that there’s a huge difference between an “acquaintance” and a “friend.” If you’ve met someone for a month and they’ve been cool, does that qualify them as a “friend” or as an “acquaintance”?
If you consider them a “friend” then you might want to reevaluate your “friendship” criteria because they’re quite obviously not that stringent.
But on to another point. It’s sad to say that someone that I looked out for – and trusted – tried to turn me out for something I didn’t even do…but it’s OK. I’m not even mad that the incident happened. If anything, I’m glad it did because it gave me a chance to tell my side of the story while also clearing my name.
I always told this person to have a stronger network of friends and after this nonsense went down I’m sure that they now realize that my people are solid and true to it. Real friends will tell you the truth and have your back no matter what and that’s exactly what happened. The reason that you ended up in this predicament is because of all the nonsense advice you took from your “friends” and in the end it made you look like as ass and I feel bad for you – and your friends
Sadly enough your friends may have offered you the right advice. But that advice was based off of stories that didn't contain the entire truth.
