Friendship

Friendship! Think about that word for a minute. What does it mean to you? Are you a good friend? Are your friends true to you?

I'd say I only have a few true friends. Sure, I have tons of acquaintances but I could count on one hand my true friendships. Some may say that's sad but I'd take my few friends over two handfuls of bitter, back-stabbing women any day.

When I think about friendship, I think about the good times, the bad, the laughter, the tears, the secrets, the hugs and the honesty. I consider myself a good friend and I think my *true* friends would say the same thing.

If you've indeed gossiped about me, laughed at me behind my back, felt the need to choose one friend over another, then chances are I'm not your friend anyway and vice versa.

There's no greater feeling than being able to confide and lean on your friends. Friends are nice to have during the good times but they are especially important during the tough. If you can't turn to them during trying times, then what do you have? Who can you turn to?

Think about yourself and your friendships today. Do you need to be a better friend? Do you need to release the hold on someone you *think* is your friend but honestly you know they aren't?

Hug your friends today and tell them how much they mean to you.

Consider yourself hugged my friend!
Friendships are not one way street. True friends are rare sometimes... they are out there, but sometimes you have to wade thru some that fool ya.
I am thankful for my friends, I include you on that list. Anyone who has you as a friend is a lucky person! I am so glad we got to meet each other and cement our online friendship!

Aww Brandi I am so sorry, it's so hard to have a friend seemingly turn their back on you, it has happened to me but here is the thing , always remember that it's their loss, you are a wonderful person and anyone would be lucky to be your friend and if they throw that away then they are the one who loses out in the end. Everything has a way of coming out in the end and I have a feeling everyone who does bad things to another or drops you as a friend because they are so enamored with someone else it will come back to bite them in the butt in the end and they will have no one but themselves to blame. Keep your head up, I will even lend you Edward to put a smile on that beautiful face :O) And I for sure consider you a friend you were there for me through some hard shit LOL.
