We all tell people we become close to throughout life that we will always be friends,
how many of those friendships do you actually take with you till the day you die?
I’ve had several best friends and good friends through various stages of my life,
kindergarten, school and later on in different countries.
When you are someone’s friend, you’re meant to be happy for that person in every aspect of their life, sure you might not always approve, but if there’s a problem and a friendship is real then this is something that can be discussed, but when the decision is made, regardless of the outcome, should a true friend still be supportive?
When life is going good for someone, even if it tears you up with jealousy, shouldn’t you at least pretend that you’re happy for the sake of friendship and love?
Jealousy is a greeneyed monster that has ruined many relationships and friendships, I’ve seen it happen before my eyes to good people, or at least jealousy is a big factor of the separation that sometimes occur when two people slide away from each other..
I know for my own sake, that somethings might bother me endlessly, but I would never use a friends happiness against them just because I wish I was in their shoes or because life might take an unexpected turn. Because that is what friends are for, they should put their own feelings aside if it means that someone they love will remain happy, because in most cases they would do the same for you if the roles were swapped.
If something bothers me, then that is only to do with me an no one else, and to take that out on someone you love is selfish. being unhappy or unsatisfied is much easier if you know something good comes out of it..
I love my friends endlessly and without grudges, in spite of differences and jealousy they are the ones who always want the same for me as I want for them.. HAPPINESS!
The friends that are still sticking by me, those are the friends that really matter, everyone else might come and go…you love many people in a lifetime, but it is easy to tell which ones will forever have a hold on a piece of your heart..
