Friends are essential. We all know that. However, it’s also good to be aware that we will lose friends along the way. Some will leave, some will die, and some friendships die on their own. However, the worse way to lose a friend is through a betrayal. It doesn’t matter which end you’re on. I’ve been on both. I’ve hurt, and betrayed friends and have been betrayed by some, as well. It sucks!
Why do friends betray friends? Selfishness is the most popular reason. That was my reason. I was very selfish with my own needs that I didn’t care if any of my friends got hurt by my hurtful words or thoughtless actions.
We wouldn’t know how important our friends are until they’re gone. Of course, we will miss the interactions and hours spent just hanging out. But, our friends are also beacons of parts of our lives. They are our faithful witnesses to what were once our youthful dreams and aspirations. When they leave us, they take a piece of us with them. But, unfortunately, most of the time, that piece of us never comes back.
Value the people in your lives. Be grateful. Be considerate. Be giving and be faithful.
