After 15 plus years of friendship... I've finally had the real talk with a friend who was really my enemy and only hoped for my demise. It's amazing how they can run there mouths about you but as soon as you check them your a b@@@@... Moving forward in life. Weight lifted off. Even if I have no best friend/friend I'm better off with out a hater like her.
But therein lies the problem, you can't expect others to do as you would... this is something my girls deal with. My hubby and I will do anthing for our girls and so they think others will too. They are always there for their friends no matter what. Many times they are let down by others. Hard to know because many people are not themselves when you first meet them so how to know who is real and who is only there for what they can take?
