So it’s amazing how people are so willing to throw away friendship.

They get angry about something having nothing even to do with you.

They say things they probably don’t even mean, and in turn you may say things you don’t even mean.

Often you say things just to bring the other person to their senses.

But sometimes they don’t come to their senses.

They need to let out on someone and you’re the convenient scapegoat.

Before you know it, they throw your friendship under a bus.

Personally, Im not one to make friends that easily or quickly — there needs to be some real chemistry and the building of trust — but then I am one who is an eternally loyal friend.

Yet, I see others, they kiss and hug and say you’re like family, but then when they get angry, oh boy, you are gone like the wind.

Maybe that’s not what real friendship is.

To me, friendship surpasses dumb deeds and words and stupid fights, it’s about being there through thick and thin.

Take the false teeth out and put some permanent ones in — they last much longer. ;-)
