Friend Or Foe?

I don't understand how someone who calls himself/herself a friend can withhold pertinent information that could possibly harm you or embarass you.

I don't understand how a true friend could know that "someone else" does not like you, and at the same time allow you to laugh and grin with that "someone else".

True friends cover you and protect you. They know how to hide your flaws - not expose them. True friends monitor you when you are going through - they don't abandon you.

It hurts me deeply when I discover that a "friend" has not been the friend to me that I have been to him/her.

Are these people friends or foes? Weigh in!

Proverbs 18:24
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

An Aah- ha Moment

You can not force, manipulate, or pressure others into accepting you, appreciating you or loving you. YOU must accept YOU. YOU must appreciate YOU. YOU must love YOU. Be who God created you to be!

Psalm 139:14

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Reality Check!

Sometimes reality stares us in the face in a way that we can't ignore. Reality is a reflection of who we really are which includes our strengths, our weaknesses, our successes and even our failures. When reality stares us in the face, it doesn't matter how much we try to ignore it, we can't. Reality is painful. It is what it is.

Sometimes, reality forces us to take a look at ourselves and see
- just how stupid we are,
- just how insignificant we are,
- just how vulnerable we are,
- just how much of a victim we are,
- just how pathetic we are,
- just how out of control we are,
- just how desperate we are,
- just what a fool we are. For what? Is it worth it?
