Friendship

That One Friend

Everyone has that one friend that you can’t take anywhere with you. That one friend that always shades you. That one friend that always tries to one up you. That one friend that is barely ever around when you need them, but always wants you to be there when they need you. That one friend that you have to watch out for, because you feel like you can’t leave your boy/girlfriend in the same room alone with them. That one friend that you have to watch what you say to them. because you have a feeling that they are telling any and everyone that will listen. That one friend you have to take in doses, because they always need to have the spotlight on them. That one friend that envious. You can tell that they are envious when they have nothing but slick things to say when you mention someone new in your life, or when you have good things going for yourself. That one friend that wants so bad to have certain qualities that you posses. That one friend that always wants to beat you to the punch when you find something new that you want to try. That one friend depends on you a lot more than you depend on them, but wants to act like you need them. That one friend that wants everything their way or the highway. That one friend continuously screws you over time and time again, but doesn’t feel as if they do anything wrong. That one friend that always wants to know more than what you’re willing to share. That one friend that doesn’t know how to be their own person. That one friend that does nothing but take. That one friend you keep at a distance, because you do not trust them………

Well if you have a friend like this in your life why do they have the title of friend? If this friend has done you wrong before why do you keep them around?

The title “Friend” is used so loosely that many are walking around calling people friends without actually getting to know them. It takes a good month or so for false facade (if there is one) to fall away and the monster they hide behind the false smiles, compliments, sympathy, and lies comes out. Take the time to really see where people are coming from before you tell them anything personal about you, bring them around your significant other, or integrate them in your family. They could be a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
