It has been easy for me to make “friends”. I am an open book, honest and empathetic. It seems that I attract people, who need a shoulder to cry on, or someone to abuse.
Most of these “friendships” are no longer. Thank GOD! I do admit I have learned from them, they have hurt me but most of all they have forced me to look within, ask myself the hard, painful questions. Basically, the hardest question to ask but especially figure out is WHY? Why, would I allow this kind of people into my life, people who do not have good intentions, and who inevitably hurt me.
The answer is simple, I needed to learn the lessons they taught me. I needed to love myself, and only allow those in who love and respect me.
I am thankful, grateful and blessed that GOD has taken/removed most of them, if not all. I am left with the “creme de la creme” of friends, and for them I so incredibly thankful!
Thankful, Grateful and Blessed!
