Usually I keep my posts pretty generic and I try not get too personal because most of the people who read this blog I know in real life. I’ve decided in the next couple of posts that there are some things that I want to get off my chest so this blog will be my sounding board. I won’t be naming actual names but if you know me close enough you’ll probably know who I’m talking about and who I’m talking to. With that said if you are offended or feel slighted by anything that I have or will write then as you probably already suspected I think that’s your problem and not mine.
“Here we go, here we go, my circle tighter than a Cheerio. People want a handle like silver spoons. People want a handle like here you go. Man the realest nigga I know is inside the mirror bro, And these fools be trippin’ like a suitcase, a shoelace. They too fake, and I’m too real, boy.” ~Big Sean
I’ve never been the type to say I have a bunch of friends. Sure I’m a pretty popular guy and a lot of people know me. The only thing this means to me is that I have a lot of acquaintances. I have a hard time letting people get close to me. Most of my relationships are surface and I’m ok with that. Why am I like this?
Loyalty is one of those things that I come to expect from people close to me. I don’t think that it’s too much to ask. Ask any of my close friends and they’ll probably tell you that I’m one of my most loyal people they know.
“Lack of loyalty is one of the major causes of failure in every walk of life” ~Napoleon Hill
I’ve learned from those close to me how fake friends can be detrimental to your well-being. Fake friends are the worst kind of enemies. I’d rather tell me you don’t fuck with me than for me to find out that you aren’t a real friend. Because I value real friendship I think fake friends can go fuck themselves.
“Fake friends are like shadows. Always near you at your brightest moments, but nowhere to be seen at your darkest hour.” ~ Unknown
It’s not by accident that I am a member of a fraternity whose motto is “Friendship is essential to the soul.” If you’re my friend I would go to the end of the earth for you. Just as much as I make a great friend I make an even worse enemy. There are people who have put their names on that list. With a that said, I’m stepping off of my soapbox and continuing to do great things with and for my real friends.
Good day and good night.
