We hear it all the time, find out who your true friends are when times are tough... Yea that is one way. But I'm not completely sold on it because another little anecdote tells us- misery loves company. It's sad to say but I believe it is true. I mean think about it, it's not when someone is down that people are not just around, it's when it comes time to do work. Or as I like to call it, when it's time to do you! People arnt around when you are helping yourself. Okay let me rephrase that... Not just anyone is around when you are picking yourself up of the ground. I mean we see it and do it all the time.... Someone drops there papers, books, eggs, or whatever example you want to use, and most people look and think or say "oh sh*t, that sucks". And thus just a small example... Try picking up, let's say, your life...ewhhh sounds like a blast right. I mean think of someone really trying to get their stuff together... They have no time to give back to the friendship at this time... Are you willing to stick around for that person.
At some point in our life we will all be the person picking up our sh*t off the ground. That sh*t will all be relative to our own lives. Still, none the less it is a time when we are doing work.
The people who stick around when you are doing you and encourage and want you to do better, those are the real friends.
Not the ones that say, you really don't want to go out tonight because you have something important to you tomorrow!?
Or come on, one of what ever your vice is won't kill you,
Maybe they say things like you're crazy, or can't you do that another time... Every time.
People who believe in you don't care what your dream is they help you achieve it. They never make you feel stupid for it. And they never let you give up!
Thank you to all of those people who continue to believe in me and help me reach mine! I am blessed to have so many people do these things for me. I has been a crazy 15 months but this time a year ago I started going for my dreams and found out who those people were in my life and also found out who wernt. It's easy to walk around blind. But if you work on you, and if you do you, good things happen and when surrounded by the right people your dreams can come true and allow you to give back to those who give to you!
