…that the people you thought were your really good friends really aren’t.
…that the people you thought would always be in you corner don’t really care about being there.
…that although they think they care, many times they’re just too busy to be that person you need.
…that true friends don’t always have to agree with everything we believe in; but that those disagreements should be put aside for true friendship.
…that when you really need a shoulder to cry on or a hand to help you up, it may not be there from the people you expected.
…that true friendship sometimes comes from those we least expected.
…that true friendship doesn’t expect anything in return for that friendship.
…that we’re not always the friends we need to be to others.
…that sometimes apologies are needed by both sides.
…that acquaintances are not the same as friends. Acquaintances can become friends, and friends can become only acquaintances.
…and that some day it may be too late to try to rekindle a friendship that has long since gone by the wayside.
Treasure your true friends; if they leave, then they were only friends for a season. If they stick by you through good times and bad times, and don’t desert you if they make new friends, then they are friends forever.
