Friend or Foe

Is your friend your friend, or is your friend your enemy? How well do you know your friend? When you think about those questions, you think about trust, loyalty, lies and deception. Most of us today still call our childhood friend our friend. Friends come and go and that's okay because not everyone you meet are meant to be a part of your life forever. Majority of the time, we are so caught up into having friends that we don't stop to think that it could be our own friend that's holding you back from becoming successful. Not all friends want to see you make it in life. Some will use you for your assets because they know you have a good heart. They will even use you for your popularity, just so they can have clout. For example, if you have something going well for yourself, and all of a sudden you hit rock bottom, called that friend for help and see what their response is. If they don't hesitate to help, then you have yourself a true friend. On the other hand, if they leave you high and dry and start acting funny towards you then that's not your friend. In the end, you will know if your true "friend" has your best intentions because they will always have your back no matter what.

Jealousy is an ugly trait, and negative people around you are only going to bring you down.

Your friend could be someone you met growing up or they could even be your family. A jealous person will never be truly happy for you, but a real friend will be happy for you, and will motivate you to achieve goals. Are you that friend who turns their backs on a friend, or is this your friend we're speaking of? Instead of hurting one another, let's build each other and fix one another crowns. This is for all the kings and queens out there! Let go and let God do the rest, there isn't a reason to retaliate with violence. To know and understand a person true colors and reasoning, we have to look on the inside and the outside of that person to know if we want to associate ourselves with them. A friend that is not your friend will envy you, they're jealous of you, and they wanted nothing to do with you in the first place. If you were once up and now down, your friend should be there to support you.

We have to learn from our mistakes and move on despite how hurt you are by their decision. Sometimes people show you their true colors, and you look over it because you want to give them a chance. In fact, we give them too many chances to where they start to take advantage of you. Life isn't meant to be easy, but we have to figure it out and adjust to the outcome. Focusing on what's important and applying it to your everyday living is how you will prosper. Staying positive and encouraging not only yourself but others along the way will open up new opportunities for you. Stray away from the negativity and walk with your head held high. Sit tight and watch how your life starts to change for the greater good. Life will pick us up and knock us back down so many times, and each time you get back up, try it again until you get it right! It doesn't matter how long or how many tries it took, as long as you get the job done. Peace be still. So what are you going to do about it? You are you because of you!
