a quick rant...

I was just looking back on the past 2 months of my life and i think it is interesting how when something awkward happens between people who are friends or a group of friends...you think are you friends....they either just disappear or try to do the it never happened thing....

I have to say this is very lame.

This is what dictionary.com has to say on friends:
friend
n.
  1. A person whom one knows, likes, and trusts.
  2. A person whom one knows; an acquaintance.
  3. A person with whom one is allied in a struggle or cause; a comrade.
  4. One who supports, sympathizes with, or patronizes a group, cause, or movement: friends of the clean air movement.
Some quotes on friendship

True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost."
- Charles Caleb Colton

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
- Anais Nin

"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."

"A friend is someone who is there for you when he'd rather be anywhere else."
- Len Wein

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."
- Sent by Donna Roberts

"A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself."

"Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend."

"Everyone is a friend, until they prove otherwise."

Friendship, this is something i am in deep thought about as of lately. What an interesting concept it it. What ties us to friendships when we are so selfishly involved in our own lives. Which people do you let slide by while others you would drop anything for. What makes family different than friendship? Why is it that family will always forgive...for the most part, while friends can be gone and lost forever. How does a friendship work when there are not enough commonalities to keep the friendship alive? Jealousy will always destroy any friendship whether family or non family.

How many friends have come and gone in my life. Each touching me a different way. How different my life would be with out the support I had from friends since long gone. Where did it go wrong, where did we all grow apart. Did they grow apart, did I or was it mutual? How iffernt my life would be if those people were not in m life...would it be better or worse? No need to dwell on that, since one could destroy their soul trying to figure this out. Is it better to count your losses and move on in life sometimes? start over when things are not working and people ahve grown apart?

This blog is not really intended to certain people, so don't jump to conclusions if you read this. I just want people to stop and think about what the people in their lives mean, what friendships really matter and maybe go forward today doing better to those people who mean so much to you. Also think of the people who you mean the world to....don't leave them behind either. This is a cruel selfish world....it is better spent not alone.

Very true that the world is cruel and it is better spent with others.
