LOVE YOURSELF AND BECOME YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND
Did you ever realize that when we start to love ourselves, people tend to get upset about it? But if we love ourselves for who we are, why so much hate from others? It's not because we're stupid, selfish, or dumb. It's because we're sticking to our true selves.
FRIENDS DON'T PLAY WITH YOUR FEELINGS FOES DO
And yes, while many of us have friends, very few have REAL friends. Now, what do I mean by that? Let's say you meet someone at a coffee shop and have a good conversation. Things start going well. You hang out more. Hooray, you have made a new friend. Sounds good? But what if they were your friend in public but your enemy in private? How would you know? What would you do? How would you feel?
DON'T ALLOW THEM TO SLITHER YOU INTO A SUCKER
These questions can be tricky because friends like that have a title. And that title given to them is a snake. They slither. They're sneaky. And they're always prepared to bite you. That's why we have to listen to what they say and watch their actions. They can become secretly jealous of you for no reason. And you wouldn't know it at first. But once the texts and phone calls stop, you figure something is wrong. They'll have other people that you don't even know hating on you because of something that "friend" said. A REAL friend shows no hate or jealousy toward you. They cheer for you. They want nothing but the best for you. They smile and enjoy your nights out. They accept you for you. Finally, they should be the ones you can count on for support and return the favor by always being there for you. That's why it's important to know someone before we call them a friend. And that's no lie. However, if their actions don't match their words, then the ONLY word you should be saying is bye bye bye!
