you will never be friends with beyonce, nicki minaj, or britney spears. following them on social and buying their shit doesn’t equal friendship. we are not in their tax bracket to be their friends.
don’t get me wrong, they can follow you back on socials and invite you to events, but being true friends with them?…
this has been a really interesting year for all of us.
the fact we made it close to the end of 221 says it was a good year.
even though a lot of shit went down for me,
i (and you) are about to finish out Q4 strong.
many of us ended friendships and situationships this year. i won’t lie but it hurt my feelings to see how things ended with some, but my biggest thought was:
“They hurt me and no one has hit me up to even talk about it. It was so easy for them to bounce. All those ‘I love you’ and ‘You are so dope’ meant nada? Wow.”
but the reality of why they haven’t reached out is simple…
i’ve been thinking a lot about my life as of late.
where i went wrong with the jackals that i thought were in my corner.
it’s a real eye-opener when you wake up from the slumber of stupidity.
the more i apologized for reacting to their bad behavior,
the more it was used against me.
you think to yourself:
“Damn… If I knew then, what I knew now, I would have had insert person here wrapped around my entire finger.”
many of those kind of people were doormats to bigger demons than them.
they met their matchwith someone else who didn’t tolerate their shit. this following tweet really spoke to me today…
i don’t think you all know what a friend is.
my idea of friendship might be completely different to yours.
all this time i made excuses,
but i’ve realized ya’ll don’t make me feel included. do you know how insulting it was…
pursuing our dreams can be tough.
we are told we can accomplish anything but it ain’t easy,
i’ll font you that.
when our own parents and familydon’t believe in us,
we turn to our friends to stand with us.
they pull out their pompoms and cheer you on from the sidelines.
it’s that support that help us to keep going. what happens tho when a friend that you have supported in the past…
