“Friends are like money, easy come … easy go”.
I sat there thinking about how true this sentiment is. There are times that we “think” that a certain person is going to be a part of your life forever. Like, “We’re the best of friends and we’ll always be there for each other until the end.” I can’t begin to list the number of “Best Friends” that I have had in my life. My brother, although rude and crass, is brutally honest. He will meet my “best friend” and tell them he won’t see them again because I go through best friends like people go through money. Gone before you ever really had it. Allison wrote something along those lines … friends coming and going. She lets people out of her life that are not healthy or good for her. I think that goes true with a lot of people. But how many friends have you had that are in abusive relationships? That could be something as simple as that person always letting you down. So I thought about it a little bit, wondering why it is that people in my life seem so … disposable. My answer is … that person has served his or her purpose and it is time to move on. You are either here to teach me something or I am here to teach you something. The lessons must be learned and I am not just a professor at a college, I am an instructor in life.
