I think good friends are hard to come by. Like real, always be there for you, tell you how it is, ride or die friends, they’re so hard to come by. Everyone says they’re your friend, but it’s not until something really goes down when you start seeing just who you’re true friends are. To me a good friend does not always agree with what you say. They have their own opinions and are comfortable enough with you to voice them when they feel necessary. A bad friend will agree with what you say most of the time, but will spend more time telling other people how wrong you are. A good friend will be there as much as they can through the bad times in your life. They will offer you an ear that listens or a shoulder to cry on. A good friend will help to find solutions or options, they will never judge or point fingers.
A good friend will have the ability to be happy for you when good things happen in your life, even if their own life is not going well. A good friend will celebrate with you. They will offer solutions and will tell you the truth about everything. A good friend will trust your judgment and hope that everything works out for you. To me, trust is a big thing when it comes to friendship. If you trust somebody in a way where you know they would never do anything to purposely hurt you, both emotionally and physically, then it’s probably a good thing you keep this person in your life. If a person is truthful with you even at times where you know they’re right but they don’t say exactly what you want to hear, then they are a friend. Friendship to me is more a matter of giving than taking. Loving unconditionally and caring genuinely, those are the foundations on which real friendships can be successfully built, sustained and cherished for a lifetime. <3
How the FUCK can one call him/herself sober if they still smoke?!?
This baffles me to no end because it’s such a contradiction! If you’re all about staying clean & sober and go to AA meetings but stilll smoke…. Then are those things you learn and practice really helpful??
For someone to smoke THAT much, she shouldn’t be considered sober anymore. Like many others, she found a fucking loophole.
Ever notice how when justifying a child’s misbehavior no one ever says stuff like “girls will be girls” or “she’s a girl”, but the list of things a “young lady” can’t do is almost endless?
You learn from a young age that masculinity comes with freedom; femininity comes with restrictions.
