The easiest way to see the “realness” of those who claim to be your friend is to experience a hardship.
Three weeks ago, I lost my job, it took me about a week to recover from the shock of it.
Termination reason given “At Will”… Which means no reason is needed to let you go.
Maybe if I got in trouble, I could understand. maybe if I was written up, I could understand. maybe if my evaluations, work ethics, attendance was so poor, I could understand.
But to be given a “At Will” is just bullshit to me.
I find it amazing how people pretend to be support when their “friend” is going through a tough time.
Since being let go… I have been pounding the job market, interviewing, and trying to remain positive throughout this process.
So far no offers have presented itself.
My confidence, my hope, and my positivity is starting to demolish.
I’m not lazy nor do I enjoy being home all day.
I love to work! I’m a workaholic.
It’s funny how people treat you during your rough time.
They pretend to care, they pretend to be supportive and they pretend to be positive.
But throughout that temporary “front” they don’t give a fuck about you.
Because let’s be real… It’s my current situation, this is my life.
Enemy or foe, no matter what anyone goes through, I help in any way I can.
I remember talking to a “friend” (I’m using that term sarcastically) his bank accounts were frozen due to a child support claim. He spoke on how he had no money to get back and forth to work or to eat in the meantime. The caring person I am, I send money without question or without hesitation.
I’ve had friends who needed a roof over their head I took them in or I assisted them in any way I can.
Because of past experiences, I decided to see how much of a “friend” some of these people truly are. So I asked to borrow money. I didn’t do it because I needed it, I did it to prove a point.
Hoping to be wrong… But they proved me right.
Not only have I not heard from any of them since I sent the texts. But they took it to the max and unfriend me on Facebook and stop following me on Twitter…
I don’t understand these people of God. I don’t understand the “maturity” of these adults.
Either way, I thank them for doing what they did.
May they never reach out to me again in life.
Life is hard when you have no real friends or family…
But I’m thankful to have the greatest best friend…myself
Because without “me” I would be one broken individual.
I just hope one day God will grant me the gift of selfishness…
Because caring for others is complete bullshit….
