What about ya friends

"Friends How many of us have them? Friends Ones we can depend on Friends How many of us have them? Friends Before we go any further, lets be Friends* [verse 1] Friends Is a word we use everyday Most the time we use it in the wrong way Now you can look the word up, again and again But the dictionary doesn't know the meaning of friends And if you ask me, you know, I couldn't be much help Because A friend is somebody you judge for yourself Some are ok, and they treat you real cool But some mistake kindness for being a fool We like to be with some, because they're funny Others come around when they need some money Some you grew up with, around the way And you're still real close too this very day Homeboys through the Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall And then there's some we wish we never knew at all And this list goes on, again and again But these are the people that we call friends
what is a friend? someone who will stab u in the back? or maybe they have your back. some lyrics from the great" -Whodini

okay so maybe your wondering why are u quoting Whodini lyrics. haha funny. but have you ever stopped and thought about those you actually call your friend? Here are some definitions:

companion (plural companions) -A friend, acquaintance, or partner; someone with whom one spends time or keeps company

friend (plural friends) -A person other than a family member, spouse or lover whose company one enjoys and towards whom one feels affection.

acquaintance (plural acquaintances)- (uncountable) A state of being acquainted, or of having intimate, or more than slight or superficial, knowledge; personal knowledge gained by intercourse short of that of friendship or intimacy.

These days people are so quick to call people their best friends. I know I have the problem too. Mostly with guys. If im coo with a guy over a long period of time. After the debates, arguments, long talks about life.. and theres no attraction.. ill put you under the "oh he's my best friend category" But why is it we call people our friends? Or why do we hold on to friendships because of years. How can you ever grow if never let go of the past to allow yourself room to grow? People from the past tend to hold on to negative aspects over your head and label you..."bitch, needy, crybaby, arrogant , hoe, etc." but anyways.. seriously..im over this whole friend thing. im no longer calling people my friends. you can assume were friends if u want too. but we are just coo from here on out. that friend word is just as bad as saying you love someone. some people say you only have one true love..two if ur lucky. thats how i feel about true genuine friends. you only have one, two if your lucky. Personally i have been through so much with "friends". fallen out, argued, been mad at etc. and sometimes i wonder is it me? Am i a horrible friend? Honestly i would kill for my friends. my friends become my family. if u hurt them then u hurt me. cuss you out ask questions later.. lol Although i put my friends top on my list.. i always lose them as quick as i gained them. throughout the years i have been so close to so many people. i dont know if its me changing, us growing apart or again me simply being a bad friend. friends come and go each year like the seasons. each summer i end a friendship with someone. so sad. most people come back again. but some don't. i have gotten to the point where i can care less if your mad at me or not. people especially females are so damn sensitive and petty. people are so quick to be mad at someone else for the wrong doings and need someone to blame.. okay im venting too much. so be aware to those around you and analyze the ones who call your "friends"

Thats how i feel.
i'll leave you with some lyrics by TLC... what about ya friends? Are they worth it? As selfish as it sounds dont put anyone before you. Love yourself! Be your own friend! Eff everyone else. Those that matter will show up and be there. No matter what.. If you think your my friend.. i have question for you.. Are youuuuu???

"What about your friends will they stand their ground. Will they let you down again. What about your friends are they gonna be low down. Will they ever be around or will they turn their backs on you."
