The older I get the more I see who is real in my life. I’ve had several friends unload a lot of shit on me in their times of need, and I always did what I could to help.... sending care packages.... getting up out of bed in the middle of the night to go sit at a diner to listen... buying mental health boosting supplements for them.... literally forcing my way into their house to make sure they weren’t dead... walking 5 miles in the rain (back when I didn’t have a car) to check on them and bring gifts to cheer them up... being up on the phone with them at all hours night after night.
And you know what they did when I needed them. Fucking dipped. Found flaws in me and peaced out. Once the tables turned and I stopped being the giver they weren’t so interested anymore.
I’m not perfect, but I’m a sincere person and I care a lot. But a lot of people are takers.
So to those in my life, whether friends or acquaintances who have been there consistently and checked in on me... you have my loyalty and support, always.
