Where does all the years go? How do you know when it is time to let go? Over the years, you know exactly who to call when you need some time to unwind. Some time to live, party and have fun. Everyone is around. They’re agendas are always free. You spend a decade wishing to grow older. To be free and do what you want. Then the next decade comes and you’re free but still don’t know what you want. The friends that were there at your innocence phase have moved on to college, university, work and have replaced you for other likeminded people. You meet new people and begin your journey of discovery. You grasp for air while you narrow down your options. So many things you want to do in so little time. So many places to see and experiences to live. You lend a shoulder to cry on through heartbreaks, failing grades, death in the family, even job losses. You’re present giving your all while the clock slowly ticks away. You get calls in the middle of the night for lack of sleep and slowly console your friend that you swear will be there for you through thick and thin. As your life gets turned in an unexpected direction you realize your faith in people are not deemed so fit. When you are in a dark abyss, do you see who really cares deeply for you. When you need that extra hand, and the people that you had faith in them to reach out and pull you through are the ones that now have they’re agendas all full. Leaving you alone with nothing. Every cloud has a silver lining, and when you think there’s nothing left in you, God finds a way to pull you out. You can’t believe everybody wants your happiness. Some might be waiting for your fall. Forget about the faith in people, put your faith where it matters most, in God. The doors that people close, God opens one even bigger and better! We don’t need quantity of friendships, we just need quality friends. No more having part time friendships, the ones that are always taking and never giving. Some say you can know your true friends when you get incarcerated or hospitalized, I say you know who your friends are during tough times. When you truly need them in despair and their not there. You will see them when your success happens, all of a sudden they will all show up out of nowhere when you rise, but when you needed them most, they weren’t there to turn to. Keep your faith in up above that’s where it counts the most!
