Your friends are your most assured connections, believe it or not. Most people up there have been fortunate to have kept at least a friend with purpose...
Be nice to yourself, don't give others power over your life, know what to share and what to hold on to.
You can judge me as much as you like, that also makes you human, we put to sword when we can't ration the whys and the whats. I would be surprised if you had done otherwise. However, sins are sins, no double standard before God, because mine seems more grievous to you doesn't make yours less grievous to someone else.
I lost my job because I stole from my company and this was all because my wife kept comparing us to her friends
A real friend is rare, so if you have one, trust me, you are lucky.
It is not such a bad idea to be passionate, shy, considerate, amiable and even meek but in all of these don't sacrifice your happiness because someone doesn't feel secure about your growth.
If you are on the right path, keep at it, it will soon pay off. Don't claim to be what you are not just to be liked by people. Even when you have so much be modest about it. It is a world you can't really predict, stay real.
"Laying on my bed, can't help but keep rolling from one end to another, and I could barely hold back the tears; my dreams, all I hoped to become slipping away and all I could manage from my heavy mouth was, “Why? Why is this happening to me?” but I got no answer." I was taught better but now I have no choice than to run away.
We can't put price tag on companionship, it might be easy to take for granted but life is never complete without someone to share it with. Happiness might be from within but we need people around to make it worthwhile.
