Superficial Friends

Whenever I lose a friend I get hurt like losing a lover. It takes a process of letting go and moving on. In my existence I was convinced that we’d meet a lot of people in this lifetime playing either a big or small role in our story. Nevertheless, they were there to teach us a lesson. Lately I have been feeling grateful to realize the difference between friends who will truly be there no matter what and those who'll just be there during fun times.  

Circumstances in life will bring a test to someone's friendship. And when a person shows you their immediate hesitation to help in your most trying times, you have to realize boundaries. You have to know when to identify them as your true friends, acquaintances and those who I label, superficial friends.

Superficial friends are people you can never trust. They are with you for fun or when they benefit from you. They will, however, easily turn their backs on you when they can't see a situation beneficial to them anymore. You can never rely on them and you must be careful to bring your guards down when they are around.

Superficial friends are usually just for fun and that is it. Nothing more, nor deeper; and sometimes, sadly, even lesser.

Good thing about mastering the art of identifying who's who, you won't be investing too much of your trust and affection to someone you know is not worth it.

  1. Yes, yes. I so agree to this. Good thing there are people whom you could still call "true" friends. Let's just focus our energy to them para hindi ma waste ang time natin. :)

    1. I agree. i practice the art of deadma. it is healthier to focus the energy in more productive and positive things rather than let the negatives feed on you

  3. sadly, too many people have disgraced the sanctity of friendship. Over the years, the meaning of the word got jumbled and murdered that it now equals to anyone they think is one.

    however, I do not believe that friendship can be tested only through your trying times. It can also be tested on their trying times. How they react, how they deal, who they reach out too. It can tell you what kind of "friend" they really are.

    1. I agree that it is not the only way to test friendship. and however you wanna put it, the point is to be able to identify who's who among the people you consider friends.
