We’ve all had bad friends.
Friends we made for temporary convenience who we never made a real connection with. This made it hard to care when fights about silly things occurred or life drama that was just way more than you could deal with.
Friends who you gave your all, but just didn’t care about you in return. Friends that didn’t really care about anyone but themselves.
The list could go on and on, but we’ve all experienced or are currently experiencing bad friends.
Don’t keep them around, let them go. Anyone not helping to build you up and anyone trying to tear you down should be gotten rid of.
But don’t forget about them – appreciate them. Appreciate them because now you know what you’re looking for in a friend. You are are looking for true friends who will stick by you through the years. You are looking for real friends who care.
And when you find those friends, the feeling will be unexplainable. Because you’ve dealt with the bad people, you’ve dealt with being hurt – and now you don’t have to deal with it anymore. Your bad friends truly make you appreciate your good friends.
They’re gone, but not forgotten. They are lessons we learned the hard way. Thankfully, we have our good friends to help us now.
