"Things aren't always what they seem,. Sadly, social media makes it so easy for us to believe how other lives are . They have a lot of followers but are lonely, post about luxury but are totally in debt, excellent love relationships but are miserable., In all actuality, we have no idea what is going on in the midst of things they DONT post about. No one, no matter how it seems, are transparent as they claim to be.
Ever have one of those friends you just wanted to smack silly because their life is a mess or going nowhere and they keep hanging with the wrong people? Sometimes you have to let them go and pray for them and be there for them when their life crashes on the rocks and their fake #friends walk away and laugh at them. Be the one who is the hand of gentle forgiveness helping them up again.
So true and I could careless my family is always enough . To me No matter what I do in this life someone will not approve. I know what I want and the type of person I want to be, and that is all that matters. If my decisions make me happy with the quality of life that I lead, I win. No outside approval required. I want to surround myself with people who lift me up. If that means there are less people to do the lifting, so be it. Just sayin'! Thoughts of the day JMG
"I no longer tolerate anyone in my life who pretends to be my friend, is disloyal to me and back stabs me, after l have being nothing but kind, caring & generous with them. I always forgive fake friends for hurting me, but now I keep them at a safe distance." This is not my description, but since it conveyed my true feelings on this subject, I just left it there...:):
