FRIENDSHIPS

Disclaimer: As usual, what is written below is my own personal opinion, and may vary from yours. It doesn’t mean to say that either is correct or incorrect, that’s what makes us all Humans.

In my life, I have had 2 True Friends A & K, who I have known since the late 1980’s.

Both of these winners have supported me, unconditionally, which is what a:

TRUE

FRIEND

IS.

Since moving to Melbourne, I thought I had finally found some great friends, but as usual, no.

I’ve been used, abused and discarded like last nights Roast Tofu Dinner.

When I befriend someone, I’m:

ALL IN

No Matter what and will support them to a point.

I will not support a friend if they severely break the law, but it depends on the circumstances.

In my opinion, True Friends, will never ignore us, and will make time for each other.

True Friends will help when the other is in need.

Also, will never lie to each other, nor:

MANIPULATE,

CONTROL,

OR GET

JEALOUS

Here is a story about a “Friend”

In 1982, I gained employment as a Trolley Boy for a major retailer.

I met another employee from another nearby store, we quickly became friends.

A couple of years later, he met an older woman and they Married.

She was a nurse and would quite often work nightshift.

Saturday nights, we would drop her at work, then drive to Kings Cross, so he could “Get Some Action.”

I despised this as he was married, but he felt he could still go looking.

My loyalty to him, stopped me from telling his wife. I now regret this.

In 1986, I turned 21 and my parents decided to throw me a small party. Only 10 people (Their Choice) were invited.

Among the invites were my 2 Married friends and my Girlfriend at the time.

N.B. My girlfriend told me she was going through some emotional issues, which is why we never consummated our relationship.

Within weeks, she broke up with me, citing the age difference, her mother was against the relationship, she was 4 years older than me, however, my Married friends had the same age difference.

I was devastated by this.

I even went to talk with her mother, who told me she had not said that and honestly, was happy her daughter was happy.

Many years later, my father came clean with what he saw.

He happened to walk into my bedroom and saw my “Best Friend” and “Girlfriend” naked in my bed together.

This then made sense, because she felt guilty for what she did, hence why she broke up with me.

Last I heard, she Married a wealthy Businessman.

Whether what my father told me is true or not, I will never know, however, based on the reactions of my BF and GF at the time, I have no reason not to believe him.

N.B. My father was elderly and did not have long to live.

To close, I would like to say:

Please always give others a chance, especially those outside your normal Friendship Circle, because you never know. My BIF is a young lady, who is 24, I’m 56, and we have both learnt so much from each other. I also advise doing research too.

Thanking You, You Amazing Winners.
