One view of many on a very important part of life.
There are times in life that we just feel like the world is spinning out of control. Sure, things may eventually get better or just not be as crazy but most of the time these moments linger for far too long. Friends tell us they are there for us whenever we need them to be, but is that really true? It seems more often than not that these same 'friends' are not there when we do need them the most. It may not be a matter of life and death, but emotionally it sure as hell is. We feel like we have lost our way. We have no light at the end of the tunnel, we feel utterly hopeless, and even useless at times. The question we then have to ask ourselves is whether or not those same people really are friends. A true friend sticks with you through thick and thin. The ones that tell you to call them at three o'clock in the morning but will also answer the phone when you do so. They are the ones who like to call and just say hi simply because you are a joy in their life. We need to stop fooling ourselves into thinking that just because someone says something that is meaningful or important, does not make them a friend. The next time you feel like you are in that hole without any way or hope of getting out, just pick up the phone and call your friend and say 'hello'. If you are in a rut, then a true friend should be able to pick up something in the way you say hello. Maybe not in the first second they answer the phone but give them a few more seconds and you may be surprised. Friends care more than you believe and even when family is not the best option to turn to in your time of need, again, turn to your friends. They have more meaning to them than they may care to share with everyone else. Why? Because they choose to be YOUR friend, not the world's.
