If you are blessed with old friends, then life has been good to you. Unfortunately most of my old friends have either moved away or passed on to a better life. I’m grateful for the friends who are still around.
When I think back over the years, certain memories are brighter than others. There are whispers and giggles in the night with those friends who brighten our days and linger on in our hearts. Friends we could tell our deepest secrets to and not worry that those secrets would spread far and wide.
Then…there are plastic friends. People we trusted and the ones who turned on us.
But wait. Did I say friends? Not so. These people are users who are discontented with their existence and can’t or don’t care to make a difference. They feed on making others unhappy so they can feel good. It’s sad to think someone goes through life that way.
Aren’t we glad 99% of the world isn’t this way?
One of my upcoming books has such a character. When the character compromises the main character’s friendship, and the only friend she has left, surrounding circumstances pitch her into a total, deep depression.
The story promises to raise the bar on how real friends recognize low self-esteem and contempt in others. Friends who stick by you no matter what you’re going through and hold dear the person you once were.
I look forward to writing this book, one that will require a lot of tears through-out the writing process. With a friendship torn apart, can hope, therapy and love, further damage or help build a stronger relationship?
