Friends Are Like That!
By Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado
Wednesday, August 07, 2002

Share this with your friends on FaceBook

Have you ever wondered why there are those who call themselves your friends, but they treat you like a piece of unwanted, discarded newspapers or garbage?

Why do they do this? Friends are like that!

Or have you ever wondered why some of these "so-called" friends bore you to tears about what ~THEY~ are going through; and to hell with what anybody else thinks or what others are going through?

Why do they do this? Friends are like that!

Have you ever considered this: that sometimes friends use others, just so they can remain friends; or they want other people to feel sorry for them?

Why do they do this? Friends are like that!

Why do friends do this to each other? Why do they have to be so mean and so hurtful to one another? Do they enjoy being miserable?

I know some people who are like this, and I don't like being around them because they only end up making me feel miserable, but then this old Jesus Thing about showing love and compassion towards your fellow man comes up, and I then have to do as JESUS would want and not be an old stick in the mud or a nasty *nogoodnik*. So I end up being nice, even towards those people who have hurt or used me in any way.

Sometimes I don't understand why certain people have to be friends with me, but I have to be a good friend to them, and I have to show them that ~I CARE~ and am ~CONCERNED ABOUT THEM AND THEIR PROBLEMS~.

So this is why we remain friends. I am only doing what ~JESUS~ would want me to do. It is my Christian duty to be friends even with those who are considered "unlovable".

Amen to that Karen, most of my friends are wonderful but I have a few that would be deemed unlovable!
In Christs Love
