As some people say, "Telling the truth might hurt you more!" But I totally disagree with that because I just feel that "Telling me a lie will hurt me more than that!" To really find a good friend is not easy nowadays because so-called friends tend to take advantage of you when you are too honest to them. The world is getting too realistic and everyone tends to be selfish for their own benefits and neglects others around them. How many of them would really sincere when they talk about friendship with you!
Just a story from me. Quite some time ago, I really thought that 2 of my buddies can really be good friends of mine regardless what will happen to us in the future. We used to crapped a lot with each other when ever we meet up or even through messages when we don't meet. But just before we were separated apart, a chain of lies were splashed onto me. And disappointment filled within me and emotionally upset. I kept on wondering why do they want to lie to me! And so, I prefer to keep my mouth shut to them now and try to assume things were the same as before, but it's not going to be forever. What I learnt from here is that, I shouldn't put the threshold of being a good friend so low or else I will be getting more disappointment.
For those who have these kind of friends around you, be more aware of being friends with them and try to be more independent. They might be the last person that you want to find in the contact list when you need help.
Enjoy and have a nice day. Treasure every friendship!
