Someone shared their thoughts on what a true friend is as well as what their experiences with so called true friends has been. The reaction to the comment was amazing! People were offended, angered and some agreed to the simple comment because in reality it was simple.
This is what was shared:
"I've learned that aside from Jesus, and my family, along with a select few, I do not have friends. Why do you say thi? May will use the term, "I love you" very loosely but do not back it up with their actions. If it wasn't for face book, many wouldn't even know anything about me.
I do no write this in anger of with a victim mentality. I write it to speak what is truth. I am more than content with my family being the ones near my heart. I always thought I would have friends that I would grow old with and our kids would grow up together. I see now that I was sadly mistaken. My family has stuck by my side regardless of anything. They have never abandoned or turned their backs on me. They have displayed what the love of God and family is to me, despite my short comings, failures or weaknesses. If you're a believe, then, in your being Christlike, you should be there for those you consider friends, not just verbally saying you love them, but physically showing it."
