Filtering Friends

At a certain point in our lives, we will have to filter the people we surround ourselves with. In short, we choose who we want to grow old with, and who we want gone forever.

It’s that innate power in each of us to choose what we think will be best for us in the long run, that we give in and surrender.

I remember the first time I realized I had that power. I messed it up and made choices I regretted later on.

But it comes with age- that you master the art of letting go. At a certain point in our lives, we will put up barriers and walls and we will move on. There will always come a time when people you thought you can trust will betray you- and you just have to let them go lest you run the risk of getting betrayed over and over again.

I could not count with my bare hands the number of people I’ve shut down. And on second thought, It’s not really about burning bridges- but about loving myself more than any of them, so as to think of what’s best for me than get the recognition of an unworthy few.

    first time i’ve read your blog. this is so true.

  2. This is indeed very true and this kind of power should be taken out very seriously and should have time made for it to adjust. πŸ˜€ But we should not let them go so far that we forget what each other happened even if that person did something wrong. Sometimes even when we are tired or disappointed for a person let us not have lose hope on them or take them so badly. Like God he said that each and everyone has a chance. We never run out of chance whenever times we fall short. πŸ˜€ comment lang po! πŸ˜€

    That’s true. Not everybody is sincere enough to be a friend unless they prove it by staying by your side through your difficult times. πŸ™‚ Once trust is betrayed, almost everything is ruined and the relationship can never be the same again.
