    Can Friendships Really Mean Nothing?

    I believe you can learn something from every experience you've had. Everyone has something you can learn from them. I don't feel there is a friendship that is truely a waste of time. There could be friendships that end badly, but you did end up learning something from them...

    Say Farewell to Your Fairweather Friends...

    ... And not a second too soon. RAYMONDE- "No One Can Hold A Candle To You" That song above is actually a tribute to vocalist, James Maker's good friend. Those opening two lines are inspiring and the song's chorus is: "No one can hold a candle to you When it...

    I'm Confused

    Yeah, it seems I've been fooled and that's completely normal nowadays. So, next time when someone will try to do it again by acting like a friend and saying things only a best friend can say, I'm gonna stop wondering if that's true or not, I'm gonna whoop their ***! I mean, I...

    Most Of The Time...

    What A Crock...

    Now I won't go into great detail about what transpired but I had a friend, who I thought was my best friend, who practically stabbed me in the back when I needed her the most.
