I believe that our inner circle needs to be filled with strong, supportive people who know who they are and what they want. People who will not let us fall, stumble maybe, but mostly they help us soar. I believe this enables us to be our best and to reach out then to others who need to be lifted.
To be an adult and still have to worry about the knives in your back is sad. Very recently I have been betrayed by someone I thought was a friend. Friendship is RARE and to be treasured. When you inserted the knife, there is no going back. Now I know who you really are and you have just lost a friendship.
