I’ve learned that no matter what you do,
Or how nice, sweet and kind you are,
When hardships come,
You’ll always be pulled in different directions.
In the midst of this pull,
You may discover that one side are masquerading as friends and family,
They’re loud and very clear about being there for you,
However, when the time comes you find out they’ve been silently judging,
And waiting for you to mess up.
One the other side are the silent ones,
Who sincerely love and appreciate you for who you are.
The ones who would gently offer a helping hand,
Without a hint of blame,
So whatever you’re going through,
Always make sure you get pulled into their direction.
