Fishing for the real people

Communication is the key to any relationship. Whether it be your boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, or even your family. There are times in our life that unexpected things happen between friends or so-called friends. Sometimes we can’t help it, especially because it was inevitable. Times like these are when you know who your real friends are.

You can make friends with anyone but the challenge is to find a true friend. Let’s say you stop speaking for a while -you know that what you told them is safe even if you guys aren’t on the best terms.

If you don’t talk about issues you have with your friends they will never be solved. Sometimes it’s something so petty that can ruin a friendship. For example, I feel no girl or guy is worth losing a friend over. This may be because of how I was raised. Never let a girl come between you and your boys. Same thing goes for the ladies, never let a man come between you and your girls. It never fails that when your significant other hurts you, you always go running back to your friends asking for advice. Your friends will always be there for you IF you chose them wisely.

Some people are raised believing that you can’t trust people outside of your family with secrets. But then there are some things that you just can’t tell your family and its better that they just don’t know. The thing is you can’t tell all your friends. You need to know who can trust.

How do you know who to trust? Just because they confide in you doesn’t mean you have to tell them things. Maybe you need more time to feel comfortable with them in order for you to open up more.

I am one of those people who like to keep things to themselves I have very few close friends that I can tell everything to and I like it that way. It’s hard to find people you can trust. Some people that I though I could trust I really couldn’t.

I have met a lot of shady people here at Cabrini. They act like a friend to your face but the minute you leave the room they talk about you. The scent of your cologne hasn’t even left the room and they are already running their mouths.

I’ve learned in the past two years that communication is very important. I have a real bad problem trusting people on this campus. There are few I trust, and some I’m still getting to know. I hope to leave Cabrini with a handful of real friends. If not, so be it.
