Oh man oh man… boy do I relate to this quote. You get to a point in life where you realize, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve known a person, if they show no interest in your well being, why keep them around? Some people like to think that they NEED to keep certain friends, or acquaintances around simply because they’ve known them their whole life, but my friends, that is not true. You don’t need people around you who aren’t going to help you grow as a person. If they’re not around to lift you up when you’re down, or cheer you on for your successes, they’re not worth associating with. These are ‘empty friends‘. They’re there for the fun, the laughs, the good times, but when you truly need them, they’re nowhere in site. Make sure you associate with people who want to better themselves, and better YOU and help keep your friendship/bond ALIVE. They’re the ones who will be there for you during your toughest times, and will be your biggest supporters throughout your successes.
