We Are All Flawed

In today’s world, friends are MORE flawed than ever before. Yet to have friends, you have to be open to truly treating them as family. The same way you fight with a parent or sibling and make peace with them the next day, month, or year…you have to accept your friends the exact same way. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself without friends. Everyone is flawed, so don’t ever expect your friends to be flawless. Only the Creator is flawless. Jealously, rivalry, hypocrisy, frugality, and envy are natural feelings found in siblings — so don’t be shocked to see the same traits in your friends. Familiarity DOES breed contempt. Sometimes when people get close to you and discover how much alike you really are, they turn bitter knowing you have something more to offer than them, or opportunities not offered to them. Yet deep down, a lot of those people that hurt you the most could be the first to die for you. — Suzy Kassem
