The People You Trust The Most May Be The People Who Let You Down The Most

The amount of time you put in for these people is actually disappointing in the end, when they really didn't care at all in the first place.


At first, everything seems fine. Everything seems okay. Your life is content. Growing up, you have these people who stick by you claiming they have your back in anything and everything. You learn to trust them.

You grow up to be an adult. You are old enough to figure things out. You can understand the grown-up decisions you or others could possibly make. You can help yourself when something comes up.

Remember the people you could trust the most, through thick and thin? Yeah, they forgot about you. They pushed you off that cliff. They stabbed your back in many ways. They got so caught up in their own perfect lives that they started to separate from you.

Unfortunately, this probably happens to all of us. We go through phases ourselves. We transition, we change, we do a lot. I get that, but you have to remember who you have.

We win some, and we lose some.

Recently, I decided to detach myself from the current drama that was happening between a group of people I considered close to me. We grew up together, almost as if we were related. The word "family" came up a lot.

Then, shit hit the fan and the pain was endless for a while. We were supportive of one another through the recent losses and obstacles. We pulled ourselves together and said that we would always be there for each other.

Forget that. A few years later and I look at these people like they are strangers. I do not recognize them anymore. The girl who helped me off the water slide in Disney World when I was only 5 years old now subsides in her own guilt in life and shoots me the death stare whenever she sees me. The girl who always had my back whenever something came up does not give me the time of day anymore.

The thing is, I honestly don't know what I did wrong to deserve that kind of treatment.

They went through journeys themselves. They had their own set of battles to fight, and I was there to support them, just like they did with me. But nothing was returned. Not even a "thank you". Not one thought of kindness. Something was set off, and they just cut ties.

But guess what? I do not care. At all, actually.

What's meant to be, will be, and I thank God that He laughs when I make plans with people. Deep down inside, I know they live with that guilt, but I live with none. However, it does suck when you grew up together, trusted each other, partied, hung out, spent lots of time together... and it's all gone, for nothing.

You feel me? The people you trust the most may also be the people who let you down the most. If that's the case, cut it off. Get rid of the toxic.

I did.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
