Friend O' Foe

Hello everyone ... the day is usual ... yesterday spoke to an old friend (actually was roommate) of mine. She is a nice girl but very confused most of the time. Nothing to blame on her .... I had a very wrong opinion about her before we were roommates ...I heard people say she was weird ... and yes ... I kinda did after all this in my brain ... you know she seemed lost most of the time! But only after knowing her I came to know ... that deep down she was a nice girl and she seemed like that due to some family / health problems. On the other hand a girl who I thought was really nice ... turned out to be exactly opposite ... very dirty ... unhygienic habits ... back stabbing and loads to add! I am not saying that I am perfect ... but I am a very frank person ... and don't have different faces with different people! "Appearances are deceptive" ....I believe it is very true ..!! You never know who is gonna turn to be your friends and who your enemies!

When people say that a person should be happy if s/he has at least 5 good friends in their lifetime ... I never believed it! But yes ... looking at my life ... I can hardly name 5 people I can fully trust .. other than family ... well maybe a little more now ..but lets see ... you never know what could turn up!!!

Well ... now I feel I am making new friends in this blog world ... no age/caste/creed barriers ... just as we say!! I sometimes think ... I am being more defensive when it comes to accepting people in my life and trusting them ... maybe because I have just met too many wrong people and trusted them!! But yes .. I am trying to let go of the past and sculpt a better future with the right tools as my friends/family!!

Well ... many thanks to anyone who considers me as a blog-friend!!

    I can totally relate to what u r saying.......
    Have met too many different kinds of people and am not as naive any more as I was when I was 21. :):)
    But I do thank God that I DO have 3 friends that I can trust my life with. And i think the number is going to remain 3....

    I am sure going to meet a lot of people and like a lot of them too, but dont expect to create the kind of friendship I share with these 3.:):):

    I have really being enjoying blogging so far...and Hope to make good friends here...:))))))

    Your blog post reminds me of the saying"Never judge a book by its cover"...there is more to a person other than plain looks...i always felt plenty with few trusted friends than 100 of no good friends..
