Happy Monday Yall!! As we enter into the Holiday Season, we experience feelings of gratitude, joy, and love. One thing I have noticed is that people are celebrating "Friendsgiving", which I think is soooooo damn awesome! Aint nothing like getting together with friends!! I was talking to my good good girlfriend, I call her Zsa Zsa because she is stylish and sassy! We started talking about friendship. The way we defined friendship back in our teens is probably different from our definition today. And obviously that comes with age and experience. Sooooooo.... cue up your favorite song about friendship and let's hashtag get into it Sis!!!
I am not going to waste time defining friendship, you can do that yourself. I wanna talk about the kinds of friends we have and the kinds of friends we are!!! We all have a whole "Squad" and that makes for a good time. But here are just a few types of friends I have and let me say real quick, they are in no specific order. This is how they popped in my head!! Start thinking about the kind of friend you are to people...
The Legal Eagle: This friend knows all the rules. This is the friend you call when you really need to dissect a situation and look at it from all angles. She probably knows exactly where to punch somebody in order to knock them completely out. Don't sleep on her. She be knowing stuff. She gives good advice.
The Straight No Chaser: Some may find her offensive, but listen sis, somebody has to bottom line a situation.She says what we all are thinking. While her approach may be blunt, you have to appreciate and respect her honesty. With this friend, there is no grey area. You don't have to guess how she feels. She has no problem telling you, or anyone else for that matter. And she is unapologetic in her delivery. Take her bluntness or leave it; she is good with it and has no plans to change!!
The Diary: This is the friend who knows you best, not longest, but best. This is the friend who can read your mind and knows how you will you react to situations. She knows when to step in and will help without hesitation. This is friend who can keep a secret without being told it is a secret. You can tell her about all of your ratchet activities and she will not judge you. Hell, she will probably ask why you didn't include her! She is the friend you have told you were going to leave ol' boy 1000 times and each time she acted as if it were the first time you said it. You gotta love your diary!
The Glue: This is the friend that is a friend to everyone. She knows everyone well and has a personality that attracts many. She is always pleasant and people just like to have her around. She has good energy and always will find the good in us all. The party just is not the same without her and her slightly bossy self!!
The A-1: Well hell, do we really need to discuss this?? She is the one that all you have to do is call... she ain't asking NO questions, other than "WHERE YOU AT?" It does not matter if you are rocking or rolling, SHE IS IN THERE! Periodtt!! I cannot lie, I got a couple of these!!! This is the good good girlfriend that you aint gon let too many crack slick or talk shit about you in her presence before somebody gets a chin check. She prolly has bail money stashed just in case yall get picked up while yall out there laying hands on people.
I would like to think I am combination of these friends. Real talk, these are the kinds of friends we all need. Regardless as to the type of friend, we know their heart is in the right place and that the genuinely care. We also have to understand that people cannot give us something they don't have.
Everyone is NOT YOUR FRIEND. BE CLEAR ON THAT SHIT!!!
EVERYONE ON YOUR TEAM IS NOT CHEERING FOR YOU. TRUST AND BELIEVE.
Take Care Of You,
To all of my Friends:
(Singing Loudly) AND IF YOU THREW A PARTYYYYY AND INVITED EVERYONE YOU KNEW....YOU WOULD SEE THE BIGGEST GIFT WOULD BE FROM
ME AND THE CARD ATTACHED WOULD SAY
T H A N K YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND!!
