Not a fool...

If there is one thing I have learned and found to be very valuable in my life, it's the ability to KNOW when I am being "played". We ALL get played every now and again and it sucks. But, we move on because it's the way of the world. Some people just find it easier to play than to be real.

Let me make this clear, I am NOT in the market for fake friends. If you can't BE my friend or don't even WANT to be; it's cool. I don't need you to pretend we're friends. If something happened and you feel we're NOT friends anymore, let's agree to disagree and move on. I've got no time for silliness. I'm busy and most of the people I know, with the exception of a few, are very busy people as well. So, why kid ourselves? WHY continue on pretending?

I KNOW who my real friends are and there was a time, I'll admit, even within the last few years, that I tried to be a type of person I'm not to fit with certain others. But, that's not me and the people they are don't want to BE friends with who I am and THAT is fine.

So, essentially, what THIS blog is, is NOT a woe is me cry for attention, it is a letter to all those reading it, who may be just "playing nice" with me, to give you the green light to let our FAKE friendship go.

In the end, I know the people who will be standing by me and I know they are people I can depend on. I realize who and what I am; I know my brutal honesty can sometimes come across as an intent to hurt, but if being honest hurts, I can't help that.

Do me a favor, be honest with me and yourselves and step away from the people you are just "pretending" with, including me. We'll ALL be better for it.
