fairweather friends

you'll find out your true friends eventually. there are some friends and lovers (and even family) who will only be there for you in the good times when you are fit and happy and gainfully employed. then there are those that if you are having a down time, or are ill, or are between jobs or unsatisfied at work, they will judge and distance themselves and prove they are no friends at all. i've had a lot of boyfriends that proved they were the fairweather friend variety. you have to be able to take the good times with the bad.

i watched a documentary on a cancer researcher who got cancer over the weekend. of course that's going to be the worst time in someones life. and her family kicked her out of the home and didn't speak to her for the final years of her life. that's just awful. how can people be so badly behaved? i think i do not have family like that and i do not have a terminal illness so of course i can be grateful for my situation. i think everyone has the fears of growing older and being alone. if they do not have children (or have ungrateful, ill or children who die young).

whenever you meet someone and welcome them into your life... don't you kind of wonder if they would be there for you, no matter what?
