Friendship: Check Your Circle – Podcast Episode 05

Transcript summary of today’s episode:

So I was out in the streets today and a stranger came up to me for help. It wasn’t for no money neither was it to help a stranger with his baggage. It was personal — I rather not tell. I told him what he should’ve known. Next, he said: “Even my closest friend hides this service from me,” I asked him, “your closest friend?” He answered affirmatively, “Yes!” Throughout the time I was on the spot I met him till this moment, I couldn’t stop thinking about how so many of our friends say they love us or they say they are family, but can’t give the littlest favor we ask from them. They hide benefits from us while they throw smiles on our faces. They want all the riches. They want all the respect. They want to be above humanity while their family and close ones get stuck in the gutter and misery.

The message is: Check yourself. Check your close ones. Nobody loves you like you love yourself. Nobody can treat you like the way you would treat yourself. Check yourself. Check your circle, check the bond within your circle. Be sure to be safe and truly loved. If not, get up out of there.
