I’m so excited 2017 is in less than three days but I’m more excited because I’ll be with my family. Spent Christmas by myself so I’m looking forward to seeing them.
This is the first time I am experiencing what I’m about to share.
There is this girl, let’s call her BEM. She was my colleague till her services were no longer needed and she was let go.
Anyways, most of my others colleagues did not like her and she was talked about because of how she always lied, talked way too much and was never content.
We had to work together on a show so that’s how we got talking and sort of became close. Most of the time she talked about other people & it was hardly ever positive stuff.
A few months ago there was some rumour going on about me and I was wondering who would cook up something that silly.
Last Friday, I found out BEM was the originator and I was upset with myself. Mostly because I had been warned about her and even as we were friends I saw the fruits she bore and I ignored it.
She always owed people, living above her income, getting involved with a particular group of people just for money, she talked a lot especially when not necessary. There’s more but I’ll just stop here.
I saw all of this I tried talking to her but she never takes serious conversations seriously so I told myself as long as we see just at the office and I don’t follow her to places, I’ll be fine. I didn’t even think she would cook up and spread false gist about me seeing as not a lot of people wanted to be friends with her.
She owes me money and has not paid me back and it’s over two weeks now. I doubt I’ll even get the money back knowing how she is so I decided to let it go & leave her to God.
What I was most thankful for was that I don’t have secrets and my life is pretty simple and straightforward. If I had secrets and used to share with her, I’m sure she would have added or subtracted or fabricated the whole story.
This experience has reminded me that we need to be careful of the people we call friends. Not everyone is happy with your success and progress.
We need to check the fruits we are bearing and try to change the way we behave that do not speak well of us as well as check the fruits our friends bear. This is important to avoid situations like this.
Have you ever had a friend act this way or worse ?
Please share your story in the comment section and also how you handled the situation.
