Why My Best Friend And I Are Inseparable
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most of us envision or hope for that one friend we can count on through thick and thin. I am certain if you are of age, you have encountered many people, and some of those may have been considered to be good friends. However, you later discover all of your personal business is posted all over the internet and face book, etc. You also become cognizant of people staring at you and snickering. This scenario is an example of how a so-called friendship can go wrong.

Paranoia? May be, may be not. Either way, you have clearly observed an attitudinal change toward you within your associates. You discuss this concern with your friends, and the situation doesn’t abate, but rather, become more pronounced. You cry on your friends’ shoulders and wonder if you have been cursed, or as they say in some cultures, someone may have put a root on you.

Don’t ask me to explain the putting of roots on someone, I heard my grandparents talk about it. In simple language, I think it means, someone has such hate and contempt for you, they will do most anything to bring you down. For example, someone may make an image of you, usually a doll, and stick pin and needles in it, hoping the pain will be transferred to you. So much about that, because it is making me eerie. I only put it in here because some people actually believe that stuff.

Being in your present frame of mind, Mr. Depression will learn of your condition and come knocking. Mr. Depression is always on the prowl and will pounce on anyone who is susceptible. While I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the root man, Mr. Depression is known throughout the land, and his number one objective is to take you out.

As you ponder your predicament, you wonder how it all started. By using the process of elimination. You soon discover it was one of your so-called childhood friends behind the mission to bring you down. This is the person you would have given your very life for. The person you shared all of your most intimate secrets with. This is the one person beyond all others, you thought would have had your back through thick and thin.

As you chart your next course of action, you realize it would be foolish to confront your former friend, because with the amount of hatred she has for you, the outcome would not be positive. You therefore decide to just let it go and attempt to rebuild your image. You also realize it will be difficult because, when folks think of you in a certain way; it is sometimes hard to re-establish your image. If your former friend ask why you are no longer speaking, just say, I know the truth about you and what you have done to me.

I once had a similar situation happen to me. At that time, I told myself I would never put myself in a position to be deceived by a so-called friend again. I am happy to report that my dog and I, have never been in an argument, and he is ready to go hunting at anytime, day or night.

"Mr Depression will learn of your condition and come knocking" That's a very funny paragraph!
