American Friends

Postby DanielleNguyen » Thu Apr 10, 2014 3:35 pm

In America it is actually quite hard to find a good decent friend. Everyone, it seems strays down a bad path one way or another. That path is hard to get off of. I myself have been on many bad paths. I was homeless, I had been beaten, and anyone I trusted seemed to be ready to put that knife in my back. My husband is the first person I have actually ever really trusted in my life. I feel close to him and he's the only person who could make the problems and the world seem right just by holding me. He would protect me from everyone, even my friends. I know how my husband sees my personality. He says I am overly trusting and can't turn my back on anyone. He feels weary of it because when we dated and I lived alone I would bring complete strangers sitting on the side of the street into my home to give them a meal. But being homeless at a young age opens your heart up to others. Opening my heart up led to lots of mistakes. This is a writing about my friends, people I met along my life. Good people and bad. It serves as a warning on life in America. It's hard to be a good person to be a trusting person when there are snakes everywhere. (figuratively speaking not literally.)

BAD FRIENDS

April
I cut ties with her recently. She had cheated on her husband multiple times and she's pregnant a second time by someone who is not her husband. We grew up together. We played on the playground and were really close. I cut ties with her because of what she said to her mother who had cancer. She publicly humiliated her during her birthday party. The stuff April said to her mother revealed her mom's bad habits and sex life. Her mother's cancer was in the advanced stages. She died March 13.

Blaine (EX BOYFRIEND)
Blaine was the first man I ever trusted. He was kind, gentle, sweet. He loved his Pomeranian dog more than anything. He also taught me how to play video games. We lived together with another friend from high school, his sister, and his parents. We were young and stupid. We spent most of the days caring for his 11 dogs. We were dog breeders. Legit dog breeders not puppy mills. All the dogs were spoiled pampered brats. Then one day FBI showed up at the door and he was arrested for child pornography. We don't talk anymore. His family is convinced he's innocent but I don't know the truth. I felt a major betrayal. He never seemed like the type.

Keimei (Japanese American I dated for three months)
We were actually quite close. Then one day I got a call from his cellphone from another girl saying she was in a hotel room and wanted to know who I was. I told her the truth and told her she could keep him.

James (high school)
In highschool as I sat my purse down to work on my algebra he put his cigarettes in my purse because he knew the principal was going search him. He left them half way hanging from my purse and the principal saw them and called on me. It was very embarrassing. Thankfully, I am allergic to cigarettes. Just breathing smoke shuts down my lungs. My mom explained my allergy and how she knew 100% that they weren't mine. James approached me latter and apologized for what he did. We cut ties after he got my friend Brandy pregnant and ran.

Ashley. (high school)
We were friends all the way up to Junior year in high school. When she got on drugs I did all I could to stop her. She tried to skip class one day and I found her outside, threw her over my shoulder like a sack of potatoes and carried her into class with her having a temper tantrum. She punched me in the face, but I didn't hit back. Needless to say I told her off about how she was wasting her education and as she stormed out other class mates actually told me I did a good job trying to help.



GOOD FRIENDS

Brandy
I remember when James got her pregnant in high school. Lots of girls (who liked James) called her a liar and cornered her in the bathroom. I tried to protect her and fended the girls off til she got by. She to this day takes care of her daughter alone. James isn't in his child's life. Brandy is a good mom.


Julia
Shes my neighbor and is a Mormon. She is always praying and is a good mother and wife. She is a positive role model and the only person I ever trusted to watch my one year old.


Anthony (my husband)
He's my very best friend. He's supports everything I do and when I cry he can fix it just by holding me. He is really good to me.





Most of the time you will find bad friends instead of good ones. You'll have many people who will use you or step on you. Finding genuine friends is actually quite difficult in America.
