Some things just do not need to be said! Most do not deserve a response. And then there are those that do not deserve repeating.
We all have that person in our lives that we tell everything to and then there are those that we know we cannot tell anything to. The older I get the more I learn that there are just some things that do not need to be said or repeated.
I am no longer 17 or 20 or even 35 years old... so why put energy into what he or she said about you? I am a pretty good judge of character and I can say that I know who I can trust with what information and those who are simply smiling in my face. I know those who sit in closed doors and talk about me like a dog and then tell people that I suck at what I do and then tell me to my face that I am great at what I do. I am not oblivious. But these are the people you pray for and allow God to work on them. God said He would make your enemies your footstools. So just wait on Him to intervene.
Now that I am almost 40 (2.5 years to go) I can count those I truly trust on ONE hand and I still have fingers left. Sad but true. So when I hear songs like "No New Friends" I have to laugh because without my New Friends, I might not have any friends at all.
So after 30 something years of interacting with the world I can say that I have made some substantial connections. I know a lot of people. However I do not call all of those people friend. There are that group that have transcended the friend stage and have become like family (F.A.M) and the know who they are and they have always treated me in kind.
So in the end the lesson I have learned and I now pass on to others is that everyone who enters your life is not meant to stay. Not everyone who enters your life is meant to be called friend. There are those who you just hangout with and there are those who you travel with. Then there are those you know will be there when you fall, when you fail, and your forget! The last group is the group you hold on to!
