“Everybody (but her) could see right through him” and he knew it! Sometimes you can see what others can’t and vice versa. Such was the case with one of my girlfriends. Love can cause blindness. Nothing beats the annoyance of people who say one thing and do another. We call them hypocrites! My friend was heads over heels, giddily in love with this guy. Supposedly, he loved her but his words and actions didn’t match. After I witnessed his last deceitful acts, “I was done; well done at that. You could just stick a fork in me!” It was excruciating for me to see her suffer. Because of my love for her, I felt her pain as well. I only hope that she has enough courage to “be done” with his waywardness. Seasoned, I realize that walking away is easier said than done. Many of us have stayed in some situations much too long. My heart, empathy, and dedication remain with my friend as she sorts out her life. Only time will tell if she continues to endure and tolerate his hypocritical shenanigans! As our friendship has stood the test of time, I will be by her side forevermore no matter what – as she has never left me. After all … “That’s what friends are for!”
