just keep on twisting that knife in my back
have you ever felt betrayed? turned on, by one of your friends? blind sided by your wing man (or women)? chances are, you have. because we're all humans, we all have the ability to hurt the ones we love. but i wonder if this type of relational infraction can actually bring people closer together? hear me out.
most of the time...even with our friends, we keep things fairly surface. we have a certain comfort level with certain folks and we don't typically go beyond that point. in times when one side has hurt the other, it will typically bring on a deeper level of communication, and then vulnerability in the apology or the forgiveness, which will lead to a deeper friendship. see where i'm going?
so i guess the big "if" is weather or not you're the type to talk things out when you get hurt or have hurt someone....or if you just ditch out because you don't know how, or even have a desire to go there with another person. if you're one of the brave souls the risk a bit of human connection....well, i imagine you just might end up with some life long friends that you know you can get through thick or thin with. i'd say that's a reward worth risking something for. you think?
