The best way to weigh the validity of any friendship is to subject it to a test of time. You have those friends who call on you just to make sure you are alive and well; true friends. You have those friends who are always there for you no matter what the circumstances may be; loyal friends. You have those who humbly let you know when you’re right or wrong for your own good; real friends. Then you have those who only call on you when they need something from you, when you can be of some sort of service to them, when they envy you, when they’re in dire despair, and when they have absolutely no one else; those who place a heavy weight on you; fake friends. Be true to yourself at least by losing the dead weight, dust your shoulders off, kick your heels, say goodbye and keep it moving.
