Then they were probably never a real friend.

I would suggest hanging around with a different type of people then.  There are nice and honorable people out there.  I have found them.  There seems to be not enough of them to go around, but they exist.  They tend to hang out together and avoid the less honorable people.

You're probably just hanging around with the wrong people, or work where you have to deal with those type of people constantly.  In your line of work, you deal with the worst of society, so its easy to become cynical.

Me, I will talk to almost anyone, and have met people of all different races, creeds, religions, colors, nationalities, etc.  One thing I have noticed is that some people live or work in very negative environments and that effects their outlook on life and on friends.  People who work in the government, or are poor, or work for certain companies or in certain industries tend to be very cynical and be surrounded by negative and sometimes abusive people.

I have seen people flourish after changing who they hang out with to more supportive and caring people.

If your "friends" would all betray you, then perhaps you should look somewhere else to find friends.  And your neighborhood and workplace may not be the best place to look if they are all negative people and/or people who are not honorable.

I think you have friends, you treat them, you do knowing them and there is always  one you can trust..but if  it is about secrets, you don't have to trust no one or someone, you have to kept it for yourself  and  then it is a secret. But if you want or need someone to talk to..then you have to trust someone  and that someone can be your best friend. That is a friend  who always you can hang on his shoulder. I have a good and best friend since i was 24 yrs old, and we still are good and best friends. Oh%20My .....Correct me if i am wrong
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.

True.  A real friend will never betray you.

Of course, this has gotten me thinking about how we define friends in the first place.

Possible definitions:
  1. Someone who is supportive of you and helps you grow and develop and reach your full potential in life.
  2. Someone who truly cares about you.
  3. Someone who you hang around with and have fun with.
  4. Someone who covers for you when you have done something you shouldn't have.
  5. People you hang around with because you work with them or attend the same functions (church, etc.) or have the same interests.
I'm sure there are more definitions, but those are the ones I think of.  And people can be more than one of the above to you.

I would call people who fall under #1 and/or #2 as friends or acquaintances depending on the bond we have, #3 as buddies, #4 as a partner-in-crime and #5 as acquaintances and possibly buddies.

I got this from a friend and it makes me feel great. And  you will think ..wow it's just a card with a bear hanging on e few balloons...and a few words...
 
And you know something ...I don't know her in person and she doesn't know me in person.  And that is why friends are for to know each other.

Poem posted by Shucander:

Pledge of Friendship

When you are sad
    I will dry your tears
When you are scared
    I will comfort your fears

When you are worried
    I will give you hope
When you are confused
    I will help you cope

When you are lost
    And can't see the light
I shall be your beacon
    Shining ever so bright

This is my oath
    I pledge till the end
Why you may ask
    Because you're a friend
* The most important thing in

A real friend is better than diamonds, they shine when you are in the dark and sparkle when you are down, there are invaluable.
