Empty Calories

14 Nov

Empty calories (so called bad friends) are a measurement of the energy present in high-energy foods (people in your circle) with poor nutritional profiles (cruel intentions).

This post may seem to be about bad friends however, it isn’t.

I am completely nauseous of people calling, texting, Skyping and Facebook messaging me about how they are over a certain friend or how their friends are bad.

Here it is people… It’s you!

It absolutely can’t be everyone else who’s the bad friend. If you’re constantly having friendship issues whether its trust, dependability or being mistreated then it’s something wrong with you and how you pick your friends and your expectations.

These so called bad friends are like empty calories good for the moment but eventually you’re going to crash hard, end up fat and lonely. Kind of like beer, butter and candy no one is complaining when you’re indulging in the joys of said friend but once things don’t go as you would like then, it’s your friend with the ill intentions.

This is why so many people are unnecessarily fat. Take some responsibility.

I was on the phone with we’ll call him Brazil (after the obese moron who sued McDonald’s for making him fat) and it seems like he calls me every week about a sweet friendship gone sour.

After the first and second story I have become less supportive I realized I was getting a headache from his delusional woes. I had to nip it in the bud by calling him out on his own personal choices.

You pick your friends like you pick your fruit you can get mad at the tree if you get a bad apple every time you go to the orchard, maybe you should learn how to pick apples properly.

I’ve notice that people don’t like taking responsibility for their own incompetency; people are so quick to blame others for pseudo-malice incidents rather than admitting maybe it’s them with the problem.

If you notice yourself having problems with everyone around you stop and ask yourself what it is about you that is off.

I honestly believe no one “need” friends but it’s perfectly cool to invite certain people into your life. However, friendship is a lot like dating where as you don’t expect nothing of no one that you are not already. You are to surround yourself with like people or people whom you can benefit from.

Think about this, caloric intake (choosing friends) must be balanced to maintain a proper weight (sanity), so sedentary individuals (you) who are eating fewer calories in an effort to lose weight should not substitute foods high in vitamins and minerals (quality people) with empty calorie foods (draning friends.)

It’s ok to be by one’s self or have few friends whom you can understand and deal with vice versa. Just understand stand you can’t blame others for being who they are look at yourself first.

Start by stop calling everyone your “friend!”

    Very true what you are saying — but, most people aren’t enlightened enough to take responsibility yet. They have much evolving to do personally first.

    this post is so true! i believe that everyone should self-reflect and take responsibility for their own behavior. it can be hard to take an honest look at one’s self sometimes, but really, it’s the only way to self improve. if everyone did this, the world be a much more peaceful place 😉
