Not All Of Them

It's magical how a certain series of unfortunate events can still come up with some nice surprises. Picture three friends who have their own personal problems to battle with coming together and finding solace in each other's unwavering trust and consoling sympathy. Imagine them, talking their hearts out in Indian sit position in the middle of the Sunken Garden. It’s the stuff mushy barkada movies are made of, right?

I’ve always been good friends them. You know, we dine out together every now and then, especially after genmeets; we’re partners-in-crime; we have the same frequency; we have a common addiction to Desperate Housewives, etc. However, I never thought that it would come to a point where we’d have each other to rely on when the world that used to be so peaceful starts falling apart. When God closes a door, He opens a window. And what a view this new window had.

There is no intriguing twist to this piece, unlike my two previous posts. I just had to write something about them. Because you see, I have been reminded that in a big set of so-called friends, not all of them are true – even those who say they are. Not all of them stick with you through the bad times. Not all of them can let you be yourself. Not all of them trust you the way you trust them. Not all of them believe in you. Not all of them will go out of their way to help you. Not all of them can tell straight to your face what’s wrong with you – which we really need from time to time. Not all of them feel for you. Not all of them will try to understand you when everyone else is being so judgmental. Not all of them only have your best intentions.

Yes, not all of your friends are as true as what they seem. Still, it is surprising to discover that some of them actually are. And you’ll realize just that at the perfect moment, just when you needed them the most.

Sa mga nakalimot na ng Math diyan, tandaan na sa Venn Diagram, everything that doesn't belong to any circle belongs to the Universal Set. Doon, sama-sama tayo. Maraming maraming salamat. Our Lips Are Sealed.. haha! =)
