Who is a friend?

“A close friend is honest and speaks from the heart with good intentions. They tell you what you need to hear in a way that you can hear rather than gossip behind your back. A quality friend is trustworthy, not only are your secrets safe with them, but so are your vulnerability, fear, and weirdness.16 May 2022″ Google search

I once had a very close friend from Ireland. Then I discovered she criticised my accent not directly but through other people who knew me. More Seriously she was incapable of not telling lies. For example she told us that her husband was suicidal to get us to help her in various ways

After my husband died she came to see me and said to me, men don’t go to your blog to tead your poetry. They go to pleasure themselves on your photograph.

I suppose it with a compliment since I was 70 years old with no hair ;beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I couldn’t stop laughing but I thought it was sexist And if we write books and have our photograph on cover are ee worried that that was drive people mad with lust? There are plenty of images in the media or even on marks and Spencer’s website that are a lot more attractive than my photograph.

So you can have a mixed relationship with somebody who is like that but really you can’t trust them.
