According to the people I've been meeting and getting to know over the last few years....
definition of "friend" - backstabbing, hypocritical, lying, cheating, etc... I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
I've read the definition, and it fits two people in particular..perfectly!
I don't need any friends. I could live 500 lifetimes without them, and still be as happy and content as I am today. I have my husband, kids, family and some acquaintances.
My favorite bumper sticker: "The more I meet people, the more I like my dog." (It says cat, but I have a dog...so I changed it to dog.)
