Some Quote I Found On The Internet

Philippines
September 8, 2011 2:32am CST
I just wanna share a quote I found on the net. The quote said "You don't really lose anything if you lose fake friends." The quote is pretty simple I like it. It's also true, you don't really lose any friends if they're fake. I've got fake people around me, even now and I can easily determine who they are. All I can do is be fake with them too. I don't really have a choice, I work with them. Do you meet some fake people everyday like me? What do you think of the quote?

Fake friends were not friends in the first place anyway. So loosing fake friends is not really a loss. In fact it could be a gain because you have freed up some space.

Nope, it isn't. You can even treat it as a gain. I'm really thinking of hanging out with people like these and using them instead. I wanna see how it works.

Great quote sweetie, but i don't see people as my friends. I don't trust them, neither do i believe anything they say. Keeps me out of trouble.

I remember what my uncle said to me, "Just agree to disagree." You can be the wolf in a lambs skin. Keep your principles intact while agreeing to whatever your fake friends say to you. Keeps you out of trouble indeed.

I am flexible and if they don't like me, it's fine. if they disappear...fine as well. I am also very transparent- I never pretend. So,if someone treated me good, I also treat them better. If someone treated me bad- sorry, I can also be as they are. have a good day jaiho®

That's straight forward. I like your personality. It's like saying "take it or leave it".

Wow sis Jai, you seems like a very strict sister to me. Never mind, i understand it. Indeed, we can't be too soft sometimes. I like your way of thinking....

Actually, we can be soft, or at least seem like it. Then when they turn soft at you, you strike with swiftness. I've read from somewhere that you have to kill your enemy completely. I'm not talking about killing literally here. I'm just talking about cutting off her resources so she won't be able to have her revenge again.

It is usual that in our daily life, we tends to meet many kinds of friends. When i was still working before, i meet many kinds of friends, which you can categories them as money friends or even fake friends. Only real friends are able to stick together with us nor matter we are rich or poor. And that category is very hard to be found. In fact, not every people able to find that real friend in life. Lucky for me that i managed to have found at least one real friend, who had been sticking with me for more than 20 years now...I am happy that i have this friend with me until now and hope it will last forever...hope you have meet your real friend, too...

I have real friends. It's also quite easy to determine who they are. When you're in need, take a look around and see who sticks by you.

Yes, that's the only way for us to determine and know who is the real friend. And that kind of friend is worth to be with us forever...

Yeah. Do you cherish your *real* friends? I bet you do. They're worth the trouble while the others, you can leave them standing at your doorstep.

In the first place, if they are fake, I won't even consider calling them friends. Anyway, see the positive side of things. They are there so that we become wiser and more diligent when it comes to choosing people to mix with.

Yep, I guess we learn from these people. Plus, they're on the losing end. If they honestly think they'll get by being that way then they're sorely mistaken. Getting by with other people nicely is still the right way to deal with other people, not by using them.

A wonderful quote and so true indeed .It is rather good to identify and even lose friends who are fake and of no help . Yes friend I do meet fake friends loke this often if not everyday . By God' grace when I am able to recognize them I do nothing to get rid of them . I am bit cautious about them and may be sometimes try to avoid them . If otherwise they play with me and hurt me and go away , I do feel bad but I rest in the arms of my God and I know He will never let me down . I don't act fake with them and forget and forgive them . It is true that as per the quote I realize that actually I have lost nothing by losing those fake friends . So why bother about it ? Good luck friend !

Yep, but the thing is, if you don't act like them -- if you don't hide your true feelings and intentions like what they're doing -- they'll read you like a book and manipulate you. They'll know what buttons to push and you'll end up being they're good 'ol toy they'd love to play with everytime they've nothing to do.

i also have a few fake people around here. fake people from my workplace. fake people in the neighborhood. and yes, we can only do is to be fake with them too because whether we like it or not, they are already part of our everyday lives.
• Philippines

Yep. Sounds kinda harsh but that's how we can evade them. We have to be on our toes identifying these people and knowing their base motives. To put it simply, we have to always be a step ahead of them.

I think that quote is very simple and very profound at the same time;the problem is that we aren't always capable of detecting fake friends,we are sometimes cheated by their attitude and we begin to trust them.Then the moment comes for them to show their real,ugly face and cause us a big disappointment,so it's essential to spot those fake friends as soon as possible and get rid of them before they hurt us.

They're really pretty easy to identify. Hanging out with them for a few minutes can give me a lot of information about them.

When I was working before in a BPO, there's a lot of fake people. Though there are really good and true people that you will meet there. I somehow agree with your quote. If your friend is not true to you, then he or she is not a friend to you at all. If you lose those fake friends, you don't lose anything at all.

I'm working in a BPO company currently. I know pretty much how you feel. You're right, there are a lot of fake people here. I'm quite surprised at first but I just got used to it. You just gotta admit what's happening in reality in order for you to learn. There were even instances where I'm not doing anything and yet there was someone bad-mouthing me. I don't know but BPO companies tend to attract these types of people.

For me yes it's not good you make your owned life enemy by Jehovah God watch full of what you doing he seen you when ever you are.

Yeah, okay.. I guess.

YES exactly frontvision.,It is really a fact for me too. I have met a lot of people like that but not everyday. I can handle situations so much, I just go with the flow. Yes we don't really have a choice but to act like everything is doing good.
• Philippines
8 Sep 11
Yep, definitely acting like everything is fine is the only way out. You can't really just blurt it out to them that they're fake since it'll seem inappropriate.

i think that is true. when you have fake friends, its just like having some enemies surround you. so if you lose these kind of people then you do not lose anyone at all. these people who pretend to be your friends simply do not need to be with you, you simply need a few of the truest friends there is and you would be lucky.

I don't like having to trust anyone too deeply except for my girlfriend. It's just too uncomfortable that way. I can trust anyone for the simplest things but when it comes to important things, I find it difficult to do so.
8 Sep 11
hi:) yes that quote is so true, well they never was your true friend anyway so there's really nothing to lose when they're gone, actually it's better because you might find someone that is true. I have to deal with that kind of people everyday at school, well I just smile back at them and have a chit-chat too sometimes, but I don't really open up, I usually treat them nicely but cold. G'day friend!
• Philippines
8 Sep 11
Yeah, that's also true. Knowing that they're fake doesn't mean that we can't be civil about it. If they can fake it, so do you. I also have to deal with these type of people at work. They treat you as their friend but only when they're in need.

"You don't really lose anything if you lose fake friends." Absolutely true.. I just hated a friend of mine right now.. She's a traitor. I was so good at her but then she just betrayed me.. I was really disappointed in her. Those times that we had will never be the same again. Ever. I already erased her in my list of friends. Anyway.. This qoute is really striking.. Nice one.

Yeah, once you know they're fake, it's better to just phase them out. It's a good thing you realize it because if not, she'll be lurking around you and you won't even know that you're only being used.
