After being broken down because his friends have not been loyal to him, he sat down to think. He said to himself, life they say is made up if several ups and downs, highs and lows, positive energy and negative energy but through all these you have to rise up and bounce back when things are not moving the way you expect them to be.
But could this be possible? Could he have practiced what he just said?
A man once lived in a neighborhood which was really undeveloped. There were no proper roads, potable water, educational and health facilities and several basic needs of individuals. This man was lucky enough to be handed over some amount of gold dust by his grand parents. He immediately travelled to work hard with the mindset if making some amount of money to help develop his community since the conditions there were appalling.
God being so good, he secured a job as soon as he got there and started working tirelessly. But something happened. He trusted his friends by giving them money (financial aid ) to develop the community while he is away .They Rather spent the money on their selfish gains hoping for great returns. They kept him Happy by sending him fake pictures of roads and amenities but there wasn't any.
Due to this, he trusted them more and gave them money to build a house for him. He spent hours gathering such amount of money but it was not used for its purpose since his friends we were just a pain in the neck.
Unfortunately, he was deported on one day. He was "shipped" back to his community at the expense of not allowing him to go grab any of his stuff. On reaching home, he realised his friends have not been loyal thereby giving him such thoughts.
Life was starting to get difficult after all this massive blows to his face. Making it very difficult to feed his wife and children. He was also ejected from his house after his rent was over. He had no other option than to go back and stay with his family. Family was also one hell of a trouble. They made living with them something else even though they knew his plight, instead of compromising they rather made allegations and stood against him; making mockery of him always.
His wife started to complain every day saying she can't lead a life of such poverty so she started seeing men outside, going for parties and several places where she shouldn't be. Shee finally left him alone and went to stay with one of the men she used to see them and the man had to take care of the children alone. The man had to push barrows, become a mate of a driver and also do several penniless jobs to be able to feed his children and himself.
One day, a friend picked him up from one of his works, did you a favour and gave him a job but little did he know that, as the man was giving his friends money to do the amenities, he knew they were not so loyal hence he built an industry on a large scale elsewhere without the knowledge of his friends. He frequently visited to check up on the Industry and as such he knew there were no roads and amenities but he rather wanted to know how his wife would react when they are in times of hardship and truly she was not the best type of woman to be with.
He promoted his new Friend to being his CEO and his own friends lost since they had no second chance if making it right.
You will have to hold the back of your friend, keep them company, push them when they are climbing rather than pulling them down. Don't be a stumbling block that will block their path to success but rather a pillar to which they can rely upon. Be the friend that everyone would live to be with not the one that ni one wants to see .
Thank you all for your Time.

Trusting someone nowadays is not an easy thing to do. We may be tested by the people around us even to our dearest ones but we need to remain kind to everybody. Thank you for your ideas mickey. You're a great person. Keep it up.
