These words helped me through a lot: "Everybody isn't your friend. Just because y'all hang around one another and y'all laugh or cry together, doesn't mean they'll be there for you at the end of the day when ish really hits the fan. Just because they say that they "got your back," doesn't mean they won't have your back long enough to stab you in it. People pretend really well and jealousy never lives far. Not everyone in your circle, is in your corner and that's factual. When all is said and done, REAL situations expose FAKE people. Pay attention and react accordingly."
