Welcome any rough phase in your life with open arms.That's when you truly figure out your genuine friends!
They are the ones who respond to your messages, lift your calls, repay the money you are owed and empathise with you every moment of your struggle.
The rest are probably the ones who kept you company when you were knee deep in wealth and bliss. They find it convenient to look the other way, acknowledging you only for what you have and not who you are.
Life, in that sense, is a fickle beauty but a great teacher and leveller! Embrace the reality and rise above the illusion.
- Aravind Ravi Sankar
