It’s Okay To Be A Little Cynical

Have you ever been betrayed by a friend(s) before?

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve started to realize that the quality of the people in my life is more important than the quantity. I don’t have a lot of friends — but you know what? I’m totally okay with that. The few people I do trust are ones who’ve really earned it. Having screwed over by people I thought had my back made me not to trust easily. Bad memories and betrayal have made me more careful about who I let in my life. I don’t just let anyone in that easily anymore, and that’s a good thing. You can’t depend on a lot of people to stay loyal, to have your back and to keep your secrets — I’ve learned that from experience, and it’s okay to be a little cynical.


A handful of good friends means more to me than all the not-so-true friends in the world. I’ve evaluated the kind of people I really want in my life and realized that they’re actually pretty hard to find. I value having a small circle of friends as opposed to having too many acquaintances to keep track of. No one needs to know that much about me and I don’t care about being liked by everyone (there will always be someone who won’t like you regardless how good of a person you are — true story).


Back then, I used to trust people easily and tell them every single detail that’s happening in my life. But now I’ve learned that being a tad cynical is okay. It means that I’m just being extra careful about who I spend my time with. I’m okay with not telling others all there is to know about me.
So yeah, I’m not gonna make this post a long love story. I know some of you can relate to this. My main point is for you to be careful too in picking the right people to trust and to be friends with. A large number of friends isn’t necessary as long as you know that you’re being loved by genuine people in your life. You also have yourself and God. In the end, you always have your own back and His. ❤️
A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret. – Proverbs 11:13
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6
