"You find out who your true friends are at your lowest."
Is it just me or this sentence gets used 100% wrong? Almost all the time, too. Somehow the main case would always be that this person's fortune turned out well and it took him or her to places, leaving his or her friends behind; suddenly stuck in a rut, fortune over, friends never really left and this person now has the balls to approach them back. Why? Because he or she stands bare at this point on.
The funny thing is that this person might not even realise what he or she did, and possibly never learn from it. Forever riding in her fortune, and missing all the points.
It feels like a wrong but needed recipe for human nature, ain't it? It's weird. It's like a person thought he bought chocolate chip cookies, which turns out to be the devil's mole, raisins. But turns out again, that this person finds satisfaction to raisin cookies.
How did I end up writing that last sentence? You tell me, how do you always end up saying the first sentence?
