Let me tell you something about me.
I am real, big on loyalty.
It is second nature to me because I give what I want to receive. If I give you loyalty, I expect loyalty in return. However, what people have taught me, out here in these streets, is that a third of you do not have a loyal bone in your body. You are some disrespectful and disloyal human beings.
I came to find out that the ones I loved the most and was the most loyal to were the ones that did me the worst.
I mentioned this in the first book that most of you out here are opportunists.
You get all you can get from one person, then move right on to the next one, just to climb the ladder. Therefore, what you all have taught me is to be loyal to myself.
My loyalty will only go as far as yours go. I must do what I have to do to protect my peace and serenity. I’ve learned to put friends and associates in three categories: Constituents, Comrades and Confidants.
Constituents are all for themselves.
Comrades are for anybody with the same common goal as them.
Confidants are your ride or dies.
Bishop T.D. Jakes preached a sermon on it years ago. Listen to it. It will bless your life.
So, I no longer get angry when those people switch up on me. I just move right on around them. I don’t have to deal with you to be cordial. I will speak, and keep it pushing.
With that being said, I had a friend who had been hospitalized and was bedridden for a minute. This man had many, many friends. When this man was at his worst and couldn’t help himself, those friends were nowhere to be found. During the times that I was with him, I can count on one hand who all came to see him.
It was always the faithful few.
While he’s laying on his sick bed, tell me why people were calling his phone asking him for money? This man was laying on his sick bed and these people were asking for the hook up. They didn’t care that this man was sick. They wanted the plug to get back to work. I’m surprised that he even made any money with all the discounts he was giving out.
I’m like Whodini, FRIENDS, HOW MANY OF US HAVE THEM?
