    Would you rather eat alone
    Or eat with false friends
    Whose bellies you fill
    But give you no importance

    Would you rather eat alone in bed
    Or eat with false friends
    Who laugh at your expense
    And you feels warmth
    But it is all in your head

    Would you rather make home-made chocolate mix
    Or purchase a coffee tumbler
    And a pastry not worth a half a pence, or six
    And feed people who would
    Not throw you a crumb
    Let alone bake you sweet bread
    Filled with the finest rum

    Is it better to be alone to face your reality
    Or surround yourself with fake friends
    And tell yourself they are real
    Even thought you both know
    Your loneliness has clouded your clarity

    I would rather eat alone
    Face reality alone rather than depending on false friends.

    :)

    life is too short to be around people who make you unhappy.

    one needs to be their own best friend first.When you are happy and comfortable with yourself, one will never do or go behind any relationships which makes them unhappy.

    The reality is, we are all alone.

    Those who have genuine family are lucky and wealthy - these people are Guardian Angels!

    Exactly! They certainly won’t ignore red flags.

    Sometimes we need people around us...no one is genuine in this world..the situation decides them but at the same time they are not bad people.

    I always want 1-3 friends around me being away from my parents...I am unsure that I am lucky to have these friends but at least I have few who can call or ask me if I need something

    I guess this depends on how fortunate you are to be around people of the same wavelength.

    You are fortunate to have such friends (I’m sure your parents are relieved you are being taken care of, as you are taking care of your friends)


    But on flip side, following may apply to some people:

    There are relatives who insult my parents in Temple and are happy I went throughout bad incidents. However they show they have big heart by wanting to do me a favor by being my friend - they are cruel and toxic

    And I do not want to share a meal with such people!

    I totally understand your point of view. No offense.
