My good friend, Amanda Morton-King, back in the UK shared this thought on her Facebook page and it just hit the spot.
SOME PEOPLE AREN'T LOYAL TO YOU ... THEY ARE LOYAL TO THEIR NEED OF YOU ... ONCE THEIR NEEDS CHANGE, SO DOES THEIR LOYALTY.
We both value loyalty and give our loyalty to our friends and expect loyalty from our friends. What we value even more is that our friends are constant - they don't blow hot and cold. Additionally we value honesty.
We have made some good friends in our time in Cyprus, and they have proved loyal to us in the way we hope we have been loyal to them.
Acquaintances come and go but friendship means something to us, and we hope it means something to you. This all explains why we are selective in our choice of friends.
Food for thought, we think.
