Failing The Friendship Litmus Test

People evolve or not, and I’ve lost zero interest in making an effort to stay in contact with those who can’t respect my individuality and support of President Trump, treating me like I’m a brainwashed lone wolf recruiters wet dream for Al-Qaeda.

These past 3 and a half years, have also me taught me how certain friends or family members don’t make the best backup group material in the world, when they refuse to concede any good generation in those you believe in. But you glaringly fail the friendship litmus test, when you actually have the gaul to decry a friend’s political beliefs as dumb, when you haven’t even uttered how ANTIFA are a bunch of vigilante Punisher wannabes in hoodies tweaked out on Crystal Meth yet.

Last, you lose all motivational zeal to pick up the phone, when your parents, siblings or old friends call you for old time sake, knowing how the past 3 and half years and counting has only reinforced your depressingly nagging suspicion about how these people who are supposed to love your own special brand individuality, never valued your intelligence or capacity for critical thought very much in the 1st place, especially when they go out of their way, to make you feel bad about yourself, for trusting your own instincts, dreaming big and for rising above their limited, cubicle contained imaginations of what you’re capable of achieving without their huffy, belabored, no longer sought after fawned over approval at all.
