et tu,brute-1

this is the first life lesson learned from the death story of Julius Caesar.

  1. choose your friends wisely

this is perhaps  the foremost lesson  that  can be gained.

“his dying words etu,brute gives ample testimony to how deep their bond ran.”

Julius  Caesar was killed by his best friend.

obviously,he did not choose his friends properly.

his dying words etu,brute gives ample testimony to how deep their bond,at least in Julius’  mind ran.

 “do we really know our friends?

which demands the question from us:do we really know our friends?

I’m not talking about their favorite color,number and social security number.

I’m talking about their insides,their personalities.

do we really know our friends,do we really know who they are?

“but many times,it’s not a question of knowing our friends.it’s knowing what’s right for ourselves.”

but many times it’s not a question of knowing our friends.it’s knowing what right for ourselves.

we have to ask ourselves:

does our friend have in mind what’s best for us?

do they care about our feelings?

is your friend really what’s right for you?

hope i have given you some food for thought.

happy shavout.

    Yes, friends are an important part of our lives. We need to choose them wisely.

    Friendships are complicated and not always so black and white. Sometimes, a person may feel hurt by their friend but must remember the deep bond they share and decide for themselves if they want to drop a relationship completely or wait it out until things work better.

    Thanks!
