Friendship, which ought to be a mutualistic kind of relationship most often than not, ends up being parasitic with one gaining more than is due whiles offering little or nothing in return.
American rapper Lil Wayne has taken note of that kind of ‘friendship’ and has devised a shrewd means to identify friends who are only in for the lollipop but won’t stick with you when the tough times come.
According to him, “To know who your true friends are, especially those you have been helping, try refuse to help them once and see their reaction. If they are cool with it, then those are your friends, if not, they were never your friends but leeches.”
Quite simple, eh?
