Not Every Person Who Smiles In Your Face Is A Friend, And 9 Other Lessons Learned From Blood Sweat And Heels
I’m not trying to stop anybody’s checks (make that money, honey), but is anybody else relieved that Blood Sweat and Heels went on break? I don’t know the status of a second season, but the first one, which only lasted from January until Sunday that just passed, was detrimental to my health. I would get so stressed and irritated by some of the behavior of the ladies that it was something I wound up catching on TV and not actually seeking out or watching regularly (I couldn’t even do the reunion, ya’ll). From the episodes I saw though, I was reminded of a lot of life lessons we’ve all probably heard from wise folks or just thought about after watching a crazy episode from this show. Here are just a few that came to mind with different scenarios that have gone on throughout the first season of this series.
Not Every Person Who Smiles In Your Face Is A Real Friend
Of course, the episode in the Hamptons and afterwards is a good example of this. Sure, Mica was a hot mess during this weekend trip, but then again, she had literally just lost her father. It’s hard to say how one should behave when going through that, especially when her relationship with her father was so tumultuous. While I did have a problem with her stumbling around in Brie’s family’s backyard, as stated before, I had a bigger problem with how Demetria, Geneva, and her supposed good friend, Brie, treated Mica during all of this. There was a lack of compassion even to what they knew was going on in this woman’s life (they knew her father was dying, even if they didn’t know he was dead), and more of an effort to keep up appearances than to help get a broken individual together. Mica should never have even thought that she could rely on those women during that vulnerable moment, because they’re just associates for cocktail time, not who you run to during a low moment in life. With that said, be careful who you let in your circle and confide in, because not everyone who listens to your problems really cares about them…or you.
