that's the contract christians have with him. they play by his rules and he loves them and lets them be with him.
i wish i had a contract for friends. i'd like to let people know what i expect from them right from the start. well, it's not what i expect from them. i don't expect anything from anyone. it would be then what i expect from a friend. so, in the end, there could be no qualms with what people think they are and what they actually are to me.
if they said, "amanda, i am your friend." then they'd have to be willing to say, "amanda, i'm sorry i didn't live up to what i said i was (or what i promised to be). i'll try harder this time."
i guess maybe i'm too picky.
but i'd rather be alone than with jerks.
