Oh my dear, but there is a difference. People loiter in your circle, but real friends stand in your corner.
There are watchers, waiters and workers who sit in your audience.
Workers are few and far between but worth their weight in reciprocation as they are supportive and don’t need to be seen to be loyal.
Watchers and waiters do exactly as the titles suggest. While they may not be haters they are indifferent and simply take up space. Don’t get distracted but rather motivated by this secondary group. If they’re watching, they might as well witness your win.
