Quote Explained #1: Will Smith – If you’re absent during my struggle…
“If you’re absent during my struggle, don’t expect to be present during my success.” – Will Smith
What does it mean?
Hard times will reveal your true friends. Those who fail to provide aid when you are in most need are just your general friends. These are Friends who are just there to hangout with because of a common interest or lifestyle. Yes these friends are indeed a ton of fun, but try not to rely on them when you need help. You need to realize which are your true friends that you could count on when you are in moments of struggle. Sometimes you will not know who your true friends are, and when they don’t carry through the help that you expect, it’s going to hurt. You’ll be heartbroken during those times but will also learn a valuable lesson. You live and you learn.
This quote defines and separates the real and fake friends. Your true friends will be there and support you during your moments of struggle but only the worthy should deserve your sharing of fame, achievements and benefits during your success.
