Needless to say this disillusioned gentleman felt betrayed, disrespected, and most importantly hurt. He had lost most of his faith in humanity not to mention friendship.
And then... a Christmas miracle... he was bestowed a Christmas gift by one of these "friends", the likes of which could only be dreamed (or dreamt (or whatever)):
The pain is still there. Who knows if it will ever go away... but now the healing process can begin.
Merry Christmas... EVERYONE!!!
