In this day and age, knowing who your real friends are is very vital. It’s just sad that one young woman had to find out in the worst way possible that the girl she thought was a real friend, wasn’t a friend at all.
And yes, I’m talking about Alexis Crawford. If you haven’t heard of her story, I’ll you guys a little background. Alexis Crawford was a student that went to Clark Atlanta and lived with her roommate Jordyn. Alexis was first missing and prior to that, apparently she accused Jordyn’s boyfriend of sexually assaulting her. Fast forward, Alexis’s body was found and it turns out that both Jordyn and Jordyn’s boyfriend are the ones responsible for the murder of Alexis Crawford.
Does this sound like a movie or what? I’m sure Lifetime will turn this into a movie sooner or later, but sadly this isn’t just some Lifetime movie, this is reality. What makes this even worse is the fact that Jordyn was looking around for Alexis along with her friends and family.
KNOW WHO YOUR REAL FRIENDS ARE.
It’s so hard these days to tell who’s real and who’s not, which is why you should be careful. There’s also another lesson to come from this, and that’s to be careful who you live with. When it comes to college, sometimes you may have no choice if you’re placed with someone at random. However, you do have the choice to go to someone if you feel unsafe with the person that you were assigned to live with. For people who are going online searching for a roommate for an apartment, please be careful. Do a thorough background check if you must, but BE CAREFUL. Just because someone seems cool and normal and you become friends, doesn’t mean that person is cool. It takes one thing and then you realize that person isn’t as normal as you thought. I pray that one thing won’t be something as drastic as you getting harmed.
Going back to knowing who your real friends are, this case doesn’t mean you should start looking at all your friends as if they’re murderers but pay attention to the signs that are telling you it might be time to drop them as friends. There are always going to be some type of signs or hints that let you know. You have to make it your job to pay attention to them. There are so many fake people out here and protecting yourself is always going to be number one. This goes for people you just met and people you’ve known almost all of your life. People change every day…including the day ones you’ve known since you were in diapers.
It’s sad that this tragedy had to happen and more than likely it happened over a guy who I can bet has nothing going for his life. Well, if he did then that’s over for him and for Jordyn. Let’s all try to keep Alexis’s family in our prayers.
How do you feel about this situation? Have you ever had to stop being friends with someone because they weren’t being a real friend?
