Life's hard? You've Gotta Through That, tho

It's been years since I was graduated from High School, the most beautiful part of life (most people say). It might be right, cause it was the time you'll never experience again, it's a different situation than the other time. Indeed. However, it's not always be as good as they say. I mean, life's not always be straight as you might see in your dream, and if it's dream, you gotta wake up, dude! It's not happening for a long time, though.
It's not that I've got bullied or something so sad. Haha. It's not that sad. It's just about how we face life with each different perspective in people's mind. Some people may always get lucky, surrounded by cool people, good life, much money, existence, and so on and so forth. That you may realize all they do is for something.....well, wait, for what? To get a sympathy? To be known as good people? To deserve all that things? Or to gain an imaging?
I really don't understand with people nowadays, especially, for people around me. They will do everything to get some "imaging" to other people to be "looked good" but basically not. It's kinda like force something they can't really do. It seems like, it makes me think, "it's not really you". People fake something to gain "something more", basically.
Indeed, people have each purposes in life, until you might find your friends come to you to get only benefits from you, not to be your "true" friend. It becomes sooo many people like this today. Well, I don't know why. Why could people change this fast? Somehow, people get this wrong, people now can easily fake it. You can pretend to be a good friend while actually you're not. And it happens to me. The word "best friends" is not that easy to determine. It's not like, we like same thing, or we came from same class, we often hang out together, then simply called as best friends.
Best friends are much more than that. For me, to be a best friend for your friends is hard. You gotta know your friends deeper, you got to be there if your friends need you, and it's not about you give, and they only take, It's not like zero sum game or something, but it's a give-give relation, because we need each other, and we gotta help each other. Not that easy, when we can easily forget that, never meet a long time, and we pretend to care. Best friends aren't that simple. It's not about pretending to be like.
So, is it wrong to stay away from friends that in fact they pretend to know us acting like good in front, while it's gossiping around behind? I think it's better to stay away, rather than to fake myself. It doesn't mean like we cut the relations as friend, we only need to keep the distance away and not too close. I mean, not pretending to close, while we are not. If you agree, you might get it right, but this post doesn't create to make a controversy. I'm just giving my opinion, you may have your own perspective anyway :)
