Why Huddah Monroe ‘doesnt need friends’
Kenyan socialite and entrepreneur Huddah Monroe has shared some candid insights about her views on friendship via her Instagram stories, saying her clients and business associates make the best of friends.
Known for her unapologetic authenticity, Monroe boldly declared that she does not have any friends and neither does she need one.
“Love my life now, no friends and I don’t need new ones, my clients and business associates are my friends. The rest of y’all can f*ck off. Don’t call me, don’t text me, don’t chat me, I don’t know you from today onwards.” This statement lays the foundation for her unconventional perspective on friendship.
The socialite-turned-entrepreneur went on to assert that “People you think are friends chat and call you to know how far you are going with your life so they can have the next gossip or feel better about their miserable lives. They don’t really care about you. But your clients, those are the real deal.”
Perhaps the most striking of Monroe’s comments is her straightforward message: “Not to be rude, but if you don’t buy from me or have any business with me, you have no business calling my phone or ever chatting me. Clearly, we don’t need each other! If it’s emotional support, I’ll pay a therapist.”
Huddah Monroe’s perspective offers a unique take on friendship, emphasizing quality over quantity. She advocates for prioritizing relationships with clients and business associates who are motivated by mutual interests and goals, suggesting that these connections are more likely to be genuine and supportive.
Her stance reflects the reality that time and energy are finite resources, best invested in relationships that contribute to personal and professional growth.
In August 2023, the socialite opened up about a distressing betrayal that left her not only financially drained but emotionally scarred.
Monroe, via a social media post shed light on the harrowing incident that rattled her foundation of trust.
“Somebody robbed me $18,000 cash and I still hanged out with them like it never happened,” Huddah said.
The unexpected twist in this tale is that she knowingly continued to associate with her betrayer, despite having unequivocal knowledge of the transgression. Monroe confessed to a proclivity for facile forgiveness and a penchant for amnesia when it comes to past wrongs.
Her poignant warning was a testament to the fragility of trust in a world where connections are too frequently commodified and relationships traded for temporary gains.
“People don’t care anymore. They don’t value relationships or friendships anymore. They don’t care about tomorrow; they first gain your trust, then they attack,” Huddah wrote.
