We are all so quick to call someone our friend when in actuality most of us have one or two friends, and several acquaintances and people that we know or know of.
Many people don’t often understand what friendship is. There are many times we are disappointed and hurt because someone doesn’t show the way that we think that they should, but what we have to take into consideration is what that person is in our life and what they think we are to their life, We also have to take into consideration if that person really understand what friendship is.
Friends are people that you share your journey with, and have experiences with. Friendship is about being there for each other, being supportive of each other through the good times as well as the challenging time. A friend goes through the good times with you and cheers you on even if what you are doing in not really their cup of tea. Friends are not jealous. A friend is supportive and wants you to do well and to be happy.
In the challenging times a friend is there to help you through the challenge. A friend is there to lift you up and to encourage you, and not run off like a little roach when the lights come on. A friend is there isn the challenging time to help sooth your wounds and give you the fuel needed to push forward.
It’s very important to know who you have allowed in your life, and the roll they will play in your life as well as the roll that they wish for you to play in their life. The most important thing about friendship that you have to remember is that you can’t expect from someone else what you yourself are not willing to give.
Do you know how to be a friend?
Love and blessings in divine order,
