A Friend

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 times we are disappointed and our feelings are hurt because someone doesn’t show us their friendship the way that we think that they should. But, what we have to take into consideration is who we think that person is in our life, and who 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, and will be there in the challenging times to pick you up and dust you off without criticism. Friends are not jealous. Friends are supportive and want you to do well, and try to help you to achieve the happiness you desire. 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 when times get tough. They will be there to help sooth your wounds and give you the fuel needed to push forward.

It’s very important to know who you allow 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 real 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,
