What Is A True Friend?

friendship blog 2
Friendships are a priceless gift that life grants us. For those of you who are fortunate enough to have a handful of good friends, you are truly blessed. A good friend is meant to bolster you; to encourage you to be your best self. A true friend is not intimated by your grand nature. I true friend only wants and strives for your ultimate good. A genuine friend sees your short comings and encourages you through them instead of just pointing out what is defective in you. That friend knows your good intentions and lovingly helps you to grow into your best self. Your life is better for having this person in it.

With a good friend you work through difficult times together; not abandoning the other because times are tough. A true friend is one of your anchors in life that help to calm you when the water’s waves are tumultuous. This friend aids you in claiming yourself in this universe. If you have several friends like this thank them today. If your friendships don’t give you these gifts then maybe you need to consider them more of an acquaintance rather than someone to really bear your soul to. Being the active director of your life requires that you be able to judge which friendships encourage you and which are more of a burden.

I emplore you to be picky about the ones you call your close friends. Your friendships ‘mirror’ you! They are a reflection of who you are. What do your friendships say about you? Be discriminative with the ones you allow to be in your close circle as it is your responsibility to yourself to surround yourself with those that have your best interest at heart. Trust your intuition about your relationships; it is usually correct.

Moreover, what kind of friend are you? Do you display these qualities to the ones you call friend? Receiving this support merits giving this support. What a wonderful experience it would be to both give and receive this with another; true friends indeed!
