What is a FRIEND?

There are many people we meet in our lives but only a very few will make a lasting impression on our minds and our hearts, but most importantly our souls. It’s easy to be a pal, a buddy, a companion, or an acquaintance, but to be a TRUE friend means SO very much more. 

It means being trusted and trusting, honest and dedicated, supportive, and AVAILABLE. It means going strong with your own life’s work and plans, yet reaching out to another when you’re needed and maybe even when you are not. What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other? 

Take some time to learn how to be a TRUE friend and part of that involves learning about TRUE love… then you will find life to be more abundant and the people in your life that matter will stay. Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything. And remember… always match WORD to DEED. Never promise, insinuate, or say things you can’t follow through with your actions. Image

A friend is someone you hold dear:
Someone who is always there, through thick and thin;
Someone who is only a phone call away.

A friend is someone you can always rely on:
Someone who is there to share your thoughts with;
Someone to listen, no matter the subject.

A friend is someone you can feel comfortable with:
Someone you can sit silently beside, without conversation;
Someone you do not need to fill the quiet moments with.

A friend is someone you can trust:
Someone who will guard your deepest secrets;
Someone who will never let you down.

A friend is someone who is not judgmental:
Someone who will gently offer advice and opinions,
Yet, someone who is not overbearing or critical.

A friend is someone who can keep you grounded:
Someone who can help you see through your obstacles;
Someone to shoulder you through life’s trials.

A friend is someone who shares unconditionally:
Someone to laugh and to cry with;
Someone to lean on, through both the good and the bad.

A friend is someone you choose wisely,
For a friend is your own mirrored image:
Someone to compliment your own self;
Someone who indicates who you are as a person.”
