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.
A friend is someone you hold dear:
A friend is someone you can always rely on:
A friend is someone you can feel comfortable with:
A friend is someone you can trust:
A friend is someone who is not judgmental:
A friend is someone who can keep you grounded:
A friend is someone who shares unconditionally:
A friend is someone you choose wisely,
