We all have a very personal definition of the notion of friendship, nevertheless there are some essential points common to all.
True friendship, is something extremely rare that can only be shared with a very few people (especially nowadays). Too many people claim to be our friends but are not.
Why? The reasons are various. The fear to be lonely, by interest or even because they hate who you are. Yes, HATE. Whether we believe it or not, it is a fact: some of our “enemies” prefer to feign a friendship and have us in their circle rather than ignoring what happens in our daily live … Aberrant, isn’t it?! Yet, this is a sad reality.
We all remember when we were younger , we wanted to be friend with everyone, to be appreciated by people and to belong to a huge united group of friend, who would get along wonderfully and share the same goals. Utopian, right?Indeed this is only an illusion, a lure. We only have a very few true friends. Wise people would tell us that true friends are counted on the fingers of ONE hand.
This word is so full of meaning that it is difficult to limit its criteria. Having a true friend means a lot. And when God gives us the grace to put one on our way, we must be grateful and know how to keep him/her.
HOW CAN YOU RECOGNIZE A TRUE FRIEND?
A friend is like a life companion. Someone you can trust and especially you can count on, beyond doubt. Ready to make sacrifices and compromises, we share with this person our sorrows, our joys, our fears, our hopes, our laughs, our tears, our dreams and our opinions without ever feeling judged, marginalized or pointed at. Someone who will also have the same vision (of friendship) and common values.
This person has to be an inspiration to us, someone who pulls us up constantly. This friend supports us in all our projects, listens to all our new ideas without prejudices and gives us the most constructive advice possible.
Attention please! We are not saying that our friend has to approve everything we do and ignore our absurdities LOL. On the contrary! This person who is close to us must be able to tell us the truth if necessary, as hard as it is. GO AWAY from people who constantly refuse to hear the truth simply because they don’t agree with you (joke).
More seriously, it is important to choose our entourage carefully and become friend with individuals who really care about us. “We do not choose our family but we can choose our friends”. Think about it 😉
We met when we were very young and share these values. We feel so blessed to have each other J #Bestfriends <3.
