The term, “what are friends for?”, could either be the debut of a sparkly, beautiful, surreal relationship or the beginning of an exploitive, hot mess of a friendship.
Your friends should be your psychics. They read your mind and can tell when you’re down. Your friends should be the ones you cherish most, the ones closest to you. That is a “friend”. Don’t even ask me why I’m putting quotes on friend, people these days are just calling everybody these days their friend for reasons unknown to me.
Friendship is all about trust.
Friendship is about forgiveness.
Friendship is about achieving goals. TOGETHER.
If you’re not happy for me when I win, you can’t be my friend. A friend is more than just a seven letter word. A friend is more than just someone you can lean on when you’re afraid!
These words of Shel Silverstein have ever so unintentionally been knitted into my mind, “How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live ’em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give ’em.”
The great Muhammad Ali also said, “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.”
Please allow me, why don’t you, to fangirl over this quote by Socrates, “Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm & constant.”’
Before you step out and have a great day 😊, appreciate your amazing friends by being there for them as well! Trust me, the hardest part about trying to be a better person is definitely, dealing with friends. But it will be worthwhile learning new lessons, how to be patient and how to reel from the loss of a friend. It is a bitter-sweet joyride but I wish you all the very best x.
