Friendship how often do we truly understand friendship? Often I ponder that question, mainly because I am a naturally curious person. This is one of the topics I have spent thousands of hours pondering, it would seem. Friendship is one of the binding forces in the world and should be taken very seriously.
Never, would I not want to extend the hand of friendship to anyone. Never would I throw the term “Friendship” around as it had very little or no value at all in its meaning. Often people want to add acquaintances to their list of friends. Moreso than ever nowadays the term friendship has very little value to so many.
Making friends is not a real high priority for me when it comes to my happiness. Developing the strength to be a person that can stand the storm of criticism, is a must to be a happy person. Finding people of the same mindset, can for sure be very difficult indeed, but setting the right boundaries for yourself can help dramatically.
Reaching out to make new friends, should be a continual thing you do in your daily life. When you have reached out, and you do not receive positive support from the individuals, it’s time to evaluate your boundaries. Support in a real friendship is a mutual thing and should be acknowledged by both parties often.
Supportive friendships are healthy and can be a long-lasting positive experience for both of you. If you are not supported you do not have to make a big scene and go out like fireworks. Sometimes the best thing to do is just depart and if it is a true friendship the second half of the friendship will catch up with you. many factors play a roll in other peoples lives never measure yourself by bad friendships.
Take time today and evaluate your friendships!
