Who do you choose to surround yourself with? Do you consider them true friends?
What qualities do they possess that attracted you to them? What about you do
you think they like? Do they consider you a true friend? Do you feel they are
trustworthy and loyal? Have these friendships been tested under fire?
It is a sad reality that most friendships are shallow. They are friendships of
convenience, such as how can I use you to my benefit, I feel superior to this
person and it feeds my ego, or I can name drop to impress others. Perhaps
it will improve my social standing, It will get me closer to another person that
I want to know, etc. Betrayal is never a problem as long as it benefits me.
It is heartbreaking when you find out that the friendship you thought was so
solid ends over gossip or betrayal. That is why it is so important to qualify
and observe the actions of others before offering true friendship.
Misery loves company! There are so many people out there who don’t want
to see another person happy, who will resent seeing others succeed and
moving onward and upward. The quality of friends is so important! If you
choose negative friends you can’t expect to live a positive life! A true friend
accepts who you are and where you are, but helps and supports you to
become who you should be. A real friend wants and congratulates your
success, where a false friend will try to tear you down, pull you back,
make sarcastic comments and talk shit behind your back.
I am going to stop here and let you digest this info and tomorrow I will give
you tools for qualifying worthy, healthy friendships. Think about what kind
of friend you are as well. MLH&R ~ ZZ
