What about your friends!

Friendship is something that is valuable and we shouldn't take lightly.  In this life that is so precious we often meet ordinary people, who become valuable people in our life, and we never actually realized how near and dear they would be to our heartsWhile talking to one of my longtime friends she was upset that one of her friends boyfriend accused her of something, and i believe she was more upset that she was already guilty before even being questioned. 

True friendship in my opinion would be when someone speaks negatively against you whether its your boyfriend, or someone in the streets.  If we are as close as we are supposed to be you should be able to know me better than what rumors are.  A girlfriend of mine always told me "that if you want to keep your friends listen and don't speak" which i found to be true, sometime people want/don't want your opinions they actually just want someone they know to hear them out.  They usually know the situation they are in is screwed up and they don't need you to second that notion, they just want to know that as their friend that you listen and understand.

Now the best thing to do is Love your friends no matter their faults, Offer advice if you deem it necessary, Value who they truly are and Expect the best for everyone.  If we would just learn that no one is perfect, and that we all have flaws, that is when you sort out who your true friends are.

  1. Tasha,
    You said a mouth full! Friends should be the second best of people in your life besides family. WE should love them as well. AS I reflective on your comment about listening more, instead of commenting, I realize that I can be guilty of this at times. Today, I realize that I want to show more love to my closest set of friends by listening and loving them for the way they are. Thanks for sharing!
