Have you ever stopped to think for a minute what it truly means to have that special friend or friends in your life that you can just about share anything with them, you're not afraid to just be yourself, because they don't criticize, they take you for who you are, you laugh, and have fun, share great memories. You can either be laughing out loud or sitting in silence, either way, the time together is appreciated. True Friendship !
I have some wonderful friends in my life, who allow me to just be who I am, I don't have to talk to them everyday, or see them every week or weekend, but when we reach out to each other in times of trouble, company, fun, or help they/we are there for each other no matter what. They just accept me for who I am.
Life is always taken for granted, but our friends should not be one of them.
As human beings we somehow don't love conditionally ( and I don't mean everybody, as i am not here to criticize ) but in most cases it's just a fact, we have friends based on whether they have the same trends, fashion and mannerisms as us, if they live up to our expectations, based on conditions.
And what is it with that ? why only have a friend based on conditions, why not just have true friends, they will always be the ones that are there for you, no matter what you go through, they will always be honest, they will not judge, and they will always forgive, because to them true friendship based on love, honesty, respect and trust means more than material conditions / expectations.
Being faced with the situation we are in now, shows us just how valuable Friends are, we miss them, we miss being around them, but most of all just seeing them, we feel alone and long for the day everything goes back to normal, where you can meet up for dinner, drinks or a little night out on the town, to laugh, have fun, and just return to Life as it was.
Perhaps now is a good time to think of the friends you let down, or judged for whatever reason or just gave up on, sometimes intentional, sometimes not, but you are just not friends anymore for whatever reason, maybe you had a dispute, and a true friendship was broken and just left undone.
I think now is the time to mend that friendship, send them a message or ring them up, it may just be the best thing you did, maybe you have been thinking about it for a long time, but you dismiss it, like a bad idea. Why ?
They may be feeling the same and thinking the same way.
You may not get the response you were hoping for, but then you can also have closure to the questions in your head, the " I wander if ... " scenario.
You can be at peace and move on, but maybe you do get the response and you gain the best friendship ever !
Living Life with Peace and Love..
