Uniqueness of Friendship

Friendship is the only relationship that can be experienced in every type of relationship whether between family members, professional peers, romantic partners, etc. We create these formidable bonds as we share things in common such as location, ideas, personality traits, hobbies, culture, and more. These connections strengthen as we begin to fully care about the other party and their well being. Relationships are able to grow and blossom as we realize honest and open communication are key, as well as participating in both giving and receiving.

Friends are the ones who we go to when we need help solving a problem, want to go see the new Marvel movie or chick flick, or just want to feel their presence so we know we are not alone. We are able to laugh, cry, vent, and go through every other emotion with our friends, all the while being supported and uplifted. They will tell us when we are at fault, being irrational, or just plain petty. Our truest friends are always there and will even at times put their grief and anguish aside just to allow us to confide fully in them during our most dire moments of need.

If you are fortunate enough to experience friendship with your parent, sibling, cousin, grandparent, or any other relative, be grateful for most are not able to have such a strong relationship let alone the presence of such a person in their life. If you have been blessed with finding romance and have the ability to build a strong friendship with your lover, give infinite thanks because not everyone is able to create such a powerfully, healthy relationship with their intimate partner. If you have anyone else in your life who you know will always be by your side, realize how your life is truly wonderful.

Continue to upkeep the relationships that are most fulfilling in life. There is no point in exhausting all of your energy into a bond that is unhealthy, abusive, or detrimental in any way. Listen to your heart and your soul, and you will know who is truly a friend. Give these people your all, and enjoy every moment by their side.

Three ways to upkeep a friendship:

  1. Listen – Give them your 100% undivided attention when they are speaking about something important or even minute.
  2. Be reliable – If you’re going to meet up for coffee, go on a trip, or even plan a phone call, make sure to keep your word. It is important that they can depend on you.
  3. Be honest – Tell them the truth about your feelings, opinions, and views on all situations where they seek advice. I am not saying to be rude, uncouth, or demeaning – just honest. They might not thank you immediately, but they will eventually.

I am sure you all already are well aware of the importance of friendship Eternal Waking Beauties. Keep upholding these beautiful connections the universe has created for us.
