The word "friendship" has many different meanings in today's society. It almost seems that a true friend is hard to find. Our world has become so consumed with a "giv'me giv'me" attitude, where we no longer focus on anyone or anything but ourselves. It's about, what are we going to get out of it, because if we don't get anything than it's not worth it....THIS IS THE WRONG WAY OF THINKING!
You all know that saying, "what goes around comes around", well this is very much true. Maybe not in a week or a month or even a year, but it does all catch up with you, whether good or bad. Friendship is about being there for someone, whether through a difficult time or just showing up with a few flowers on a rainy day. The small gestures truly make a friendship, offering to watch another person's children, making lunch for a friend or just being there to listen. The best quality of true friendships is the ability to be yourself, no matter what the price because good friends don't come out with false judgments or criticisms.
Find a good friend, but more importantly, be a good friend! Be the type of friend you would like to have and surprisingly enough, the perfect friend will come your way! It all takes time, charity and a true sincerity for another person's well-being. Let's face it, life is not all about you, but how society works as a whole. Can you be the ripple effect of true friendship?
