EOYR= End of Year Rant
I don’t get bogged don with resolutions so this year I thought I’d speak freely on a few things that I’ve seen going on this last year!
Friendships seem to be on the radar for those wanting to cut others out of their lives. Friendship is defined as: the emotions or conduct of friends; the state of being friends. AND a friend is defined as: a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations.
So, here’s the thing… not all friends can do for you the way you did for them AND that is okay. A friend is not about doing equal amounts for each other…if that were the case, I’d have none. I have friends who I could never equate myself too and even more who could never equate themselves to me. BUT that is just it…nowhere in that definition did it say either had to!
QUIT expecting others to do as much or as little as you. We all have our lives we get wrapped in. NO ONE knows everything about another human…instead show your compassion for them. When they can’t do for you be kind and understanding.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I totally understand if the other person is a blank canvas of doing. Like not ever have a text conversation with you unless you start it. (That annoys me beyond belief).
But before you completely block them out of your life, evaluate the person… deep down – do you really want to loose that friendship? Have you reached out to find out what is going on?
I’m a firm believer in putting out the energy in the world that you want to receive. So do you really want people to just give up on you without explanation? Do you really want people to walk away from you without care?
I had a friend who was a horrible liar. So bad so the people she lived with up until her death didn’t even know she had adult children. BUT she was still a friend. Someone I talked to almost daily. A friendship goes further than what a person can do for you.
