“Friends Along The Way”

Friendship love and truth

I have always been a person that has tried to have an open mind. I try to get to know a variety of people because you never know when you may need that person. I’m grateful for all the people who I have met along the way in my life thus far. I have a couple of great people in my life but one in particular has taught me a valuable lesson about friendship.

This person has taught me to come outside my square and see some things that I needed to acknowledge within myself. I have learned to accept the things that I cannot change and know that I am a good person that someone can care about.  Sometimes what I may be feeling about my friend is misunderstood by me because I’m not speaking up. Slowly, I am learning to communicate in a way in which we understand each other better. Which makes us closer as friends.

We all have our faults but at the end of the day it is about what you can and will allow yourself to put up with. Friends put up with the crazy stuff that you may say and do. They tell you things that can heal your broken heart or make you soar to new heights. Sometimes they can be more of a family member to you then the ones that are related by blood.

Every now and then you may not understand a friends actions. It may hurt like hell because you think that maybe they are not a good person like you perceived. That’s when you may have to stop and realize we are all humans. Humans with different thoughts, feelings, and views and if you care for that friend, you talk about it. Being silent and holding bad feelings never got anyone, anywhere.

Friends come in all shapes, sizes, and color. They can be young with fresh ideas or old with a lot of wisdom. Whatever the case, care about them for who they are and love them because tomorrow is never promised.

Take care of each other. 🙂
