There are many reasons why friendships start, flourish, or end.
Everyone is different, and it would be a boring world if we were the same. Thankfully, we are not. The various personalities of people you meet bring something unique into to your life.
Maybe one keeps you laughing, another keeps you grounded. Could be you both share the same interests or hobbies. You might have a friend with a shoulder that you lean on, or you could have one that leans on yours.
Sometimes it might be a long distance move that keeps you away from each other, and you gradually grow apart.
It could be a spoken word and one gets offended, then a rift occurs.
We won’t always agree with what our friends think, or with the words that come out of their mouths. Our friends probably won’t always agree with us. That doesn’t mean we don’t care about each other.
I have a lot of friends from many places, races, different political views, and various walks of life. Some are almost destitute, while others live in fancy houses, and drive fancy cars.
I meet new people almost daily, make new friends, and reconnect with old friends quite often on Facebook. My friends are what make me complete, whether it is my sisters, friends, or sister friends. I need them in my life, I learn from them all. We all have difference of opinions, sometimes.
The one thing in common that I notice about my friends is this… they all have good hearts! If you have drifted from your friends, make the effort to reconnect.
If you are hurt by your spouse, a family member or friend, or have offended someone, try making the first step and reconciling that relationship! Both hearts will receive a blessing.
Send a card, make a phone call, go visit that friend!
Life is short, people are human and we all make mistakes!
To all my friends, thank you for being my friend, even though I am a weirdo!
I will leave you with a piece of advice that my mother told her children, and I instructed all the kids in my life!
“If you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all!”
You might just save a friendship, by being silent and talking to God about the situation!
