Compassion, kindness, generosity, . changing, inclusion, understanding, humour and keen sense of the ridiculous, as ever evolving personal capacities that can rise above conditioned perceptions.
The dear friends close to my heart are very kind, respectful towards others and honest, they enjoy life and to be with people, they all contribute from their heart to the well being of others, they allow and even want me to be as I am, no matter my “faults”, as I do also. To be together is deep joy, no matter if we cook together, share interests, celebrate, or share and find consolation in possible painful stuff. They are a great gift in my life. Blessings may be with all dear friends, and beyond.
A good friend is one who forgives you and continues to be your friend, no matter what.
Someone that is not a “fair weather” friend. Someone that is trustworthy, loyal, kind and someone that enjoys quality time. Always will make time for you!
The best type of friend in my opinion is someone you share your heart and soul with, have a great connection and feel you can tell anything to. Feel very at ease confiding in them with zero judgement in return.
All of your best friends for life!
Caring, awareness, generosity, compassion, fun, and trustworthy to name a few! Hopefully I’m a good friend too!
How beautiful it is to find someone who asks for nothing but your company.
Truly! And beautifully stated, Don. Thank you!
I appreciate a friend being an active listener, having authenticity, and having a good sense of humor.
Honest and genuine kindness. Compassion is a gift.
I value someone who validates what I am going through. As I have tried to recover from this heart surgery, I have liked comments that express confidence in me or a realization that this is a hard journey. I less appreciate someone saying, “Well you look good.”
When they are willing to share their
time and something of themselves
with me. Mostly, I’m just grateful to
have people in my life, that I can
The other day a family member shared a meme post on Facebook that comes to mind because when I read it I immediately thought of my best friend, one of my cousins, and my younger sister. It read: “Women need other women in their lives who think they are a big deal. No competition, no backhanded comments, no jealousy, no hate, just ‘I love you, I support you, and there is no one on Earth like you’ kinda energy.”
While it was focused on women this feels true for everyone–friends who believe in us wholeheartedly. The person you can call to tell a story in which you’re honest, whether something bad happened or whether you had a triumph and you want someone to celebrate that with you. I’m lucky to have more than one of these wholehearted friends.
I have found myself feeling the need to “manage” a lot of relationships lately, within my family, at work, even some friendships. I am sure that people feel they need to “manage” me at times. But I do really value a friend who is secure in their own identities.
Understanding, a hand to hold and a shoulder to cry on when needed….and laughter to share.
So many but the outstanding one is consistency.
Mutual appreciation and enjoyment in each other’s company. And a sense of humor.
