It Is Less Important To Have More Friends… And More Important To Have Real Ones.
How many likes did I get? How many followers do I have? When did these become so important?
Some friends are for a day. Some friends are for a season. Some friends are for a lifetime.
All of them have value. All of them add dimension to your life and interaction and experience that can help you grow in ways that you might not expect.
In a world that is consumed by social media, followers and aggregated likes, I think it is very important to distinguish the difference between quality versus quantity.
A real friend sees your shortcomings and loves you regardless. They might be willing to talk with you about them and help you grow through them, but they don’t love you any less because of them.
A real friend is just as happy to cross paths with you when you are down as they are to share your exhilaration when you are up. They extend of themselves and the synergy that is created through a deep friendship is one of the most precious things a humanbeing can ever acquire. With that in mind, I believe that it is still very possible to have many friends but only a small handful of the ones who truly matter in your journey through life.
Seeing people for what they truly are and celebrating their essence is a gift and we are most wise to share that gift with those who we ultimately evolve into becoming an extended family with.
I hope your Tuesday brings you great joy!???
