The bond that looks like your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and involvement in each other’s lives.
Isn’t it interesting how we, as a species, are entranced by relationships and the interesting complexities that they bring to our lives?
In the animal kingdom, there are countless examples of relationships born out of both love and friendship.
Social Media was born out of the necessity to stay connected to one another and further deepen those ties.
And throughout social media, we have shared countless pictures of disparate creatures fondling and cuddling one another under unlikely circumstances.
A newborn kitten asleep on top of a giant dog’s head, and similar. There was a great photo story, years’ back about a tiger, a bear, and a lion that grew up together and became best friends.
We build these relationships and they become the construct of our lives, giving far deeper purpose and meaning and amplifying our fortitude in moments of need and giving us someone to share the joys and sorrows that make the complete human experience.
When we let someone into our heart, that friendship grows exponentially; the value and purpose it brings us is beyond definition.
If there is one thing that is incredibly clear, it is that you cannot replace someone who has known and loved you at a specific point in your life. That is a finite resource. So as you get older, your longtime friends aggregate in value far more than any investment portfolio could ever produce.
Treasure the resource and always let them know that they matter to you. Happy Saturday!❤️
