A True Friend is Hard to Find

friendship1We spend a lot of time discussing the ins and outs of romantic relationships, discount viagra site but what happens when a friendship ends?  Does it have the same affect?  My answer is YES, health especially if this is someone you considered a close friend.

Last night, a very close friend of mine decided to end our friendship for reasons that completely baffle me.  The reasons he gave were honestly quite stupid in my book; he chose to highlight only 2 points in our timeline as reasons to end our relationship, completely neglecting the years of communication and support we’ve given each other.  I know he’s going through some personal issues right now that affected his rash decision, but nonetheless, the breakup is still painful.  Right now he feels scared and alone; he’s forgetting that people do care about him.  I am quite saddened by this and had myself a good little cry, but I do not blame him.  I will give him the space he wants.  In the end I told him I’ll miss him and that I’ll be here if and when he wants to return.

friendship3All relationships require two people to start and continue.  All relationships require communication and support; they are not measured by convenience.  All relationships should be non-judgmental and empowering.  All relationships should offer compassion and insight.  True friendships should espouse all these characteristics as well.

Losing a true friend is just as hard as losing a lover – true friends carve a place in your heart that’s irreplaceable.  They are an extension of your family that helps form your inner circle to provide emotional support and stability.  Friendships can also be toxic just like romantic relationships, so still keep your eyes and ears open, but for the most part, true friends are hard to find.  When you do find a lasting friendship, put the time and dedication in.  The best thing you can offer is unconditional support, courage, love, and advice.  Treat your friends as you want to be treated.

To my friend that I lost:  When you’re ready, I’m here. :)

I would love to know your thoughts. Happy reading :)
