True friends are always together in Spirit.L.M. Montgomery
Friendship is often defined as a relationship of mutual affection between people.
However, to be a true friend, not only will You need love and respect for You first, but You will also have developed a deep knowing about who You are in order to understand how to treat another…You.
With compassion, kindness, respect, trust, understanding, solidarity…
How else can You – or anybody – lead by example? It needs to resonate – be reflected back!
You will need to know what life takes to cultivate a balanced friendship.
Faith, patience, time…
Please remember we were all strangers when we first met!
That strangeness tends to ease over time when we trust & respect our own heart to know our own selves better.
Now that realization needs obviously time to accept for emotional maturity to emerge!
A compassionate heart recognizes the other, and accepts them for who they are and just as they come!
A true friend in need is a friend indeed!
A true friend to Self knows How to take care of themselves in order to be a present to another… You.
A true friend leads by example to make the right and healthy decisions.
To be safe and sound for Self and others, even with respectful distance.
Not only is a true friendship based on mutual affection & love, but it is also a balanced and safe space to be with.
A gift for You to Be You!
When we have presence, we do not need presents!
