We tend to take our friends for granted.
The truth though is that it is always wise to slow down, take a deep breath and appreciate what we have in the gift of a close friend.
Friendships is one of life's genuine blessings.
Some of us are lucky enough to have some great friends, and some of us aren't that lucky. But as life has it, friendships are often taken for granted by most people and not valued as much as they should be.
As a comparison, consider two couples. One has no children after many years of trying and the other has several kids they can barely control. Who do you think values children more? The couple who desperately wants a child or the couple with so many they can barely manage them?
Everything is relative in life. We put a lot of value on the things we don't have and take for granted those precious things so freely given to use like friendship. Why is it important to value our friendships? What qualities make a friend so valuable? Let us take a look and find out.
Our true friends don't judge us. We can be our true selves and open in our behavior because we feel accepted and know we won't be judged. This rare freedom can only be enjoyed around our close friends. With work associates, and even family members, we must be on guard to say and do the right thing. Being calculating and guarded takes some of the fun out of life.
10 Tips That Makes Good Friends » 1.) Affection and Love »
Our friends are there when we need them. They help us survive our sorrows and deal with our problems. This sharing won't lessen the loss but it will help to unburden and to uplift us. This is a great gift, to have a close friendship. I saw a picture once of a man sitting alone in his village after an earthquake had struck. He was the lone survivor. Everyone in the village was gone but him. He was alone and sorrowful and had no one to share his sorrow with. Imagine how that must have felt. When we have friends, we are never as alone as that unfortunate man.
When we are struggling with life's problems, a friend is there to rescue us and offer hope and encouragement. This inspires us to begin anew. At those times when we are at our lowest, and we feel utterly devastated, the simple gift of friendship can set our life back on the right track once again.
