In how many ways have Friendships enriched our lives and made us feel loved, accepted, respected and cared for? Probably, too many to list, and the list grows daily.
A lot of people go through life with friendship, others without it.
Some seem to have a multiple number of friendships. Life is full of entertaining and invigorating friendships because it is full of friends. These friendships will be like a course in managing friendships. When we study these friendships we get lot of knowledge about friendships.
Some people are perfectly happy to operate with fewer friendships. They might rather have a few deep and loyal friendships, than many superficial ones.
It is not so much the number of friendships that is important as is the possession of friendships, period. Loyal and deep friendships are good. Even if you have one loyal trustable friendship, it is better than to have hundreds of superficial friendships. With the trusted friendships we can discuss our problem areas and get ideas for solving them also. These friendships share their time with us to solve problems. But when you have lots of friendships who are not loyal or trustable it is the case of the person who is not having any friendships.
Friendships are a blessing, and friendships are the channel through which great emotional, spiritual, and sometimes even physical blessings flow. Friendships cheer us when we’re sorrowful or depressed. Friendships challenge us to attain our original limits with encouragement when we allow ourselves not to go beyond our reasonable boundaries. Friendships motivate us when we’re ready to give in, and they can provide for us when life falls apart. Friendships are there when all is well, and we want someone with who to share life’s pleasant and memorable moments. We often just want them around, to have a good time, to laugh, to act silly; to enjoy some mutually liked activity.
