4. True friends remind you of who you truly are underneath it all.
No matter how many times you will "fail" at becoming this perfect, kind and loving
person you aspire to become, and no matter how many times you will behave in crazy,
negative, unhealthy and toxic ways, both toward yourself and toward those around you,
the people who truly love you will never blame and criticize you for your weaknesses.
They will never condemn you for being human and for having something that we all have –
a dark side. True friends rekindle your inner spirit by constantly reminding you of who
you truly are underneath it all. Because they love and adore you, and because they can
see beyond all your tantrums, doubts, fears, darkness and insecurities, they will constantly
remind you of who you truly are underneath it all, helping you tap into your inner beauty,
wisdom, greatness and power. And helping you to live your life from a place of truth,
light, love and integrity, no longer from a place of fear and doubt. "If you treat an individual
as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and
could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be." ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
5. True friends give you permission to be yourself.
Your true friends, the people who truly love you, will never try to control you,
to change you or to convince you that you should be anything other than yourself.
They give you the permission to just be. To be yourself, unapologetically, loving you
for you, and not for who they think you should be. True friends give you permission
to be yourself. "Friends can help each other.
A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself –
and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the
moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to –
letting a person be what he really is." ~ Jim Morrison
6. True friends make you better, not bitter.
True friends bring out the best in you. They make your life sweeter with
their words, their presence, their actions and behaviors. They enhance you,
they enhance your life, and they make you want to become a better person. True friends
inspire you to live your life to your full potential, to be better not bitter, and to constantly
look for the good in the bad, and the beautiful in the ugly.
Always remember, true friends make you better, not bitter…
"True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils.
Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island…
to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing." ~
