Wellness Wednesday

This week's topic is Friendship.

I have always loved people, and have always been a “people person.” I have been called the “relationship queen,” and many think I have so many friends. Well, what I say to this, is, I have a lot of “acquaintances.” For me, a friend is something totally different.

For me, a friend is someone who is there all the time, through the good times and the bad. True friendship is built on a solid foundation of care and trust, and is a mutual exchange of compassion, kindness, and empathy. A true friendship is a “two way street.”

I am grateful to have a few friends who have been like angels to me. I can be myself, share anything I am going through, and still be unconditionally loved. I never feel judged, demeaned, and always get the truth, with kindness. I hope everyone has at least one true friend in their life, as I do believe this is indeed part of the whole tool box for wellness: true, authentic, energetically balanced friendship and connection.

My top 10 quotes on Friendship:

“Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.” - Khalil Gibran

“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself ...” - C S Lewis

“The language of friendship is not words but meanings.” - Henry David Thoreau

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” - Marcel Proust

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.” - Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.” - Ralph Waldon Emerson

“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” - Ecclesiastes 4:12

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art ... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.” - C S Lewis

“Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” - Albert Camus

“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.” - William Shakespeare
