The Power of Friendship: Is It Always 50/50?

The Power of Friendship: Is It Always 50/50?

“She became for me an island of light, fun, wisdom where I could run
with my discoveries and torments and hopes at any time of day and
find welcome.”
– May Sarton

Friendship is a balm during difficult times and an added joy in
times of celebration. If you are lucky enough to have people in
your life who have known you for many years, then you realize that
there is a special kind of kinship in being known throughout your
life. If your friends know you well, they can validate how you have
changed and how, after all these years, you haven’t. If you have
permission in your friendships, they can remind you of your hidden
talents and encourage you to take the chances you shy away from.

Having a good friend is also about being one. A balanced friendship
is seldom 50/50 all the time. Sometimes one person needs more than
another for a while and then it switches around. However, a
healthy friendship is not about one person continually being
dependent on another. As you find yourself higher on the
Levels of Awareness you may find that your friendships change.
The people you were close to in the Victim/Struggle Level are
seldom the same people you want to hang out with when you are
in forward movement towards your goals/dreams.

Notice today how you are a good friend. Are there ways that you
could be an even better friend? That might be an interesting
conversation to share with a friend you care about.

“There’s a special kind of freedom friends enjoy. Freedom to share
innermost thoughts, to ask a favor, to show their true feelings.
The freedom to simply be themselves.”
– Unknown

Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation
that you are making progress – IF YOU LOOK FOR IT! No matter how
large or small, please record it in your Evidence Journal. It will
only take a few moments and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.
