In today's busy world, supporting and feeding a healthy friendship is not always as easy as it sounds, but it is important that you take the time to make friends, to keep friends, and to be a good friend. As the Beatles song goes, we all get by with a little help from our friends, and that could not be truer! We all need help sometimes and other times, we are needed to help others. Knowing how to be a good friend is the best way to keep a good friend!
Here are some ways you can give and receive the gift of true friendship and nurture your higher self: • Make the time
We are all busy and have a gazillion things on our 'to do' plate. It's not quantity of friends, but quality that defines true friendship, so instead of having two seconds for thirty "casual" friends, why not invest real time with a select group of close friends who are willing to carve out the time for you too? Plan activities in advance and when you really don't have the time, consider sending a quick email or text to let your friend know you are thinking of them. You will find when you are on the receiving end of this gesture, it can go a long way in brightening your stressful day! • Don't keep score.
True friendship is a two-way street. Don't be a taker and only call your friend for favors – that kind of behavior will lead to an abusive relationship. Be a giver and do favors for your friends before they even think to ask. Giving truly does feel so much better than receiving. Your soul and higher self will thank you for it.
