I treasure my true friendships. It is rare to foster relationships that are solely based on caring and interest. I am happy to have a group of friends who only have my best interests at heart.
The core idea behind friendship is support. This means that as a friend, I am reliable when someone needs me to be there.
When my friends call to lay their emotional concerns on my shoulder, I quickly show up. I realize that I am their first point of contact because we have a relationship based on support. Their concerns are my concerns as well.
I experience that same level of interest and caring whenever I call on my friends. A solid friendship is a two-way street. I appreciate their efforts to provide encouragement.
Having others to bounce ideas off of is wonderful. Whatever feedback my friends ask of me is readily available because their well-being matters to me.
When there is a disagreement between me and a true friend, it is resolved quickly. Real friends find a way to get through any difficulty together. That hardiness comes from a solid foundation of caring and love.
Today, I celebrate the love that I share with my special friends. I welcome the opportunity to be a part of their support team. My commitment to care for their physical and emotional desires is unwavering.
