Hello you wonderful people,
I found this saying on facebook the other day and immediately started thinking about it…
Is friendship really just weird and simple? I mean if you break the beginning of a friendship down to its core, I guess it really is.
Sometimes you meet people and you like them in an instant. Kinda like love at first sight, but rather „friendship at first sight“. Don’t you just love when that happens? When you meet people and their energy is so compatible with yours that you know, „yup I like this one.“?
Friends are the family we choose. And for me my friends-family is essential for my happiness. But becoming a family is not about just going and doing stuff with people you find likeable. Of course it’s great to go out and make memories but once a friendship has met a certain level of depth it’s important that you can do more than just „do stuff with them“. A friend is someone you can show your true self to, you can show your flaws, your fear, your happy side and just all of you and they still want to do stuff with you then – now that’s a true friend!
So I guess in the beginning it is that simple, you meet someone you like and you hang out but then I think is when true friendship starts – when you develop a bond that can continue without doing stuff but just by being together.
Today maybe call an old friend up and remind them of your bond, just hug a friend a little tighter or just hang out with a new friend to continue your bonding and just enjoy the sacredness of true friendship.
