It is all about quality over quantity!
It is not about how many people we surround ourselves with it is about how those people make us feel.
Are you spending time with people that help release your best potential? They say the people we spend most of our time with should be people that help us grow and become the best we can be. So how do you know if you are surrounded by people that can make your life that much better? Maybe we need to step back and take another look.
Do you know the signs that can prove an individual is worth your time?
When I list these signs take a look at your relationships, reflect on them, and see if you are receiving everything you deserve.
Forget the jealousy …
Think about the last time you came to a friend with a problem. Were you able to speak with them in confidence? What I mean is you felt 100% comfortable. You knew they will not gossip and they won’t feel jealous.
You could pick up the phone, call your friend in a jiffy and talk about anything you want. As much as friendships are important in day to day life, they are particularly vital in helping us deal with life’s traumas.
A real friend should comfort you through your struggles and be happy for you when life is rewarding.
Do you feel the excitement?
A friend calls you or you meet them at a park and all of a sudden you are smiling, you feel excited! Why is that? Well, it's because you are comfortable around this person. You know they won’t judge your next sentence, you can laugh at each other's jokes, and you simply feel at ease.
They will listen to everything you have to say and they will tell you if you could do something better. Not in a rude way, but in an honest and kind way. You actually want to listen to their advice because you respect this person and you know they have your best interest in mind.
You know you are there for each other no matter what and you are both acceptable and grateful for a helping hand.
They are family!
A real friend knows how and when to make you smile. They love your quirky personality and heck they love your no makeup and sweatpants look!
They realize you are human and they will forgive you when you hit a hump. We all do, we are human and a real friend understands that.
They want to know what is happening in your life and they make time around their busy schedule to be with you.
There is something REALLY special about friendship! Remember, those that are meant to walk with you will stay with you!
It should never be forced and you should never feel like you need to walk on eggshells or feel stressed out in order to save it! If it comes, let it come! If it goes, let it go! Never force it and if you feel like you have to it isn’t worth it!
In time you will see who you can trust! Who stays by your side and who really loves you!
So go on, and show your love… Send a card or a GIF or simply say hello to those important people in your life. Let them know how important their friendship is to you.
Trust me it will make their day and yours!
