What does it mean to be a “good friend”?

16 Apr

Perhaps the hardest part about truly being a good friend is not remembering the birthdays or finding the perfect gift.  Perhaps it is not finding the perfect way to express your version of friendship, but finding the perfect way to accept theirs.

It is truly accepting the other person; accepting them for who they are and where they are at. And when they don’t meet your “expectations” it’s forgiving them and loving them anyways.

We all need a lot of forgiveness, don’t we?

In search of truth, myself and freedom from illusions,
