The Blessing Of True Friendship

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comToo often we make a self-limiting choices in life based on negative past experiences, which then keeps you from enjoying new, wonderful experiences, meeting new people, or learning a new talent or skill. To truly be free we must allow ourselves to let go and just be. We must remain willing to live an authentic life and selectively make ourselves vulnerable. Replaying the past over and over in your mind is draining and counter-productive.

I normally don’t open myself up easily to new friendships. I work with people all day, so that is how I get much of my social interaction. I love to help people and my clients are pretty much my family. I feel very connected to my regular callers, as they tend to be the most open-hearted and like-minded people. In my personal life I haven’t been so lucky, as many people are just not open to the alternative ideas, lifestyles and beliefs. In fact, some people are completely closed-off and narrow-minded about the mystical and the metaphysical.

I am not alone in this. A 2019 study, for example, revealed that the average American hasn’t made a new friend in five years. The study also found that he average american has three best friend and five reasonably good friends, as well as about eight people they like but do not spend any time with. However, this does not automatically guarantee that these people we consider to be our friends always feel the same way about us. A 2016 study found that this is probably only true for about half of friendships. Yes, only 50 percent of our perceived friendships are actually mutual and reciprocal!

Recently, I took a chance on a new friendship outside my work life, and I am very blessed to say that it reminded me that it’s okay to let the walls down so sometimes, and not to worry about stepping on toes or feeling like you have to walk on egg shells. I guess we just need to be smart about our choices. I have always been drawn to calm, centered, casual people who have a good sense of humor.

If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give ~ George MacDonald

I must say that my new friend came in to my life at just the right time. Sometimes, after we have been hurt, let down, lied to and simply ‘backstabbed,’ we tend to hold others at arms length. But to have a great conversation with someone who has the same ideals, values and passions as yourself, can be very healing and liberating. Best of all, they say friendship and social support keeps you young and helps you to live a long, healthy life!

However, true friendship seems to have become very diluted and superficial in the digital age. One cannot help but notice on social media platforms how some people tend to be ‘friend collectors.’ They befriend random strangers all over the world whom they know absolutely nothing about. I always wonder why? What are they hoping to accomplish?

A true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably  ~ William Penn

Surely, life would be very chaotic if we really had that many people in our life, or one will be consumed with guilt because you could not possibly stay in touch with that many people and be a true friend to all of them. You just cannot have a real connection with that many ‘friends.’ Furthermore, some of these so-called online ‘friends’ tend to be a toxic source of negativity and judgment.

I prefer to go by ‘less is more’ and therefore opt for quality instead of quantity when it comes to friendship. I guess you could say that I have a feng shui approach when it comes to friendship. I would much rather have just two or three really good friends who want to spend precious time having a great conversation on a regular basis…to just share, laugh, and reflect without any drama, craziness or judgment. That is my idea of true friendship.
