It’s nice to say we have friends, but the real question is, are those friends right for you?
Many times our friends and loved ones drag us down. Some of these individuals will accuse us of abandoning them, when we decide to pursue our goals, when in actuality we haven’t. Sometimes our schedules get full and will not permit us to spend as much time as we’d like with those we love, but any true friend would cheer us on, and let us know that we “got this.”
The truth is, many “friends” love being stagnant and want us to be at their level; anyone who discourages you from pursuing a goal is no true friend.
Sometimes we’re eager to share our plans with others but sometimes it’s better to keep our news to ourselves and work in silence. An envious person may try to get you to doubt yourself; some get cold and distant and might even try to get you to abandon your passions and some turn against you out of spite.
A true friend will root you on endlessly and will always provide a shoulder to lean on. A true friend will offer you good advice and will be more than happy to share your talents with the world, as they want others to see your greatness and a true friend will encourage you to try again and again, when you’ve failed.
Start the New Year with the right friends. If you believe your friends aren’t supportive enough, let them know how you feel; their response will tell you all you need to know.
Ask yourself whether you’re a good friend as well. Many times we sulk about the things others do, but sometimes we’re just as guilty too. Remember to treat others the way you want to be treated.
Go into the New Year with God at your side. This world gets tougher every day but with Him, you’ll be alright. Have a merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year my loves!
