Becoming True Friends

"True Friends" Sunburn Images

Love being one

There is something so heart warming about helping a friend out of dark times. Sometimes  it’s  about what we can give and sometimes just being there is enough. But it’s when we actually reach in to connect and do something to really make a difference the real magic happens. Relationships on a level of nurturing and inspiration  bring the spirits closer and strengthen the gift of friendship.

Take notice to those around you and their lives may never be the same.

I most certainly know true friendship is rare to find but there is one thing I have learned… it is easy to share.

A true friend is one who reads between the words sometimes, who sees through to the core of your reasoning and inspires courage.

I especially love what someone once told me, ” An honest to goodness friend will always try to leave you better than how they found you.”


Really being there

There may come times that you feel someone is completely unreasonable about their troubles or their hurt… but let me assure you that your friends enduring pain is very real. Don’t ever underestimate the encompassing power of ones emotions.

We may have never found ourselves in the same challenge or suffering a friend is experiencing. So we’ll let our heart take the lead. If we aren’t able to relate enough to make a difference, then it is time to bring in someone who can understand, share and offer greater support.

It always helps to get to a place where we know that we’re not alone — that someone is there who understanding our pain is real and that the emotions/thoughts/feelings making us crazy are perfectly normal.


A timeless quote by Dinah Crail, (1859)

“…to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one’s deepest as well as one’s most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”


A huge error occurs if offering love and friendship on only our own terms. Measuring, measuring, constantly measuring… If they are not what you need them to be “for yourself” then your are not seeing their reality, you are not helpful, but hurtful…

As important as it may be for us to find a friend to call our own through thick and thin it is not always going to happen in perfect time and you know how important it is so, YOU give it away…


Enjoy Your Day!

Robin

About the author

Have had the pleasure of working from a home office since 1993 and sure want to keep it that way. It's nice just stepping outside my office to play in the garden or take a hike with my pets when the mood strikes. Many agree, the most rewarding job to have is one we choose make ourselves. Also, spending quality time with some of the greatest Social Media strategists & Blogging buddies. Hands-down some of the greatest teachers (givers) I personally know. Enthusiastic sharing is unusual in some parts! Not this community. Such a very cool blessing :)

    Robin,
    Such a warm and cozy feeling I receive from your posts. :) You are so right when you remind us that true friends are accepted as they are, not fit into your conception of who they should be.

    Thanks so much for sharing these thoughts with us today,

  7. Friends are such a wonderful part of our lives. In life we have only a few ‘True Friends’, but that is all we need. Most important is being a true friend in return. I love the quote you mentioned about leaving them better than we found them. When we can give like that, we will get so much in return.

    Beautiful Post Robin! Thank you!

    Friendship is something you can always carry with you. It reminds me of the saying the man who wins is the one who dies with the most tools…for me…it is the man who wins is the one who has the most friends.

  11. This is such a touching post! It really hits on the emotional cord.

    If we have only 1 or 2 real, true friends in the course of our lifetime, we are way ahead of most! ‘True friendship’ is so hard to find, so when you do find it, treasure it!

    Thanks for sharing Robin! :)

    What a beautiful and heartfelt post!

    It has been awhile since I have seen Dinah Crail’s quote and especially love the last few words…

    “pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”

    Just spending time with these thoughts, warms the heart and soothes the mind.

    Many thanks for sharing this priceless quote.

    Blessings,

    Linda.

  16. True friends are hard to come by now a day’s and it looks like you know what it takes! DR

  17. A GREAT article, Robin… you’ve captured the essence of a true friend… only through being one yourself. That’s easy to see.

    I would consider anyone fortunate if they had only a few in a lifetime…. someone who is ALWAYS there for you, during the good times and the bad.

    I’ve looked forward to reading your blog because it is always inviting to be received with such a warm view of life. It’s reflective of your uplifting support… the kind everyone looks for in a “true friend.”

    You can write about it so effortlessly because that’s YOU… and it shows in your caring nature!

    …all the BEST to You… Chris

    I enjoyed the post. A true friend is very important to me. Sometimes they can be far and few. Appreciate and respect you close friend. I had one who was so close to me and we shared everything. Then she was gone. She was killed.
