Friends

Being a friend means many different things to people. To me, it means being there for the other person no matter what. A friend is someone who knows all of your flaws and chooses to love you anyway. A friend listens. A friend supports. A friend challenges you to do things that you wouldn't normally do.

Lately, I've been questioning a few friendships. As with any relationship, it is a give and take. Sometimes, I wonder where to draw the line. I've forgiven many things. Friends spend time together, right? That's what I thought, too. It's like I'm a puppet on a string that is being led on and pulled in so many directions. I still love this person, but they have to make some decisions.

When they do, I'll be here waiting. I'm not going to be a doormat, but I am here to listen. I just think some people don't know the difference. We all should to re-evaluate what's important to us from to time to time, but not everyone does. It bothers me when people just float through life, letting things just "happen" without actively taking control of things in their life. I think people do this to avoid responsibility.

These are just some of my thoughts on friendships. What do you think?

Right on. It is all about responsibility. Friendship is about loving that person for who they are at all times. When we are the ones giving all the time, it is time to re evaluate the relationship and ask ourself --Is this relationship helping or hurting me--pulling me up or pulling me down. Some ppl are in our lives for a season.
