10 Quotes To Remember When In Doubt Of A True Friend
Hey Boo! Is the modern or urban term for the word friend. But what is a friend? Who is actually a true friend to you or vice versa? A friendship is an actual relationship. It is the first true independent relationship (outside from your family) you encounter in your life.
Today many people are quick to say they are your friend but may not know the true impact they have in your life. And simply walk out of your life for selfish reasons. It does not mean they are a bad person they just didn't value being a friend to you. It is not anyone's fault nor is it an internal problem that needs an appointment with a psychiatrist. It simply means they only seek potential and have yet to learn how to be a friend to themself.
Some people just have a habit of using the word, “My Friend” or “Hey Friend”. However, over time I've realized friendship is like a marriage without the sex (unless the two of you are friends with benefits). True friendship takes time to grow and blossom into something beautiful, long-lasting. A relationship of mutual promise. They are the people you can truly share your truth and dreams without any to little judgment. A friend will listen to your weirdest fantasies, tell you they are logical and ideal but tell you not to try it if the risk is too great. A disagreement, distance nor racial or cultural differences will keep the two of you from dissolving the love of your friendship. Because that is what friendship is all about - being there for one another.
