In this post we explore how meaningful friendships develop our inner strength by creating the support team we need to live a life filled with love and positive energy. Friendship fulfills one of our most essential human needs.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes a great, long lasting friend!
Some friends you see all the time, some friends you see here and there and some friends you don’t see as often as you would like. The beautiful thing about friendship is that it lives in the heart, so daily sight isn’t always needed for them to have a place in your life. Here are 3 clear signs you have a great friend.
1. When you see them, it is like no time has passed. Yes, you might not have seen them in weeks, months or even years but when you do see them, it picks up right where it left off. The conversation, the jokes, mutual appreciation and love are strong.
2. Your friend is genuinely happy to hear your good news, and vice versa. Even though there has been time apart, your success makes the other person glow and vice versa! When one close friend achieves, we all do! When one close friend makes big moves in their life, we all do!
3. After reuniting with that friend for lunch, dinner , coffee or even a trip, you think – I am blessed to have that person my life. Odds are with any close friend you have in your life, there was a period where you would see or talk to that person regularly. Now that times might not be like that, you are even more thankful to have them as a part of your life and even your identity.
The quality of our life is based on the quality of our relationships. One of the strongest relationships we can have is a great friend!
