On Friend Styles

On Friend Styles

I sat on my couch next to a long-term friend. Myself and another friend (whose mom had just picked her up) had just unintentionally said some hurtful things to this long-term friend and she was determined to get back at me.

“Friend,” she started, “you really need to stop worshiping me so much. People notice that you just jump at the chance to do things for me.”

I tried to explain by saying, “I was just being nice and if I can help any friend out, not just you, I do. Friends give me a reason to do things I wouldn’t normally do if I didn’t have friends.”

She continued by explaining, “You need to be stronger in yourself and not be such a push over.”

This upset me because I valued her opinion. But I took her advice and we are no longer friends because now I hang out with people who actually appreciate me for my type of friendship-style because it is similar to their own.

Timing

Timing

Dreams have their own timing. So enjoy putting the puzzle pieces of life together as they appear in front of you instead of pondering on the couch how it didn’t happen as you planned. You might miss your next window of opportunity to act. If you are paying attention, you’ll notice that windows of opportunity appear all the time They do not all look the same so you must make the right wish (within your means, so for me this is just a little above realistic) to alert your mind to learn how to recognize the necessary windows. It is all in your mind.
