Ship full of Friends
Friendship ˈfren(d)SHip/ :noun: the emotions or conduct of friends; the state of beingfriends; a relationship between friends; a state of mutual trust and support between allied nations.
Isn’t it nice to feel connected to another person. A living creature, who thinks and feels just like you. An energy source that almost feels unique as if you’re the only few people in the world who get it. Having a friend is a security blanket; similar to a sibling who isn’t forced to like you. It’s this mental contract you have signed that says you have each other through bad breakups, success and everything in between. The moment you find that friend you hang on tight, so tight it scares them.
Being a friend is a commitment that needs work. As you get older the time in between starts to stretch. The time becomes a testament of the friendship. Can you be apart and still feel connected? In that space is where true friendship is created. The space is silent but feels secure on both ends. There should be this understanding that “Hey I know you’re busy, I support you, but I am still here”. Although it is human to use that silence to let unwarranted feelings build up. You start getting wrapped up in your head, you start to live a life that no longer involves them. It is uncharted territory. And it is okay. It is okay to feel that way. To feel insecure about a friendship. Your real friend will subconsciously remind you that you have nothing to fear, that “our” ship is still sailing. We just have to be patient for it to dock.
Friendship is a two way street. They want to know just as much as you do, that you care.That they somewhat fit into your busy life. And if you feel you are doing all the work, you probably are and that friend just isn’t that into you. Accept it. That friendship has evolved into maybe an acquaintance. A memory in the “cloud”. No need to stress it or fill your head with regrets (I Do sometimes). Its another experience lived, and there are other wonderful people awaiting your friendship.
So now I have got you thinking about who is in your corner. What I want you to do right now, is tell them you love them. Remind them of a funny time you once had together. Share a laugh on this beautiful Friday. Because being a friend is hard work, and just like in any other job they want to know they are appreciated. Don’t you?
Love More, Peace More and Roar More.
