A friend

Today’s daily post exercise is: How do you define the word friend?

Friendship shows us many things about how we react to ourselves.

A friend accepts our rough edges  that we carry and allows us to add polish at our own time in our own way.

A friend is someone that comes along at just the right time, sometimes by happenstance.

A friend will offer affection that will give you the ability to survive with relative  sanity, in an often difficult world.

The truthful words of a friends are the rare treasures that can not be bought or sold.

A real friend speaks the truth in a manner that supports our growth, never choosing to degrade or minimize who we are.

A friend can teach you the the definition of unconditional love.

A valued friend has the sensitivity to speak to us in a way that urges us to be the best we can personally be, without insisting on perfection.

What is your definition of friendship? Please share your comments and ideas.
