May I Read To You About Friendship?
Someone else's beautiful words about friendship that completely distracted me this morning... May I read them to you?
"Avoid at all costs those who are only by your side in moments of sadness to offer consoling words. What they are actually saying to themselves is "I am stronger. I am wiser. I would not have taken that step.
Stay close to those who are by your side in happy times, because they do not harbor jealousy or envy in their hearts, only joy to see you happy.
Stay close to those who are not afraid to be vulnerable...
Stay close to those who, when you make a mistake, never said "I would have done it differently.
Stay close to those who say: 'Everything's fine as it is, but we still need to move on...
Stay close to those who sing, tell stories, and enjoy life, and whose eyes sparkle with happiness.
Because happiness is contagious and will always manage to find a solution, whereas logic can find only an explanation for the mistake made..."
Manuscript Found in Accra by Paulo Coelho
What is possible with friendship beyond what we have ever considered?
