„Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do it. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do it.“
There’s been a lot of hate and negativity in our world lately, and it’s hard not to fall in a funk from it all. My friends are very important people in my life, they might drive me mad but I could not imagine my life without them. I surround myself with people I am proud to know. I appreciate the relationships I have with people who leave me feeling great after a phone conversation. I hope to make them feel appreciated in return. I always try to find a community that likes what I like, whether it is sport, dogs or travelling. There’s something for all of us, even if the community is based online.
Old school friends. Friends from university. Single friends. Married friends. Work friends. Sport buddies. Going out friends. There are many names for my them. Everyone needs a friend who’s been around for the long haul. So do I. Even if we do not talk with each other often, but this friend can tell me the most of my major life moments. In return I simply try to listen to my friend and making her/him feel valued.
Nobody is happy all the time, but I am the only person who can decide what happiness means to me. My path, my way of life may not always take me there. There are times when I am feeling fulfilled, and times when I wish I could sleep through the pain of life. But this thing I have to experience is incredibly short. It could be over tomorrow.
And therefore, it is always good to have friends on your side.
