Friendship...


I've been thinking today about friendships and what keeps people together and what separates them....
I think the key to friendship is forgiveness!! One of the biggest things people deal with is taking offense and letting it stay with them..:( I have found the easiest way to really enjoy your life is to let things go!!! It's amazing how freeing things can be when you just let them go and know that not everyone is perfect and that you've hurt people too:) I also forget things like that really easily...so I think that helps a little bit..lol!
Also, true friendship is not seeing what you can take from the other person but what you can share with them! I think all of our relationships would so improve if we actually thought of the other person and seeing their perspective over our own:)
Just a thought:)
Amazing book to read that shares some of these principles is "How to Win Friends and Influence People"
PS. No I'm not in a fight or anything(cause that would totally defeat the purpose of this post!!)...just some thinking that I've been doing lately....:)

Just 'cause I want to know...... What brought about this "train of thought" if not a fight????

I totally am jumping on the same "train".... Given the history of events over the past weekend.
