Are you Really my Friend?
Aristotle once said-What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.
This note is dedicated to all the friends in the world. Real Friends. Like the one you could sit on a bench with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had. Like what Aristotle is talking about-A really Divine Connection with another person. Its bigger than the person that you talk to all the time,its far much better than the person you see most of the time..Im talking about the person you can see once every few months and or speak to you for just a few minutes-and you have a ground breaking transformative experience in just that moment...
I have been dealing with a lot of ups and downs and swinging away a lot of curve balls over the past few months. In that process i realized that i was neglecting a very special someone. The best friend i have known for years, but hardly took the time to acknowledge-however they remained the same till this day from day one..the essence of this relationship with this friend dictates how i am with other friends in my life...And because i havent been present recently most of my other friendships turned a bit bitter and were broken or even lost...That best friend that i love so much is the friend in me..
A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out. The relationship that we have with ourselves is a mirrored image of the relationships we have outside of our selves. usually when your in a circumstance with a person that doesnt seem right or someone ended up violating your bond,it stems from similar reoccurrences that exists with you. If you want people to respect you-yopu have to first respect your self..
This statement reveals that there is an internal relationship with you and and another part of you-which may feel like two people existing in one body-(the opposite of aristotle..)
If you are having a bunch of major issues with relationships outside of you and it seems to be an ongoing thing..Stop-And check in with your self..This is your LIFE..yours! As we race around this LIFE we have to take pit stops to check in with ourselves to repair and get our maintenance on...So check in with YOU and do what needs to be done and then go back on your track when ever YOU are READY...Its YOUR time!Plus-The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. And true friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.
So effectivily communicate to those in your life that you taking it light and going into your pit stop-do what needs to be done...and come back and you will start to see the new you in the people you have around...And if you dont-then Snip Snip away baby! its 6 Billion people on this planet-dont hold on to things you cant HANDLE.
Ride on baby!
