It’s not necessarily the common things you share.
It can be, but there is more depth and better quality.
Friends are people without limit to gender, culture, beliefs or generations.
They don’t even have to be family either
Friends are people who
stand by you,
stick up for you,
got your back
listen and try to understand you
with no strings attached.
And this is all reciprocated, consistently
And if they’re friends,
then they will also call you out,
as needed, on something not quite right.
And you would do the same for them.
If you’re friends, you feel may feel hesitant to do so,
but you do since you love them
…and they understand why you did, because they love you too.
I’m writing this RE-definition
because somewhere I lost track.
My soul and heart know what friendship is all about.
But looking back,
people I used to call “friends”
quite simply were not so.
If you’ve read some of my writings, you will see why.
Plus, Pluto (planet of detoxing and healing) is retrograde (inner focus work) in Capricorn (old traditions) until September of this year.
