Daily Quote: “Only a true friend knows a thought before it is spoken.” (Ethel M. DeGroodt)
In life, you will come across many people who will call you a friend, buddy or a confident. Understanding and knowing the meaning of each can be a different matter.
Regular friends will come and go as the days and years pass. A true friend while not always at your side will come back when you need them most. Treasure those friends who remain true to you. There is no better person to call your friend.
At times, it will be necessary for you to scale back on friends and instead categorize them properly. There are several ways to do this; I prefer to make columns such as true friends/why, work friends, Friday night friends, acquaintances. If you have to guess between a true friend and an acquaintance, they belong in the latter. There should rarely be a question or doubt about a true friend.
I know this sounds silly to sit and decide who is true and who is not, but there comes a time and a place where you need to forge ahead. When you move on, you don’t take all your baggage with you. To move on, you must first clean out the closets.
