Hey y’all! So, a ton of people have been asking me to do a blog about fake friends… BUT I’m not going to do that! I only want positivity on this blog, so instead, we are going to be talking about true and Godly friendships!
I have been so blessed to be friends with so many amazing and Godly people. It is so important to build up encouraging and positive people in your life. I am learning this more and more everyday. For a while, I shut everyone out because I didn’t want to be hurt by anyone. Instead, it just hurt me even more! God created us to be social beings, and we need some social interaction in our lives!
So, when I think of a true friend, the first thing I think about is someone who is encouraging. Friends should constantly be building each other up. When you compliment a friend or build them up, you can gain from it. Encouraging others makes your own soul more beautiful.
Friends also should not compare themselves to each other. Often times, I catch muself or a friend of mine saying things like, ” Wow you look so much better than me.” or ” Ew I look bad in that selfie don’t post it!” I feel like pretty much every single teenage girl has said these words haha! Anyways, don’t think your friend is prettier than you or better, because thinking these things can totally ruin your friendship with that person. We shouldn’t be comparing ourselves because we all bring something different to the table. We should be happy when our friends accomplish something, not jealous of it!
Communication with your friends is also important. If something a friend said to you hurt you, you need to let them know. If you don’t tell them, it will continue to hurt your friendship without your friend even realizing it! Talk to each other in real life, don’t just text to talk about your problems. When you just text, a lot of things are left unsaid. It is also hard to pick up on emotions over cyber space, so just talk in real life!
Let’s all focus on being a true friend, not just finding true friends. There’s a quote that says ” Your vibe attracts your tribe.” and this is so true! Be a spiritual leader in your friendships, and your friendships will become more God-based. Live real friendships, and make true bonds with others. Reach out to as many people as possible because everyone could use a true friend. I’m putting some verses down below for y’all to meditate on and think about! Have an excellent day- Cami 🙂
The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray. (NLT)
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. (NLT)
