(This is my second attempt to write this post. My first attempt was erased/not saved due to a techno/human glitch….mine: Uggh!
My early morning work is lost…doesn’t practice make better?? Will this post be different/better?…one can wonder: a 1 hit wonder?)
This past week I spent some time with some friends. Different friends of mine on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. It was just what I needed (time with close friends here in Florida).
Doesn’t everybody need time with friends that are uplifting, encouraging and educating? Friends that know you well enough. Well enough to understand. True Friends that care enough NOT to exploit your weaknesses, circumstances or tears for their own advantage(s)…actually, isn’t that what so-called enemies do?!
The kind of Friends that don’t care about what you look like on the outside and are not swayed by appearance, money, possessions, prestige or bribe. They don’t care if you’re broke…(not just talking money). The kind of friend(s) that just genuinely like You for you…the inside (authentic) you.
(I’ve been thinking about a goofy social experiment: what it would be like to walk around/live life with a bag on my head with eyes cut out…so I could see. You know: see and perceive. Seriously. Would people talk to me? Or take the time to get to know me? Would they talk to me IF they couldn’t see my face? or avoid me? Just wondering: how I would be treated in person IF my face was invisible: would I be treated differently than I am now? Just wondering out loud via this post…IF an invisible face would give others an accurate, honest look at who I am? Would I get an accurate honest glimpse of a person by their treatment of me with an invisible face?! Would friendships/relationships/partnerships in real time/real life be cultivated?)
OOPS! BACK to topic:
Friends that I “highly value” and “appreciate”…(terms that mean attachment/love/preference) have wonderful inner qualities such as honesty. What qualities do You look for in a friend? or in a partner? What do you prefer?
Pleasant moments with friends I trust.
They have earned my trust over …
