What could make you a better friend?

Posted on: March 18, 2010

When I looked up friendship it refered to friendship as a type of companionship, that a human towards another human being or an organism can have. Now I do not know many of my friends that are organisms,but perhaps on some days!! You know who you are! LOL. The bond in which one has a feeling towards another is long and lasting if the two parties give the kind of time and effort that is needed. Friendship is the cooperative and supportive relationship between people, or animals.In some sense, the term connotes a relationship which involves mutual knowledge, esteem, affection, and respect along with a degree of rendering service to friends in times of need or crisis.
Friends welcome each other’s company, exhibit loyalty, often to the point of altruism. specific tastes will usually be similar and they may share enjoyable activities. They might engage in helping behavior, such as the exchange of advice and the sharing of hardship. Practical execution of friendship is little more than the trust that someone will not harm them.
During the last 48 years, yes I turned 48 on the 16th, I have found so many friends that have completed all of these aspects in the very definition of the word. Most of my friendships have been long and lasting. My newer friends can actually take comfort in that, I take my friendships very seriously, giving time and effort, as well as engaging loyalty.
I find the biggest thing I need to do is be more present. This is difficult when so many of my friends are hundreds of miles away, but I try my best to keep in the loop…….The Friendship Circle…..Kim
