“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
“He who walks with the wise will grows with the wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.”
“Righteous lips are the delight of a king, and he loves him who speaks what is right.”
“Two are better than one, because they have great return for their work; if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the one who falls and has no one to help him up.”
“Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.”
Dear Beautiful Roses,
Genuine friends DO exist! There are actually people in your life that love you and care for you immensely. People that want to see you grow, be happy, succeed, and be the best you that you can possibly be. Wanna know how I know?…. God sends them! (He sent me some incredible friends too!)
The Lord sends you beautiful people called friends to help you through life. People that you can trust and confide in. People you can count on. As beautiful as friendship is, sometimes it can get complicated.
We all have disagreements with friends sometimes, it’s normal! We’re all different and have different sensitivities and triggers. Today, we’re going to talk about a common issue we run into within our friendships: handling the truth even when it hurts, tough love.
God sends us genuine friends to push us into our purpose (vice versa). Sometimes our friends aren’t going to tell us what we always want to hear about ourselves.
Let me explain,
We all fall short and sometimes we don’t always understand or see the things that we do wrong. Whether it be us being rude to someone, picking up bad habits, gossiping, lying, or so on. When our friends call us out on these things we tend to get offended. Ultimately, we don’t want to hear what they’re talking about because we hate to be wrong. It’s time for us to put our prides aside and to put ourselves in check.
The truth is… truth hurts. Everything we do isn’t sugar coated. That’s why we have good friends in our corners, to correct us when we’re wrong and to stand by us when we’re right.
Sometimes it’s better to listen to sound advice, than to pridefully think that we are never wrong.
Nobody is perfect, but when you have great people in your life that loves you enough to amend you when you slip off, consider yourself extremely blessed.
Let’s love and appreciate our honest friends. They’ll always be the best company to keep around.
With Love and Light Always,
Brielle’ B. & London W.
This post does not support others freely tearing other people down in the case of “I’m just being honest”, or judging. There is a huge difference between being honest with someone and condemning someone. Let’s practice healthy relations on both ends. ❤
