Another Trait Of True Friendship

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Lighten BurdenIn looking around the world for what all of us can be those lucky five or less TRUE friends we may have in life, one characteristic is they are WITH us through adversity.

Nothing weeds out the true friends from the regular ones like hard times for you. But I discovered

Another Trait Of True Friendship.

 

That trait would be

They LIGHTEN OUR BURDENS. Being around them, life is just a little bit easier.

They do this just so naturally. If someone is just bringing their baggage of their life over to you and ONLY ADDING to your burdens they cannot in my view be a true friend. A true friend DESPITE their own problems is a HELPER person to you in life.

"The truest of friends lighten our burdens."

It's so true.  Just being around a good friend can make you feel less stressed and hassled.  That being said, I need to spend more time with my friends.

Great reminder Gary. True friends are those that are first to help and give without expecting anything in return.

Time spent with true friends is a gift and we are always better for being there for them.

Gary, I remember in high school, my mom used to tell me that if you go through life with a handful of truly good friends, that you can turn to for anything, then you are blessed.
