“Love is blind, friendship is clairvoyant.” ~ anonymous
Friendship is the true foundation of any relationship. When we hold hands, instead of hearts, we allow those we love the freedom to expand and spread their wings. A true friend is someone who walks in when all others leave, with no attachment, no judgment, just pure love and acceptance. She is one who will sit with you for hours while you laugh, cry, and work through life’s challenges. He is one you may not talk to for years, then you pick up the phone and it’s as if your conversation never skipped a beat. You know who your true friends are. You feel it from the bottom of your heart to the top of your soul. True friends are with you, through a lifetime, no matter what.
A real friend is not blinded by the fog of being “in love”. She won’t tell you what you want to hear, she will tell you what you need to hear. She will lead with honesty and call you on your flaws. Not to hurt you, only to help you. Just as you will do the same for her. In this give and take relationship, you learn from each other, one step at a time, one lesson at a time, holding hands along this path called life.
