Hi all! Sorry my post is a day late!

Anyway, about a month ago, I pondered about what it means to have online friendships and why these friendships are not fake. Today, I wanted to look at what friendship means. What does it mean to be a friend? Are friends a single soul in two different bodies? Are they bonded together for the sake of convenience? Or are they merely “frenimies”, together for the sake of keeping an eye on each other?

When each person is at their worst, the words of a friend are usually exactly what we need. His/her words of uplifting kindness are the cure for our worst depressions, stresses, and anxieties. A true friend always listens, and does not judge as to why we are upset. And when this friend is upset, you would gladly do the same for them. To me, this is the purest form of friendship; the purest form of love.

However, there is a dark side to friendship as well. These types of friendships happen when people forge friendships to manipulate you or for the sake of convenience. They are always quick to whisper about you behind your back or to sever all ties when it is no longer convenient for them to be your “friend”. These selfish individuals take pleasure out of hurting, and will never stop. For your own sake, never stick around these people. The light and kindness that you possess is too strong, and should not be corrupted by them. Don’t stoop down to their level. Hold your head high and walk away, because you are worth so much more than this.

Just because there are evil people out there doesn’t mean that everyone is evil. There are good people in this world. Find those people and treat them with kindness. The world becomes a better place when everyone is kind to one another 🙂

I will end today with a short poem:

Melodies

Such distant seas

Uncharted light

Free me tonight

 

Tonight?

Such unneeded fright

Grant me new sight

Messenger of the light

 

Are you the dark

Making your unholy mark?

This is not so!

You have to know!

 

I am here to help

Put down your fear

Your awakening is near

Don’t shed a tear

 

Rise up and sing

So much life you bring

to our darkened soil

Together we shall coil

Into one entity:

Friends.
