- FRIENDS THAT BRING YOU CLOSER TO GOD
When these friends enter your life, your love for God increases. They increase your spiritual appetite. You are connected to the extent that you talk about your trials and tribulation openly. You learn from one another what it means to pray together and you share testimonies with no resentment. Such friends are difficult to come by, but they are around. You just need to be patient and once you find them, you know you will always treasure them just as they treasure you.
- THE COMPASSIONATE FRIENDS
These are friends who are conscious of people's view of you. These friends will defend you in public no matter the scenario. Be careful of the friends who cannot defend you in public especially when you are not around. Stay away from friends who will stop talking to you because they heard something about you from someone and eventually realize it was not true. Keep your distance.
- THE CHEERLEADER FRIENDS
We all must strive to have cheerleader friends in our lives. These friends offer unconditional love, support and accept you for who you are. They are the only ones who can accommodate your unrealistic demands and still take you for who you are. They are the only ones who can see the pain in your eyes while everyone else believes in your smile. I am forever grateful to my cheerleader friends.
- JUST FRIENDS
These are the friends you meet occasionally at a function or an event. I usually meet these just friends at the soccer field during my kid's games, some networking event etc. Most of the time, you will chat and say everything but never have any desire to socialize outside your specific context or to know that person better. They could rightly be called the seasonal friends.
Cheers to your success!
