Who Are Your Friends?

Everyone in life wants to have a friend that he or she can talk to about various things. However it is not such an easy task to keep friends, friends comes and goes all the time. Some may be very genuine and some may be as false as can be. You may have a friend now, but how confident are you about that person?

To interact with others is one of the greatest task that we have to encounter. Many people living today are easily influenced by people, this can be your favorite celebrity. You may like the individual because he/she have a lifestyle that you aspire to have, or the person is motivational and helps you to keep positive in life.

We all need friends and associates to interact with so that we may have a sense of belonging and purpose in life, we all want to feel important some way or the other. The people that we allow to be a part of our lives is fundamental in our way of thinking and development, you must choose your friends and associates carefully, and refrain from complaints about your job, your company, or any individual.

Friends are people that accept you for who you are and will not talk behind your back about you and slander your name. One of the best way to find these people is to first observe. Usually people who talk to you about others are sure to talk to others about you so stay away from people like these for they are sure to kick you under the bus. Many people will eat and drink with you and then behind you they will try to eliminate you.

The majority of people that you encounter with will always be looking for an opportunity for themselves and not necessarily one for you, that is just the plain truth that needs to be told. I think that we all need friends, but it is just so difficult to really find genuine ones out there. People are just so self-centered nowadays and just plain arrogant in their dealings.

When you are out in the world and seeking friend, observe the individual first before committing yourself to friendship. That is why so many people are so devastated and distraught when they get deceived by their so called "friends". Some people even go to the extremes by committing suicide. Be sensible in your dealings and don't get too easily caught up in lies and deceit from individuals.

Life is full of great things that you can do, you do not need to commit yourself to any individual that will eventually hurt you in the future. Keep your circle of trust small and concise, keep in mind that even that small circle of trust can change any minute. Once you have this in mind, you will not feel a great negative impact in your personal life. Once again - Keep Your Circle Nice And Small.

Who Are Your Real Friends?

Have you asked yourself this question? Evaluate all the people in your life right now and see who are really there for you when you are in need and who response to you in a positive way that motivates you. When you do this, look in the mirror and also take a self analysis to really evaluate the entire situation. It is important that you do this in order to keep progressing through life. Your objective should be to move forward in life not backward or still.
