“The type of friend you attract is determined by the type of friend you are.” #friendship
I’ve really believed this, and tried to live it for the last few years. I cannot tell you when it began. It started with a slow realization about all the people I’d hurt in the past through mood swings, things I’d said without thinking, or just for the heck.of it. There was times I was awful in school, even though I claimed I was a Christian. Once or twice it was because people egged me on to say things, and I wasn’t strong enough to say no. I was even worse when I was about 6 or 7 and onwards. I was a bossy little madam, among other things. I lost a lot of friends, as I did at other times too. It all stayed with me as I didn’t even try to change. I’ve said all this backwards.
Anyway, I gradually got to the stage where I really believe the kind of friend you are can help bring you the kind of friends you would like to have. If you are happy in yourself, and generally peaceful, I’ve discovered this is helpful too. I’m not sure what else. I also believe it works the way the quote says too. I have such amazing friends hopefully makes me a better friend too I LOVE my friends. I wrote about them recently for a differently daily prompt and I can’t top what I said then. To every last one of you, thank you.
