I had one of those sleepless nights, and started to think, not the best way to fall asleep, and realized the friends in my life that I treasure and cherish all have the same traits. Not such a surprise. If you know yourself very well, you make good choices about who you let in. So what are the words that really turn me off…..arrogance, insincerity, shallow, entitlement, hate, negative, mean-spirited. …………………..and the opposite? Kindness, Humility, Caring, Genuine, Integrity, Loving, Honest, and both lists could go on. The point being, you need to do a reality check. Do you really look forward to seeing “them”?. Are there some laughs when together or just complaints? Too many people have way too many people cluttering up their inner peace space. If you really work on yourself to achieve a mellow life, do a little inventory check and see who and what can be let go of………….. A good friend is a friend at your convenience, not just theirs…and true friendships are everlasting. Treat your friends as you wish to be treated.
