Monday Morning Pep Talk: The Value of Healthy Friendships

| September 26, 2011 | 0 Comments

“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.” – Anonymous

In the busyness of launching a business while working full-time, it can be easy to forget to make time to hang out with your friends. A put off phone call turns into a missed lunch, which turns into 2 weeks of phone tag, and before you know it an entire month has gone by without seeing your friends. Remember – true prosperity is based on abundance in all areas of life including relationships and entertainment. The real friends in your life look forward to being your biggest cheerleader and offering a shoulder for support. Find time in your schedule to maintain these valuable connections.

Today’s Affirmation: Maintaining my friendships is vital to my happiness.

I love to spend time with my friends because I can totally unwind with them. Around my friends, I am myself free from judgment. To me, this is a priceless feeling.

My closest friends are an extension of me and vice versa. My friends understand how I am feeling by simply looking at me, and they always know what to do or say to boost my spirits when I am feeling down.

I love my friends dearly because they are truly devoted to maintaining our friendship. For this reason, I ensure that I constantly nurture our bond.

When my friends need me, I am there in a heartbeat. Even though we have our differences at times, our bond is undeniable. If all parties involved give an honest effort, I know that in 30 years we are still going to care for each other.

Undoubtedly, my spouse is my best friend and I purposely devote the bulk of my free time to my significant other. However, I am well aware that it is healthy to have friendships outside of my marriage.

My friends are truly a blessing. Therefore, I ensure that I am always supportive of their decisions, even if they’re not in keeping with my personal beliefs.

I often make nice gestures, such as sending a bouquet of flowers for their birthdays or picking them up the newly released DVD of their favorite movie.

Today, I will give my best friends a call and set up a lunch date. I am confident that we can maintain our friendships even with our daily responsibilities in life.

Friendship Check-up:

1. Are my friendships healthy?
2. In my friendships, am I more of a giver than a taker?
3. Am I willing and able to be there for my close friends when they need me?
