Today is day 22 of Arlee Bird's A-Z Challenge! Since I write for younger children and we're doing the ABC's, I thought I'd do The ABC's of A Good Friend (and throw in a few random pictures, because I have a bit of a camera habit).
When we think of the word value we think of money...are we getting our money's worth? It's the same with our friends. Do we value them? Do they value us? You can tell by the way they treat you if you are a valued friend. You can also tell by the way you treat them if you value them. Do you cancel on them? Do you only call when you need something? Do you feel like you "have to" see them? If you answered yes, then those people are not valued friends...If you want to be a valued friend, think about your relationship with that person. How can you make it stronger? What's it lacking? There are different kinds of friends...some aren't meant to last forever. If this person is one whom you would like to have a friendship with for a long time, then you have to put the work in and show them that you can be that valued friend they are looking for.
What is the longest friendship you have had? or still have?
