February 11th Make A Friend Day

We all could use another friend. We need that support of someone we can listen to and who will listen to us. They may not always agree but if they know us well enough they will have our best interest in mind. (Not that we will always see that) A friend is someone who will tell you the truth, whether you want to hear it or not. Old friends can become jaded to what we have already said and lose interest if we keep repeating the same issues over and over, even when they have offered ways of breaking that trend. A new friend may hear something different than what your current friends may have heard and end up being really helpful. Or maybe, just maybe, you can help them. “A friend in need is a friend indeed.”

How to celebrate – Go find a new friend. Start hanging out somewhere you don’t normally hang out. To get a friend you have to be a friend first.
