So, this post was technically suppose to be done like last week but I have good reasons for it's lateness. You see, last week some of my family was gone for a handgun class out in Nevada and between me trying to walk around and stay awake there wasn't a whole lot of time for blogging. But now I'm here (yes, I did in fact survive.) and ready to share about friendship today.

A lot of people come at friendships with the mentality of  "How can I benefit?" when in reality we should be asking "How can I be a benefit?"

Because we always come up with all these lists of what we want in a friend. We've all done it.

want my friend to be [insert any number of good qualities].

This is what I'm looking for in a friendship.

But that's not what friendship is about. Because no matter how hard we try, we're never going to find someone who exactly meets our idea of a perfect friend. Probably because there are no perfect people out there.

Instead of coming at friendships with a me mentality, we should be looking for ways to help our friends, not having our friends help us.

So, instead of asking what you can gain out of a friendship, always look for how you can help and benefit the other person.

No one wants someone who only has friends to boost his ego.

And that's all I have right now. So, have a great week! And I'm sorry about how late this was.

  1. You make a good point! I think the "me" mentality is the main reason friendships fall apart.
