What makes a friend? A friend is someone who loves you UNCONDITIONALLY. What unconditional love means is that even when you aren't your best self you are loved. There are no conditions on the love. Not I will love you only when you are who I think you should be. Not I will love you only when there are no problems. Not I will love you only when you it serves me. A friend is someone who has compassion, empathy, FORGIVENESS.
I know this is tough energy right now, but we are all going through it.. We are spirit in body.. We are humans. We are not perfect.
I saw this most amazing post by LISA FABREGA on Facebook today :
this is what Mercury retrograde taught me in these past two weeks. I had to get up from a table I didn't want to leave, but I did. Sometimes you have to. You can still love that person, but it's going against your soul to stay at a table where love is no longer being served, or you are not being treated in a way that feels loving --so of course, I got up and left that table. When we are kids we may not be able to take that option, but as adults, we have a responsibility to parent ourselves in the same way we would parent a child with love and respect. That means not leaving your inner child in situations where love is no longer being served, where you are not being met #self respect.
"Some people are upset with YOU because they are unhappy with THEMSELVES"
So here I am .. living and learning to be my own best friend. To love myself enough to move forward with the hope that in my true friends they will continue to love me.. all of me.. all of the woman I AM.
