She was grateful to have found friends who loved and supported her no matter what. – Queenisms™
One of the most powerful practices in the art of happiness is gratitude. Take a moment to think about friends, family or even acquaintances who have come into your life at one time or another, and loved you no matter what you did or didn’t do. Have you ever allowed yourself to love someone for who they are and not for who they might be, were or could be if they just listened to you? We practice this by saying to ourselves, “Oh look, my wacky friend is doing that thing that sometimes drives me crazy. It seems to give her comfort. How wonderful.” There are many other examples of accepting someone’s behavior and loving them anyway. Now, this can be a slippery slope. Any time someone’s behavior puts them or you at risk or distresses you, that’s a different story. We’re talking about quirks here. We’re talking about accepting people for the messy, flawed, but wonderful people they are. To have such a friend, be such a friend.
