Queen of Your Own Life

Never Too Late | Fall in Like with You

by Kathy Kinney

It was never too late to make good and long lasting friends. – Queenisms™

True friends, the kind with no agenda other than to support and uplift you, are a gift to be nurtured. And, to have such a friend we need to be such a friend.

We need to ask ourselves if we have motivations other than mutual support. Would we be unhappy if our friend got a better job or a new house? Would we be jealous if a friend was singled out for an award? Would it threaten us if our friend stopped drinking or lost weight?  It’s easy to slip into having an agenda, even if we aren’t aware of it.  An agenda like this will damage our friendships.  So be on guard. Love your friend and wish her nothing but the best. Lift her up and thank her often for doing the same for you. Don’t lean on her but walk beside her. We all deserve someone to watch us live our life and who we trust to say “you’re doing a great job,” or “I’ve noticed something you might want to look at,” without a personal agenda.

We all deserve agenda-free friendships where we want only the best for our friends but do not impose our own needs on the friendship.
