“Having someone who understands is a great blessing for ourselves. Being someone who understands is a great blessing to others.” – Janette Oke
It is good to have a support system of like-minded individuals.
Not that they have to agree with your every thought but rather are on the same path of wellness.
Not that they support your every action but rather have your best interests at heart.
Not that they tell you what you want to hear but rather inform you when you need correction even if it stings a little.
Not that they sympathize with you every time but rather give you another perspective.
And it is wise to offer the same attention, awareness, honesty, kindness and time to them.
It is a win – win.
“The words of the tongue should have three gatekeepers:
Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?” ~Arabian Proverb
LOVE THAT PROVERB!
True, kind, necessary. Mmmhmm.
