Sometimes in life we meet people who are only meant to be in your life for a split second. They come and go with a small lesson whether you see it or not is a different story and that’s fine. It is what it is. But how about those friends who are your soul mates….?
You may meet them by chance as an adult or you grew up with them as a child to adulthood. Which ever it is, there will always come a time in all friendships where there will be a conflict of morals or values because at the end of the day we are all different, even if just by a little. We problem solve & make life choices differently…
So what if one day your bff/soul mate/sister/brother/lover does something you 100% whole heartedly don’t agree with… maybe they decide to drop out of college or started drinking heavily or taking drugs.. Or cheated on their boyfriend etc…
What do you do?
There really are so so so so soooooooo many different variables to what could lead to a possible divide of a friendship, it’s actually the equivalent to a ‘break up’! I’m writing this because lately I’ve been seeing friends too easily turn their backs on each other. So I am writing this blog entry to plead with you that if you have turned your back on a friend you shouldn’t have, you should stop & have a good think as to why.
I’m a firm believer in never turning your back on your friends.
You may need to take some time out from them so you can gather your thoughts and perhaps process what it is that’s happening and there’s nothing wrong with that, but eventually a true friend will stand their ground, speak up and let the other know that in their opinion what they’re doing is wrong because if you don’t and you just turn your back in silence well that’s just going to turn into betrayal. You don’t have to raise your voice or get mad but letting them know and asking if they are OK should be your intention. Love on them!
What is a soul mate: a soul mate is some one you can’t live without. We have a few. A person who strongly resembles you in attitude or beliefs.
Like any good relationship, friendships need love & nurturing as well. People get busy & sh*t happens but a soul mate isn’t a fair weathered friend. They’re the rock that you can anchor yourself to when life gets tough. Friends are there for each other but soul mates are there even at your darkest hour.
Friends are the family we get to choose to have in our life. Be good to them and they’ll be good back to you. Soul mates are the friends who are your family who sometimes no matter how many times you try to get rid of them you can’t but you also don’t want to..even if they are a little painful at times.
