The interview below got me thinking about what I want in a friendship.
I’ve not put my conscious mind to it in ages…
Mitchell is by far my best friend and he is also my loverman… and a man…
not that being a man is a negative in my book of friends.
In fact, I’ve been betrayed by far more women than men very.
Only women have betrayed me in business.
Men have disappointed me in business but not betrayed.
Morning write to clear energy, back to topic. What I want in a friendship…
Humor. A wicked laugh.
No fear of intimacy.
Willingness to speak up and speak truth. (Very hard to find.)
Fearlessness, no, but moving past fears, or courage.
Attending to our friendship, and giving as good as I give,
though not necessarily the same way.
Caring enough to clear up misunderstandings. They happen.
Ability to reflect and a willingness to tell me what’s so about me when needed.
Compassionately, though not necessarily nicely. She’s not “nice”.
The willingness to get into trouble was when I was younger, and perhaps I have less inclination to that now since trouble usually involved men and a train or a plane,
and I am oh-so-happy Sady-married-lady, but still, a wickedness.
FEW women have that who are not actually dangerous.
Gives more lip service to putting our planet first…
Has a strong spiritual path though not necessarily mine.
The last two are new to me…
Also, I usually have fallen in love with my friends a little when I met them.
Not like falling hard for a lover,
but there is an undeniable attraction that is akin to falling in love.
I have not felt that in forever!
What do you value in friendship?
