IF YOUR FRIENDS AREN’T FRIENDS, MAKE NEW FRIENDS
If the people close to you are dragging you down, then it may be time to make some changes.
If you friends don’t believe that you could become a better person and believe in you. Do something about it. Go out and find yourself some new friends!
When you really think about it, the things that matter most in life are the relationships we develop.
You may build a beautiful house, but eventually it will crumble.
You may develop a fine career, but one day it will be over.
You may save a great sum of money, but you can’t take it with you.
You may be in superb health today, but in time it will decline.
You may take pride in your accomplishments, but someone will surpass you.
Don’t be, for the one thing that really matters, lasts forever—your friendships.
Life is too long to spend it with people who pull you in the wrong direction.
And it’s too short not to invest in others.
Your relationships will define you.
And they will influence your talent—one way or the other.
IF THE PEOPLE CLOSE TO YOU AREN’T ADDING VALUE TO YOUR LIFE, CONSIDER MAKING SOME NEW FRIENDS.
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
There’s a natural law of karma that vindictive people, who go out of their way to hurt others, will end up broke and alone.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.

“I told you it wouldn’t be worth it,” he said. “Your friend is dead and you are mortally wounded.”
“It was worth it, though, sir,” said the soldier.
“What do you mean; worth it?” responded the Lieutenant. “Your friend is dead.”
“Yes, Sir” the private answered. “But it was worth it because when I got to him, he was still alive and I had the satisfaction of hearing him saying, “Jim…, I knew you’d come.”
Many times in life, whether a thing is worth doing or not, really depends on how you look at it.
Take up all your courage and do something your heart tells you to do so that you may not regret not doing it later in your life.
May each and every one of you be blessed with the company of TRUE FRIENDS.
A true friend is one who walks in, when the rest of the world walks out. War doesn’t determine who’s right. War only determines who’s left.
