What is true Friendship?

Friendship is one of the many pivotal relationships our life circles around. Friends form the important part of our day-to-day lives, and influence us to extents much beyond our common perception. Though friendship sounds so Universal, some of us do find the concept to be pretty alien. The reason could be anything – incompatibility, withdrawn attitude, doubts, insecurity, you name it!

Mentioned below are few tips with reference to key areas we tend to overlook in any relationship, let alone friendship. I want to clarify here that these are not steadfast rules of some kind… Consider them simple ‘art of living tips’ on relationships.

Tip-off #1
Be your own friend.
Yes, you gotta be your own best pal. This is the first and most important step. You don’t do this right, then you screw the whole process! You have to love yourself and treat yourself the way you want others to treat you. Adore and appreciate yourself for all possible amazing things you can think about yourself.

Tip-off #2
In friendship, what matters most is not what you get, but what you give.
Don’t get caught up focusing on what your friends do for you and don’t. Pay attention to what you give to the relationship. All you gotta do is, do your part and do it good. Your duty is YOU and not your friends.

Tip-off #3
Loving selflessly and generously NEVER hurts.
Don’t be afraid to give love. Many people have tough time with their relationships because they are intimidated by the very thought of loving generously. The reason why love so intimidating is because of the possible chance of love not being reciprocated. Okay, let me make two things clear:

One, Love is not a limited source! You have enough love to give for every living soul! Love is infinite! So give your love with no fear. It’s not gonna cost you anything and it comes with tons of personal benefits

So go for it. Love.
And second, reciprocation is not everything. As I mentioned earlier, you do your part and the rest, leave it to your friend, it’s not your problem.

Tip-off #4
The nicest of things that your friends have done for you weighs much more than their actions that hurt you.
Okay, face it, we all make mistakes and disappoint people we love. So when your friend does something wrong or hurts you by any means, don’t cling to it. Let go. But hold on to the good stuff… forever!
An After Thought
Being selfless, doesn’t mean letting people exploit your kindness. Lavish love, don’t squander it. Watch your back.
