Friends, we all have them. Friends come and friends go throughout ones lifetime. There are friends that are always there for you through your darkest moments and then there are friends that will be there in that dark moment if you call them. The best friends in the whole world are the ones that listen. At most times when we are visiting the dark we just need to put our thoughts out into the world verbally. Once you put that type of energy into your darkness you are actually adding light or a positive force. I so enjoy a good friend that will listen… and not necessarily feel that they have to counsel you, but just to listen. I believe I have just a few of those friends. They will always be there for me when I need to verbally let go of the darkness that haunts me at times.
We all know that dark place and actually, I am learning on my spiritual journey here that we do need that dark place. It is vital to growth. It is where we take ourselves to try to heal. Upon finding an outlet, such as the friend who listens, they are actually giving you the strength to grow. I am finding fewer and fewer of these people. The ones who will put aside , “OH yea, I went through that same experience….. bla, bla, bla…” and you end up feeling worse than you did before you tried to put your words out there. People tend to not listen. I am one of them, but I try very hard to be an ear when someone needs to verbally grow. There is no purpose to put my junk on top of a friends. Leave it, just leave them chat.
I didn’t intend to write this, I intended something different. but that will wait for another day. As you may guess that I have finally found the way to listen to my Inner Being. This is also new to me as is this blog. I hope you enjoy this time together. Please feel free to share your thoughts. Peace and love, ~jean
