“A man’s friendships are one of the best measures of his worth”
Over the last year, me and my younger sister have had a friendship that keeps continuing to grow. We haven’t always been close and infact, we probably would agree, that when we were both little that we couldn’t stand each other for longer than an hour. But as we’ve grown older things changed and now she is one of my favourite people to be around.
There’s something about being around someone who understands you. Someone who doesn’t judge you and someone who knows you. It’s not only like this with my younger sister but in fact all of my sister’s and even my brothers.
Being able to be genuine with someone and feel completely comfortable, in a day where there is judgement and competitiveness with those around us, it can be quite hard to find.
I’ve always craved a deeper connection, something with meaning and consistency. People will continue to change around us, new people will arrive in our lives and people will leave. But having at least one person who stays, although you may change, an unconditional friendship remains.
For the rest of my life I want to be surrounded by genuine, honest, trustworthy, credible and compelling people. I want friends who support me unconditionally and who can be proud of my achievements and in return people who inspire me and who I can be proud of.
