Joel Osteen talked about friendships a few weeks ago and because of what I have gone through the past twenty years as I have worked diligently on discovering, healing, and growing myself, his talk on friendships resonated deeply with me.
Most of us have heard the saying that when things get rough, we discover how our true friends are, but he also said sometimes that isn’t the real test because people can act of our sympathy and pity.
What he said was the most revealing friendship test is the one where when we start to succeed and achieve our dreams, we discover who our true friends are because they cheer us on, congratulate us, are excited for us, etc.
I am grateful for those kinds of friends in my life, yet I am also very grateful I am one of those kinds of friends because I am not jealous of anyone anymore now that I am living my life based on who I am, my talents, and dreams.
Hoping the same for you.
