You only need two close friends in which you can trust and dedicate yourself to. Having too many friends can lead to depression and stress.

Law of Attraction


Moving as much as I did growing up, you’d think I would have had a challenging time finding friends. I would have if I became intimidated and fearful.  I could very well have done so and no one would have blamed me.

That’s NOT who I am!


If I wanted to have friends, I had to be the one to make the first move.  I’m still that way. I have lot’s of people I call friends, but I can count on one hand the number of people who REALLY know me and know ALL of my secrets.  It’s quality NOT quantity that I strive for.


I see this on “social”  ALL THE TIME:
The race to accumulate the most followers, the most “friends.”  And how is that working for you?  Are ALL of these people in your virtual circles helping you?  


How many of them share your content?
How many of them comment?


As in the real world, I’d rather have people in ALL my circles, both virtual as well as physical who do their best to help me improve.


It’s quality over quantity.


Being an introvert at heart it can be challenging for me sometimes to reach out, however as I said earlier if I want to make friends it is up to me to make the first move.  And as I’ve said at Wisdom and Life on previous occasions, I THINK my intuition is spot on most of the time.  I can usually tell within a matter of minutes whether I feel compatible with someone.  I’d rather have one or two friends who know me implicitly, knows all of my secrets and still want to be my friend then a whole host of friends who know only certain parts of me.  While it is important to be liked by many, I think it’s more important to be loved by a few despite all our secrets, flaws and weaknesses.   I’m fortunate to have found my genetic friends.


These people are very important to me and even if we don’t see each other as often as I’d like we are all still connected and when we do get together we can pick up as if we’d just seen each other a day earlier.  

How many of you can say that?
How many of you have such friends?


Friendship, love:
That’s what makes the world go round.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

    Yes, true friendship is a gift, indeed, Chris! It’s never about the quantity, as you say here, but about the quality.

    there is family, there are close friends and then there are friends and then friends f friends,etc.. We all need “connections” to our universe to keep us grounded and we have an innate need to be heard, loved and appreciated at some point. I like to say “never let a Soul pass you by”. For me, this works
