Be positive!

Be fair!

You know the saying – treat others how you want to be treated, right? It also works the other way round 😉 – expect from others what they can expect from you.
:::
Don’t expect somebody to be honest with you if you’re not honest with them ⚠️
Don’t expect somebody to hear you out if you don’t listen to them. ⚠️
Don’t expect somebody to help you if you never help them. ⚠️
Be fair!
:::
Don’t be surprised that somebody isn’t telling you some secrets or personal things if you don’t share some personal stuff with them or if you can’t keep a secret 🤷🏼‍♀️. Would you tell them a secret of yours if you’d know that they’d tell it everyone around? 🤔
:::
Then when somebody is telling you something personal or confessing of their problems don’t reply with „Ahh, that’s nothing. My situation is even worse…” 🙄 or ‘fight’ over who is in worse situation „You’re tired? Believe me, I’m more tired!” 😏 Nobody likes that! Let him/her talk, hear them out 👂and then when they’re finished and are ready for some advices you can compare their situation to yours, tell them what helped you, how you’re dealing with such situation etc but don’t make it about you. 😉 Let this moment be about him/her, focus on your friend and let them feel heared out. Your time to confess and complain about your sitation will come, don’t worry 😉
:::
And finally, don’t expect somebody to help you if you’ve never helped them! Why would they do that? 🤔 It should work both ways! E.g. at work – ask somebody to do something for you but also offer to do something for them from time to time 😉
:::
Let’s all treat each other how you’d like to be treated, be fair with others and never let a relationship work only one way 🙏

Forgive and forget?

Do you know the saying „Forgive and forget”? Do you agree? I do but in half. 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
We definitely should forgive but why should we forget? If, for example, someone let us down or, even worse, hurt us why should we forget about it?
:::
Forgive – sure (when you’re ready) but we should still remember about it. We should remember to e.g. never trust that person again. We should remember this mistake we made (e.g. in trusting someone), draw conclussions and never make it again. 🤗
:::
It may be harsh but nowadays we really need to be careful who we trust, believe me. I think, and I reckon you will all agree with me, we want friends who we can count on, who will never betray us, who we can rely on. 👭👬 And I know this friendship exists. It may be harder to find, it may take some work to keep it alive but it is so important to have that one good friend in life. ❤ That’s right, one is enough. Go for quality, not quantity. 🙏
:::
I am very careful who I call a „friend” so I don’t have many of them (I have plenty buddies/acquaintances though!) but I do have some people who would do anything for me and I’d do anything for them 🤗. That’s what friendship should be about. Love, laughter, help and trust. 💕
:::
So I say forgive but don’t forget. Choose your friends wisely.
