Friendship is a Two-way Street

“If you look in the dictionary it will tell you that the definition of friendship is a state of being friends; friendly relation, or attachment, to a person, or between persons; affection arising from mutual esteem and good will; friendliness; amity; good will.

If you are never around, or I never hear from you what type of friend is that? If I always have to reach out for us to speak or hang out, what type of friendship is that? If I am in a place of struggle and I can’t depend on you, what type of friend is that? I’ve always taken friendship seriously.

Friendship is a two-way street. Any relationship is a two-way street. It should always be mutually beneficial. So if you too busy to support, then let’s go our separate ways and know that there is no hard feelings between us. Just a simple text “Hey girl, I’m checking in. How’s everything?”, shows the person you care. It’s the little things my friends. Be a friend to your friend!
