If you’re reading this,
It’s because someone read it already, and thought it was alright for you lot to read it.
Just so you’d know, up until Wednesday, I had no idea of what you lot were going to be reading
And truth be told, I wasn’t even ready to write about anything
Because lately, I’ve been feeling stressed out (preparation for university and living in a commercial city is just stressful)
So when my friends said we should hangout on Wednesday, I was down for it…
Mainly, because I had nothing better to do….
So I went, with an intention of just spending my money and going straight home to face the same wahala (trouble) that was bugging me.
But when I was with my friends, I noticed something;
That minute (hours actually), I realised how blessed I was to be surrounded by people who loved me
Because for the time I was with them, everything that was bugging me at that very moment, just disappeared
Even though hanging with them didnt really solve the problem,
(Truthfully, we don’t just have friends so they solve our every problem, sometimes all they have to do is take your mind off that problem for a little bit, and that might be all you need because that’s really all they could give).
So my mind began to meditate on the evening, and I realised that we have different friends for different purposes but in the midst of this diversity, they are all in your life to make you happy.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that we should all appreciate our friends in the same way.
So I thought about this “I will be a good friend to my friends so they can be even better friends to me”.
(It might sound like an ulterior motive, but it’s a win-win motive)
No matter how much money you have, it doesn’t make any sense to be lonely
Or surrounded by people that are just phoney,
So, I guess what today’s article would be about:
It’s about us appreciating people,
It’s about us trying to better ourselves, so we can be surrounded by even better people
They say real recognises real
So if you are real to yourself, you will be surrounded by only real people….
On this note, I hope we stay blessed as we become friends to the friends that are friends to us….
