1. Often we confuse our friends with our aquaintances. Friendships happen naturally, with a mutual energy that is easy and makes sense to our psyche. When we set out to "make" friends or force ourselves to be friends with people, we do the natural process a diservice. 

2. It is not necessary to maintain or form friendships simply because it goes with your current lifestyle. People are not accessories. It does both yourself and others a diservice to treat them as such.

3. Not every friendship is meant to be a "lifetime". It is sometimes difficult to face this because of the role the person or people play in your life and what it would mean to your social circle to discontinue the friendship or friendships. The process of the discontinuation of these friendships comes gradually. There is always a point in the frienship when the definitive "straw" tells you in no uncertain terms to distance yourself and you had better listen. The universe is telling you the season or reason has run its course.

4. Friends are people with whom you share thoughts and feelings, they are people with whom you look forward to spending time, they are people who provide you with support and encouragement rather than drama and conflict. They are not jealous of you, they do not see you as manipulative or dishonest, they do not "tolerate" you, they enjoy you. They want the best for you, they want to see you grow and be happy. Their motives are pure. A phony smile is worse than a spit in the face.

Look around you. Recognize your true friends. Tell them you care for them, be generous to them, enjoy them. Feel it in your psyche, your heart and your intuition. Spend time on cultivating these, ,not struggling with the ones that no longer make you feel like the treasure you are!
