The Importance of Friendship with Huggle

Friendship is one of the most important things in our lives and  Huggle  has asked me to make a list/write about what I think makes a good friend. Huggle is a social app which helps you to discover and connect with people who go to the places you go. It’s a wonderful app for making friends and meeting like-minded people. You can download it here.

I have summed up what I think makes a good friend in a series of quotes below! See if you can spot the Winnie the Pooh inspired one! (Tip: You can find the answer on my Instagram @Prettyandpetit!)

Friends come and go like walks of the ocean but the true ones stick, like an octopus on your face.

Remember you don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of.

It’s not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters.

Everyone needs a friend that will call and say, “Get dressed , we are going on an adventure!”

No one will ever be as entertained by us as us.

Distance means so little when someone means so much.

Someone to share the happiest of memories and the deepest of secrets.

How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

In life have a friend that is like a mirror and shadow; A mirror doesn’t lie and a shadow never leaves.

Promise me, you won’t forget our laughs, our jokes, our smiles, our conversations, our plans, our tears, our memories, our experiences, our friendship.

#LoveMe Challenge – Day 12

Prompts

Share a flaw

I think I have a few flaws – a few weaknesses, but I feel that I am trying to address each of them positively and working towards resolving them. I think my most major flaw however, which may also be seen as a positive, is my ability to care too much about people and things. Christmas, birthdays and weddings I tend to go overboard on family and friends especially with the hampers I have started creating! Whilst this has an obvious negative effect on my bank balance, I do enjoy filling the hampers with things I know my family and friends will absolutely love.

In my career, I always offer to take on additional work with additional responsibility and always want to look after and care for others. When I was younger I wanted to be a nurse, always wanting to care for those who may have fallen in the playground and I am still offering advice to friends now on the best treatments!

I do have a habit to put others before myself. Sometimes this feels like it can put pressure on me and I have in the past managed to overwhelm myself, taking on too much additional responsibility which at a time of a serious bout of anxiety I was undergoing, perhaps was not the wisest decision to make! I do however, like to care and I personally think it is such a lovely quality to have. So whilst I do care a little too much sometimes I do still see it as a positive and now I am just working towards finding a balance.

Do you have any flaws? What do you think they are? How are you working to adapt or rectify them?
