Friends Love At All Times

"Friends always show their love. What are brothers for if not to share troubles?" - Proverbs 17:17 (interpreted)

How many of us consider ourselves independent? Do you like to bother others with your troubles, or would you rather keep them to yourself and work them out on your time? When friends ask, "What's wrong", do you just say nothing and put a smile on your face to cover it up? I'm sure that in one way or another, we've all fell victim to this. Many of us go through periods in our lives feeling afraid and alone. Why is this? One of the reasons may be because we are afraid to open up and expose ourselves.

You may have heard the phrase, "People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime." As hard as it may be to believe, it's the truth. God doesn't put us through situations or bring people into our lives for nothing. Everything we encounter and go through has a purpose. So use those people we consider friends in family to help us through hard times. God never puts more on us that we can bear, share some of the burden with a friend. They'll understand and still love you the same.

    i kinda agree.... the only reason i dont open up to people is because im hard headed and dont take advice. I dont kno what it is but i always felt like i was born alone and ima di alone, we come into what we know as friends and family but much like everything, u simply cannot take it w/ u when ur gone. Dont get me wrong, im always gunna have my friends back but in the same breath i feel like i can only watch my own, the best.
