a decent friend…

I heard a quote today

“One decent friend is worth more than a hundred mediocre relatives”

I have to say I wholeheartedly agree on that point. There is nothing that feels quite as pleasant as getting to spend some time with someone who’s energy you plain enjoy and who allows you to relax and actually feel comfortable being yourself.  Someone whose energy seems to build up your spirit rather than deplete it. Those people are a rare find, and they are worth the world!

Not saying you can’t find that kind of relationship with family members, but it definitely isn’t  as much of a “guaranteed” thing as we are initially led to believe when it comes to family.

In the end its not actually the similarities of your blood that make the strongest bonds… it ends up being the complementary effects of two different people’s energy and how much synergy is found that is the most rewarding.
