Mother’s Advise on a Friend

My mother always advised me that a friend shapes who we are to become.  We are who we hang out with and attract the same kind of people we are.

If you desire to have a good lifestyle, with success, then it is very important to find friends who are wanting the same.

Look back on life when you were a teenager. Teens are driven by the crowd. Many follow, but few are leaders.  The teen years are very challenging in the fact that these young adults are learning who they are and what they want to become.  They are also interested in having a good time. What they do not think about though, is what is a good time, what can be fun, and what activities lead to the future.

It is fun when friends get together for bon fires, parties, and social gatherings. These activities are important in developing friendships and learning to get along socially. However, it is important to find the right activities. Some bon fires, parties and social gatherings will offer drinks with alcohol, or drugs. The leaders of these parties will convince others how much fun it is to get drunk or high.  This type of friend is not interested in other peoples future. Oft times when a group gets busted, then everyone is guilty by association and the consumption of alcohol or drugs will carry on the record of each individual for the rest of their lives.

However, if the young people choose to attend parties of higher standards, they will learn that it is possible to have fun without the use of stimulants. Not only is everyone in their right mind, but they can mastermind anything good with alert minds.


What Standards Are You Interested In?

What standard of life are you interested in? Do you want success in business and other areas of life?

If so, then look for the people who are successful. Get to know them and become their friend. Learn from them and associate in the group they associate in. A good friend will give out advise in a caring manner and be stern when it is important and you will help each other succeed and be better people.

A good friend will be there no matter what and will not judge or condemn, but help build you up.

If you desire a good friend to be there for you, then it is important for you to become that kind of person.



Be Choosey In Finding A Good Friend

It is all right to have several friends of many different flavors, but do be choosey when hanging with someone on an every day basis.

Look for a friend who:

  • Is positive on life
  • Successful
  • Good work ethics
  • Builds others up
  • Has a good family relationship
  • Honest

A true friend is worth more than all the gold in the world!
