When We Honestly Ask Ourselves

When We Honestly Ask Ourselves

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
― Henri Nouwen

  1. Nope. This kind of vision is for imature, hypocrite and self-interested people. Courageous people prefer the ones that tell them they fucked up their family, they fucked up their responsabilities as a parent, they cheated, they lie to god (if they prey), they will face their own karma coz karma is only a bitch if you are, etc… These are true people you keep in your life when you're not self-interested and vicious. You're a courageous lion or a vicious and self-interested sheep.

  2. The only person that means a lot to me is my Darkness.Never for a moment does she leave me alone.She holds my hand ,touches my heart and she says ,"Don't worry I am always with you ".

    She holds my hand and touches my heart and with a smile she says,"Do worry every things is going to be ok because I am with you".

  4. 🙂 Such a friend is a rare blessing of God…and fortunate are the ones who have been privileged to have such a person in their lives! The most unique ingredient of these kind of bonds is that there is nothing to pretend or modify or hide! An unconditional acceptance and transparency is the biggest asset. 🙂

  5. Very nicely depicted what should be our expectation from the heart and soul of a friend. Very few have that kind of tender hand, sympathetic heart who handle the different shades of lives with care. They are just not friends rather they can be termed as soulmate. When this relationship matures and deepen with love , it bring all the goodness of lives. But we must not forget to Discriminate between love and epicurian approach, artificial depthless flattering. We get mesmerised with the sweet illusory words which ultimately leads many times to the world of misery. It is also to be kept in mind that the person may swim against the flow but does he really trying to hurt anybody or trying to go to the deep or just creating superficial ornamental picture. One should not judge someone not from personal or single perspective but from different angles and perspective of lives.
