She saw each new encounter as an opportunity to find a real friend. Today was no exception…as she walked through her son’s school parking lot and scanned the faces there was nothing familiar to quell her anxiety.
Though friendship was something she sought out no one seemed too receptive. Wall after wall kept going up with each conversation.
Why is it so hard to find a “real “person these days? Someone willing to engage.
At the close of the day, when volunteering was done she found herself in deep thought.
“What is it about me that people just don’t let me in?” “Am I that different from them?” “Are they just stand-offish or is it me?” Anxiety suddenly turns into self doubt and self doubt into loneliness.
There are various kinds of people in this world with all different types of needs. Don’t let others lack of interest, rudeness or just plain apathy drive you to conform to who they are. The focus should be on the only true friend that will always be there for you. The one you can always count on.The one who will always be real with you.
Continue to follow your heart as long as your heart is really following Jesus.
One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend.
