THE TRUE TEST OF RELATIONSHIP
Real friends are like mirrors, the best of them no matter how sad you are, find a way of relaying to you your true self. But they do it in the light.
I shared with you the other day about MIRRORS and later I was ruminating on its reflection system and I got this:
A mirror will give a true reflection of you when there is light upon you (not upon the mirror)
You don't understand?
STEP 1: Put a mirror before you in the night and turn off every source of light - make the room completely dark - and look at the mirror; what will you see? Nothing!
STEP 2: Get a torch on and point it towards the mirror while the room is still dark, without the torch hitting any part of your body; what will you see? You will see the reflection of the torch only. You won't see your own reflection.
STEP 3: Take the same torch, put in on, and point it towards you as you look at the mirror; what will you see? Now you will see your reflection.
What did I just teach you? Empowerment!
Empowerment in life should not be through your friends - the light is empowerment - but through you. You are only going to show your friend your worth and your value and then he tells you exactly how you look.
These days I see people who depend solely on friends for everything - You are wrong in the superlative order. They want their friends to be their everything; some would even want friends to go visit the toilet for them. Mtcheeew...
Ideal friend should only show you who you really are, by studying you, while you work on yourself; nobody can work on you and nobody should.
WHEN YOU SEE RELATIONSHIPS CRUMBLE, THAT IS A POINTER TO IT.
Someone would want his/her partner to be the Mega Moral Alpha and Omega. It's common to our ladies (to whom it may concern though). "Some" of them don't do anything to add value to themselves; they just graduate from higher institutions and parachute themselves into the house of the husband. Why will your marriage not crumble? Stay there!
"Back to Our Discussion (sorry for the break in transmission)"
When you are to correct a friend, do it in the light of the word. Remember mirrors only serve you when there is light.
Did you hurt a friend of recent?
Just go and apologize - that's maturity.
"My son, if you become surety for your friend, if you have struck your hand with a stranger, You are snared with the words of your mouth, you are taken with the words of your mouth. Do this now, my son, and deliver yourself, when you have come into the hand of your friend; go, humble yourself, and plead with your friend." (Proverbs 6:1-3)
