When I was younger, I was surrounded by a lot of people that I would call friends. Little did I realise that being around them all the time started corrupting my character.
This is why a lot of people always say, surround yourself around people who inspire you. People who share the same vision as you. Because as you learn from them, they can learn from you. And you can grow together in love and strength.
Being surrounded with harsh people who have a completely discouraging view of life can drain you can really start to have an affect on you. It can also cause you to think differently about some things, even yourself. Try to notice how they make you feel about who you are as a person. Not everyday will be perfect with friends, as we are all human. But its always good to have that solid knowing that they truly care for you and are striving to be the best people they can be. If you have any doubts, give it to the Lord and He will give you clarity.
Ask God to show you and bring the right people into your life, as He brings you into the lives of others that you will help towards their destiny.
I hope this has helped you in any way if you’re feeling uncertain about friendships. The truth is, God is the only friend who will always be there for eternity with you. Our loved ones come and pass away eventually one day. But the Lord is eternal. Yield into Him and He will also show you the friends ordained for your life.
take care xx
