Be an Encouragement
Posted by: andrew william, 25-Oct-2007
I am ever so grateful for friends during adversity compared to those who hang around you when things are going well. I have very few good friends of such who are like a beacon or light when you are in pain or when life seem like you are treading through darkness. The world has enough people who will discourage you. Life is at times very trying and challenging.
Consider others better than yourself
When things don’t go so well, true friends are the ones who will take time to check on you. Sometimes the simplest gestures such as saying encouraging words, visiting you or a phone call, are the ones you will value the most.
These genuine friends may not hang around you most of the time or even when you are having fun, but will be there when you are distressed or discouraged. The ones whom you spend a great time with, may not be there for you when things don't go too well.
Let us be that friend to others… true friends who will not take others for granted.
