But I can listen to you, and together we will search for answers. I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain, nor the future with its untold stories. But I can be there now when you need me to care. I can’t keep your feet from stumbling. I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall. Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine; Yet I can share in your laughter. Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge; I can only support you, encourage you, and help you when you ask. I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship, from your values, from me. I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you. I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you, But I can give you the room to change, room to grow, room to be yourself. I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting, But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back in place. I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be I can only love you and be your friend (Adam Clarke) LikeLiked by 6 people Reply Wow ! LikeLiked by 3 people Reply This is awesome!

I don’t want anyone to spread rumors, fact or fiction, about me. A spirit of listening & validation. A lot of times, what I seek from a friend is validation that my experience is legitimate , and either unique or common to most people so that I feel better about my own life. Carefree & laidback, so that I feel relaxed around them and don’t have to deal with drama. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Great list! How hard was it for you to find such friends?
