Cutting people out of your life is easy, keeping them in is hard. –Walter Dean Myers, Slam!
When I was fifteen a friend broke up with me. I remember it like it was yesterday. We were on the phone. She told me that I wanted close friendships. She would prefer to have a lot of friends. But there is a statement she made that I have pondered over and over again. She said I want to be your friend but friendships should not take work. Years later I have decided that I do not agree with what this friend said. People are broken, sinners, and sometimes fail. God knows we aren’t perfect. We should know we aren’t perfect. When you have two broken people it makes a messy relationship. Therefore will relationships take work. We need to realize this. We need to give grace and love to each other. Don’t hold people to standards far to high for them to obtain. Do work on having healthy and whole relationships.
