Did you know that there are A, B & C friends that can either elevate your life or tear it down? We aren’t trying to put a label on friendships but using A,B & C will allow us to explain how the B & C friends may bring limitations to your life and how important it is to be an “A” friend.
Where Are Your Limitations When It Comes To Friendships?
“A” friends are those who bring uplift, encouragement and joy to your life. They only want the best for you and give their best to you. They also try to get the best out of you so you can thrive. What’s interesting about the ‘A’s is that they are conscious of love all the time, and choose love again and again, even when they fail.
“B” friends are encouragers but also tend to criticize and tear down others with their critical nature some of the time. They are willing to learn how to be a better friend as long as it doesn’t inconvenience them. What’s interesting about the ‘B’s is that they are conscious of love, but only part of the time. Without realizing it, they choose to be apart from love as well.
“C” friends are those who are negative in actions, and behavior, and will bring your energy level down when they walk into a room. Not only do they think negatively, but they would like others to live in a negative environment with them as well. What’s interesting about the ‘C’s is that they are not consciously aware of feeling or giving love. Low self-worth and addictions play a huge role, and sadly, they remain stuck in their negative patterns.
Most people have lived in one, or all three, of these categories during their life. We know that being love and giving love is the greatest of all friendships. We are eternally grateful for those who pray for us when our behavior is in the B & C categories. They chose not to be around us, however, they never gave up on us. They made certain we knew they still cared via cards or phone calls every so often.
So we want to encourage you to choose love by praying for the ‘B’s & C’s, but hang with A’s in 2011. We also want to know who you think is an A-lister in your life. Is it a mother, brother, neighbor, mentor or friend in your A-list? And what do you still need to work on to become an A-lister?
