What better way to celebrate your friendship than to have a very personal get together. A perfect time to have all of those silly delicious snacks you both enjoy, and to sip your favorite tea.
Friendship means something different to everyone, except for a few common perceptions. A friend is there for you when you need them the most. A friend is someone you can turn to when you feel alone, or need someone to talk to. When you feel as though no one in the world understands what you are going through – a friend, your friend, will understand every bit. They will never turn you away when you are in need, and they will never walk away and leave you behind.
A Friend in Need…
A friend in need is a friend indeed. That is the saying. But why? Why is it that when we are in need, we are being a true friend? The answer is rather simple, really. You see, when you are in need, and you are open about it with your true friend, you are being open. You are being vulnerable. Vulnerability is the ultimate testament of friendship. Helping someone is heartfelt and kind, but having the ability to ask for help shows your friend that you trust them. You trust them enough to let them in.
What Goes Into Friendship?
Flaws. Differences. Love. Anger. Trust. Joy. Many things make a friendship work. Not just the things you both have in common, but the things that make you both very different from one another. The reason why these friendships work best, is due to balance. One thinks with their heart, while the other uses only logic. One relies on their gut feelings, while the other relies on facts and proof. These things are the very things that draw you both together. These things allow you to both become the balance you each need.
Tea can be cold or warm, sweet or natural. Tea takes many ingredients, and blends them together. The ingredients create a sense of balance. They are each very different, but together, they create a perfect whole. Each ingredient alone is special, but combined – together – they create something new. The similarities between tea and friendship are the same unique qualities that binds them together, and ultimately, makes them work. Enjoy them with someone you call a friend, today.
