Friendships are very much like garden clubs. Friendships consist of women with shared interests meeting regularly to cultivate and grow relationships. What happens when weeds form within the "garden?" The weeds spread rapidly, creating a major nuisance. Sometimes, unfortunately, when friendships are causing us more harm than good, they must be weeded out. A true friend only wants to see you bloom. When you are wilting they water you. When you are basking in the sunlight, they are basking in your glow.
Some friends, even those we love dearly, just seem to insist on spreading poison, leaving a barren garden in their wake. What they don't realize, is if they spent half as much time focusing on their own happiness, instead of worrying about everybody else, their life would begin to bloom with endless possibilities.
In the end, we are each responsible for our own happiness. We can be overtaken by weeds or we can grow and flourish. We can choose to eliminate relationships that are harmful when necessary. Ask yourself this, "How does this person make me feel when I'm around them?" A friend should lift you up, not drag you down, stress you out, or put you on the defense constantly.
