Iron sharpens iron

Sometimes it can take a really long time to find the right people
and other times it doesn't. 

It can be really hard to feel like you're in a place where nobody has the same morals as you or that you have nobody pouring into you. Our instinct is to find people who love us and who we can grow with but sometimes these people don't appear out of nowhere. This is something that I think a lot of us have felt, and it really isn't nice. 

This post has been inspired by a talk I heard on the issues of our generation. One (of many things) that stuck was the way she described us as being disciples of the people we follow on social media. It's honestly one of the truest things I've ever heard. The people we 'follow' have such an impact on our lives, and a lot of the time we don't even notice. 

Whether you're at school, work, college, or Pluto, here are the top three things to look for in friends made of iron:

  1. Non-judgment: You want your friends to love you unconditionally, and if they judge you based on your mistakes, they're not the friends that want to see you grow.
  2. Honesty: Too many times people hide how they really feel and what they really think. If your friends are honest with you, both positively and negatively, you're setting yourself up for a relationship of growth.
  3. Trust: Being honest requires a lot of vulnerability, so it's important to know that your friend values you enough to make you feel safe when you open up.
What are your top three things to look for in a friendship/fellowship? 

Lots of love,
