Yellow for friendships….
But have we ever considered who is the ‘friend’ we get on the ship with..
Friend …a person who supports a particular cause
How often are we seduced by friendly behaviors and outward acts of affection only to discover that the person(s) were working for a cause that was not or is not in our best interest? or maybe we have never had this experience or hardly ever? then great!
But for those of us who are easily seduced by false friends
What are the possible checklists or safeguards?
- Being a friend to our-self is the first safeguard. It is the only way we would be prepared to expect and accept only those things that are in our best interest.
- Words are not an indication of intent…behaviors are.
- While behaviors are indicators of intent, intent can be mis-interpreted for better or worse. Therefore another safeguard is to appreciate that ongoing behaviors make sense. Therefore if contradictory behaviors are noticed have self–trust
- Work on feelings of worthiness and lovableness so that there is no value judgement of worthiness if a friendship is not going as expected and therefore it becomes easier to view the relationship for what it is and choose accordingly, rather than hold on to a toxic relationships to preserve feelings of worthiness
If we often find ourselves in false friendships it might be a #redflag that we can benefit from improving our Self Esteem https://karryon.privacemail.com/
