These two were a hoot to work with to capture their friendship! Marivel and Sam came to the session ready to have fun and laugh with each other. Of course they looked BEAUTIFUL! As I ponder and think about the people I have met and are in my life, I am blessed and grateful to be able to call some amazing people my true friends. What makes a worthy friend? I love these three simple points below (courtesy of Psychology Today). What Makes a Friend Worthy of the Name?
- A commitment to your happiness. A true friend is consistently willing to put your happiness before your friendship. It’s said that “good advice grates on the ear,” but a true friend won’t refrain from telling you something you don’t want to hear, something that may even risk fracturing the friendship, if hearing it lies in your best interest. A true friend will not lack the mercy to correct you when you’re wrong. A true friend will confront you with your drinking problem as quickly as inform you about a malignant-looking skin lesion on your back that you can’t see yourself.
- Not asking you to place the friendship before your principles. A true friend won’t ask you to compromise your principles in the name of your friendship or anything else. Ever.
- A good influence. A true friend inspires you to live up to your best potential, not to indulge your basest drives.
