Card of the Day: BALANCED FRIENDSHIPS
(Courtesy of the Flower Therapy Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue & Robert Reeves)
“Your friendships work best when there’s an equal share of giving and receiving.”
Everyone deserves to have healthy and balanced relationships – and this does included friendships. This card that was drawn for today is a reminder to take some time in reflection and ask yourself “Are my friendships and relationships balanced and nurturing?” “What do I get out of these friendships/relationships?” “What do I value from these friendships/relationships?”
Friendships and relationships on a whole are based on trust, mutual understanding, clear communication and a balanced on both ‘give and take’. True friendships (and true relationships) are willing to come to your aid if you need help – as you are wiling to the same for them if the situation arises.
However, there will be people who will take advantage of your kindness, and of your compassion. These ‘so-called’ friendships (or relationships) will only cause tiredness, frustration and exhaustion. This type of friendships or relationships are too draining and need to be stopped. All you can do is to wish these people all the best of luck in their futures; ending things peacefully and respectfully.
It’s not that you don’t wish ill-will or hate against anyone, but rather you prefer to be more conscious and self-aware of your own self-worth and self-respect. You much prefer to spend time with those people who respect and understand your boundaries as much as you will respect and understand theirs.
Again, friendship is all about giving and taking – it’s not about being too reliant on other people but to realize that everything in life requires balance….and this includes friendships as well as having a balance in emotions within the relationship within oneself.
Much love to y’all,
