Songs to Invoke Friendship
The art of being a good friend is both subtle and overt. You all know how to be a good friend. In fact, I am certain of it. However, this does not mean you succeed all the time. Friends fail. It happens.
Friendship must include both the success and failures between friends. It cannot be limited solely to the good times, to the exclusion of the bad. If you demand this of your friends, then you are requiring something which you cannot yourself achieve.
To honor your friends, you should make friendship a priority as primary as love, family, personal growth, and self-esteem, simply because these things are really facets of the same delicate treasure of our humanity. As social creatures, we thrive upon the connections we develop with our friends. If you want to know the true measure of a person, then evaluate the people whom the person chooses to keep as friends.
We are, of course, ourselves. But, so much of the definition of that self is interconnected with our friends, as defined by our friendships. So, hold your friendships dear. Sustain your friendships, and be sustained in return.
