Good Friends

I am glad for friends with flaws, not like psychopathic tendencies, larcenous habits, cruel or critical behavior, but flaws that make them empathetic.  It’s good to examine without fear of judgment, not seeking approval, but concern.  Many times I’ve thought, “How could have I have done, said, or acted so badly?  Had I not had someone I could trust, I might have buried that shame, fear, or secret where it would grow like a cancer.  Sharing with a trusted friend gives perspective.  An acknowledged problem is a starting place.

  1. Linda, I enjoyed your book so much. I wrote a review on Amazon. I have met your mother, but I feel like I know her now since reading your book, and just love her happy attitude. You certainly have a gift and I look forward to reading more books by you. Meanwhile, I’ll read your blog!
