Friends w/o Benefits
One of the more recent catch phrases that our society has overused is that of “Friends With Benefits.” Most of us know that it describes the relationship between two people who are friends, in which there are special benefits enjoyed in that union. That is where it often gets complicated.
In a world where we are bombarded by sexually suggestive images and phrases, how can we ever believe that it is possible to have an opposite-sex friendship that shares no benefits? Or is it inevitable that that “line” is going to be crossed at some point and time? I thought a benefit is supposed to be a good thing.
I choose to believe that men and women can be friends…in the true sense of the word. Friends with no hidden agendas. Friends who truly seek the best for one another…even if it means nothing else will ever transpire between them. Friends who will celebrate with you in times of conquest. And who will mourn with you in times of sorrow. This is the true meaning of friendship.
Giving without expectation is truly a higher-consciousness opportunity.
Try it…you’ll like it. There is a benefit to this…I promise.
