Presence vs. Daily Interactions
A friend of mine (bff) is undergoing several life events (aka Tough times).
She used to hang out with colleagues/friends every day. You know, go out, drinking, partying, and games ect. What’s ironic is this: Just because you see someone every day doesn’t mean you are close or that they will be there for you.
Interesting. And very true.
It got me thinking ; there’s a difference with “presence”. Presence is ‘being there’ in the good and bad, relied upon; a peace and certainty that person is there whenever you need them or when you don’t, either way you can count on them.
Versus people who are just there. Sure, because interact with them every day it would seem they are ‘there for you’ but when life hits you…indeed, may not be the case. Life trials will help “weed out”.
But for now, it’s a great reminder to spend time to with those that matter— rather make time with the people who have presence in your life. At the end of the day those are the ones you will turn to.
