Be a Friend

By Ken McIsaac

"Friendship improves happiness and abates misery by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief." --Marcus Cicero (BC)
Interacting amiably with family and friends is a super stress reducer. Instead of our minds working overtime on worrisome problems, it is occupied with thoughts of other things and other people. There is less room left for anxieties and self-doubt. Good friendship is like good health - appreciate it while you have it.
"Life has no blessing like a prudent friend" --Euripides (BC)
"The only way to have a friend is to be one... A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud." --Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
Getting people to like you is the starting point, and it should be fairly easy to do. People have a basic need to be liked themselves, and by showing your appreciation of them, they will return your feelings. Praise given out sincerely is a great act of friendship. Be kind, pleasant, calm, and a good listener. Try to see the good, not the bad qualities in people. Smile.
"The rule of friendship means there should be mutual sympathy between them, each supplying what the other lacks and trying to benefit the other, always using friendly and sincere words." --Buddha (BC)
"As a friend, try to let an unfavorable incident or remark fly right over the top of your head. We all blurt out something stupid or do something regrettable at times, and it's so nice when the other acts as if it never happened. This is a dear friend." --Abe Lincoln (1809-1865)
Ken McIsaac is a self-help enthusiast and web author of "32 Keys: A Collection of Ideas About Life." This free-to-read book has been available online since 1999. It is classified into 32 basic ideas on the subject of improving the quality of life.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
