The love, honesty and support of close friends is an essential ingredient to a life of purpose and joy. Finding such jewels can be a lifelong pursuit if your heart is not ready to accept them. You must not only be ready to share your heart with others, you must be willing allow them to share their hearts with you.

Being willing to give blessings but not receive them sours any relationship. Love must flow with blessings both ways or one becomes too full and the other too empty and both suffer.
