Throughout our life, we meet people on our journey who are unforgettable. As we develop friendships with people, we grow with them, hold each other accountable, and encourage one another to grow and evolve. It’s interesting that the same archetypal friends appear in everyone’s life, as if it’s woven into the template of the universe that each soul will experience certain characters on their journey.
The older you get, the more you realize how important, or unimportant some friendships are.
When it comes down to it, life is about loving relationships. It’s not about the rat race, proving your point, or building a cozy nest for yourself. Without relationships, live becomes empty. This is why it is so important to recognize the people in your life who are worth fighting for.
Here are 7 archetypal friends that are worth fighting for in life:
1) The generous one
The one who gives more often than they take. They want to make sure everyone is happen and content with their end of the deal. From big things like buying you gifts out of nowhere, to little things like letting you take shotgun in the car, the generous one is an inspiration that service to others is the happiest path you could take in life.
2) The listener
The one who is always down for a heart-to-heart. They want to help you through your pain, and enjoy acting as a vent for you to clear your mind and energy field of stagnant energy. They do this because they are naturally empathetic and sympathetic people, and know what it’s like to feel alone, scared, or hurt. The listener is the kind of person you could be best friends forever with.
3) The uplifter
The one who always encourages you to look on the bright side of things. Didn’t get the job you want? Maybe the Universe has bigger and better plans for you. Didn’t get the girl you wanted? Maybe she wasn’t the proper vibrational match for you and your soul mate awaits you just around the corner. For everyone hardship you go through, they offer a positive perspective which helps level out your energetic and psychological state. Being around them is super regenerating and refreshing.
4) The comic
The one who approaches all situations in life with light-heartedness. After all, isn’t laughter the best medicine? Sometimes, they may push the boundaries with their sense of humor and sarcasm, but they do it all with good intentions. Having a comic in your network of friends, or having someone who can be a comic with you, is priceless.
5) The honest one
The one who tells you what you need to hear, even if you don’t want to hear it. The honest one shoots straight with you to help you understand your own actions and behaviors from outside your own personal perspective. If you can look passed any defensive instincts you may have, you may just realize that having someone like this in your network of friends is exactly what is needed to help push you into expansion.
6) The big dreamer
The one who wants to take on the world. They want to reach millions, change the world, and influence as many lives as possible. These people usually have great leadership qualities, and can offer a huge burst of inspiration into your life. They teach you to set bigger goals, have faith in yourself, follow your passions, and they do this all be setting the example with your own life. Keep these people around you. Sometimes, the best way to improve your life is to surround you with people who encourage you and motivate you just by being themselves.
7) Your soul mate
The one who just clicks with you. You guys resonate at such a deep and transparent level that it deserves to be called more than just a “friendship”. It feels as though you both decided to incarnate together and help each other on your journeys. Your soul mate may not be your partner. They may just be the person that your soul connects with at the deepest level. Friends like this come around once in a lifetime. Sometimes, less. Never let these people go.
Friendships like these and the memories they created are what you will take with you when you leave this world. Cherish these people, and remember that they there is nothing more important in life than connecting with other souls.
