True Friendship- (noun, verb) troo frend-ship

Guess what? IT’S OUR 100TH POST!

I seriously can’t believe it. Sending love to all of our readers; you are beautiful.

For our 100th post, I thought it would be a good idea to write about something that defines The Duck & The Owl: friendship.

Friendships, just like any other kind of relationship, are sometimes hard to get a good grasp on. We screw up, make mistakes and get hurt. We learn. Sometimes it takes a long while and a lot of experiences to know what true friendship is. I mean, look back at middle school, not many true friendships existed there, that’s for sure.

And I’ll be the first to admit, it took me an embarrassing amount of time to realize and recognize true friendships in my life, and to be a whole-hearted friend myself.

True friendship is hard to define, but, here is what I know for certain:

  • True friendships (or any kindImage of relationships) aren’t in grand gestures. They are in simple, every day gestures that show true care and compassion. It may be a small check-in text, or positive message. It might be in a surprise cup of coffee or letter. It’s the continual  little things that show compassion, not the sporadic big things.

  • True friendship is being with someone on their lowest of low days. It’s insisting on being there even when they say you don’t need to be. That’s when you really need to be.

  • True friendship is being a complete goon with each other without second thought; there’s no one you need to impress.

  • True friendship is the knowledge every day of how lucky you are to have that person in your life.

  • True friendship is not disguised by fake smiles and words, but is genuine reassurance and actions.


I am so blessed to have true friendships in my life. Every day I am amazed by the generosity and love I receive from them. I honestly don’t know what I would do without them. I treasure them dearly.

What are some stories of your true friendships? 

Oh, hello!
