It has been said that there are two kinds of people: those who brighten the room when they enter, and those who brighten the room when they leave. I prefer to be with friends I can laugh with. People who consistently bring us down with their problems and complaints are generally not the ones we want to pal around with for any length of time. Of course, sometimes a friend will go through a difficult time, and we need to be ready and willing to provide a listening ear. But a friend in need is different than a habitual whiner. We want our friendships to be positive and uplifting and that means we must be positive, uplifting friends ourselves.
