If you had to choose between quality and quantity, what would you choose? Regarding food, most of us would probably choose quality food.
Now I am addressing to all of you my readersâ€¦what about friendships?
What does the word friendship exactly mean to you?
Numerous superficial friends or a few valuable friends you can really count on?
I can make a choice very easily between both solutions mentioned above. I prefer a few quality friendships to numerous superficial so called friendships.
In fact, many people have difficulties in defining words such as Â« friends Â» or Â« friendships Â». Many people merely confuse Â« friend Â» with Â« acquaintance Â».
Some people also prompt to call themselves your friends while they don’t really consider you as such.
I used to consider many people from my hometown as my friends, but things have changed since I decided to really open my eyes about people’s behaviors towards me.
Many people who pretended to be my friends have actually badmouthed me and betrayed me in very cowardly ways and very few have proven to be real friends.
On the one hand, it is quite easy to become my friend. I don’t care about your race, gender, nor sexual orientation. I don’t care if you are young or older either. I don’t make a difference if you’re a graduate or a manual worker nor do I care about your religion and cultural background.
On the other hand, it is quite difficult to become my friend. I do place reliability, loyalty and real friendliness on a high scale. A friend is supposed to be there for me whenever I need him/her. A friend is not supposed to tell me what I want to hear, but the very truth.
A real friend will stick up for me whenever I need his/ her intervention.
We live in a society in which it seems to be trendy to fake friendships and to claim to have numerous friends. But how much of a friend are those friends really?
Next time somebody claims to be your friend, put his/ her intentions under the microscope and test the person before taking his/ her friendship as granted! This will prevent you from numerous deceptions.
