Friendship is a beautiful thing.
They say your true friends are usually those you meet when you are and have nothing.
Those who chase after you when you have 'made it' are typically after something.
This doesn't apply in every case, but you will agree it's generally true. Today, I interact with some friends from school and it seems we just left each other a day ago. We share memories and discuss like we’ve always been in touch.
You see, at that stage of our lives, there was nothing at stake. We developed our bonds purely because of who we were.
Now not all “old” friendships can be continued like that, and that’s okay, you really don’t need that many, if you think about it.
True friendship requires a vulnerability from both parties that a lot of us shy away from today. True friendship requires us to be 'naked', and transparent before each other. It requires a level of intimacy and openness that will scare most of us today. This is because we have so much more to lose if things were to go wrong.
Most adult friendships tend to be superficial; they are mainly entered into for the benefits.
I celebrate my friends today, and if you have some, celebrate them too.
They're not that easy to find these days.
