“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival”…
The truth in this statement though… People often say that the older you get, the fewer your friends, the more your acquaintances and people you “once knew”. So true. I have the crazies in my life I am so grateful to call friends, and I can list them all on one hand. Frankly, I like it that way. There is an uneasiness of sorts when someone says they have “a lot of friends”. What does that even mean?
Isn’t a friend someone you confide in, in the most exposed, unparalleled and name way? and with how many people exactly can you do this with, if you claim you have a lot of “friends”??? Hmmm, something to ponder on ey?
I mean we have all been incredibly hurt by “friends”, but we learn a thing or two from it and we keep it moving. But the beauty of finding that PERSON, who becomes YOUR PERSON- knows your inside and outside, knows how badly you snore, or what a horrible dancer you are, isn’t that just the most amazing thing??
I agree with Rumi, i cannot live without my friends. I can’t picture not calling them everyday, talking junk and then hanging up with a huge smile on my face… Its simply JUST PRICELESS.
I had the dream of spending an incredible holiday with 3 of my besets buddies at the coast in December… and apart from all the things we shared, just the moments of blissful laughter and silence were the most profound. (Hmmm! Gives me a fuggly feeling just thinking about it!! 🙂 )
If you have them… cherish them.
Our friends are the family we HAVE THE PLEASURE TO CHOOSE FOR OURSELVES ❤
Live in light and love ❤
