Friendship .....what do you think of when u think of friendship ? I think of safety , comfort , fun and trust .The Bible says ,A man of many companion may come to ruin but there is a friend that sticks closer than brother. Proverbs 18:24
Todsg , we have Facebook . I have over 900 friends . Does that mean I have 900 friends ? No.Friendship , takes time , it takes trust and Love and vulnerability.
Because of Facebook , it appears I have so many friends . Yes, I know some of them personally . Some our acquaintances .
How do you know if a friend is safe are not ? Do they gossip behind your back ? How many truly close friends do you have ? Do they have your values ?
Friendship defined is the emotions or conduct of friends ,the state of being friends .A state of mutual trust and support .
Hoe do you know when a friendship is over ? If your friend started to hang out with someone new and has been taking time away from your friendship.Other reasons , sometimes you and your friend don't click like you once did .
Whether you've grown apart or the relationship has become toxic, at some point you may need to breakup with your friend,
1)The friendship is one sided2)They betray your trust 3) They don't keep your secrets 4)They are overly negative or pessimistic 5) You have little or nothing to talk about .6) They create and attract drama.7) Thry are passive aggressive when you say no to them .They dismiss it when you raise a concern .They make you feel worse not better ..
So , we all like to have friends , but it takes effort to ge5 and keep a healthy friendship .
