In the digital age friendships are being reduced to short texts, quick calls or social media’s dispassionate engagement and that’s not helpful.
Face time in person focused on the other person is the better goal.
Any person who makes focused time for you is worth keeping.
A person who brags about how many friends they have doesn’t need at least one of them – you.
A disagreement between the right people with the goal of resolving it is an opportunity for an even richer friendship. A pearl is created from the irritation of sand.
