:: Friendship ::

 

I think many people are awkward when it comes to

Dealing with gratitude.

When I tell them, “Thank u 4 being a Fren"

Some felt it cheesy, while others

Felt they didn’t contribute much to our ‘friendship’

And do not deserve it.

But what is friendship and the notion of being a friend?

A check with Wikipedia gave this result:

Friendship is a term used to denote co-operative and supportive behavior between two or more people. In this sense, the term connotes a relationship which involves mutual knowledge, esteem, and affection and respect along with a degree of rendering service to friends in times of need or crisis. Friends will welcome each other's company and exhibit loyalty towards each other, often to the point of altruism.

To me, a friend is someone that fits this description.

With the limited number of hours a day, most of us

Can only afford time to the treasured few pals, and meetings with other friends can only

Manifest in that occasional lunch meetings or birthday gatherings. That nonetheless,

Is still a friend, and there is no ‘frequency of encounters’ that should dictate what

Makes a friend. Or not.

As long as there is a general sense of well being, and good intentions for each other,

You are a friend to me, and I thank you for that.

In fact, for those that have given me support and encouragement,

Online or offline, for Work or for Play, 5Degrees or otherwise,

I thank you too, and may our friendship go a long way!
