True friendship is a sacred, important thing, and it happens when we drop down into that deeper level of who we are, when we cross over into the broken, fragile parts of ourselves. We have to give something up in order to get friendship like that. We have to give up our need to be perceived as perfect. We have to give up our ability to control what people think of us. We have to overcome the fear that when they see the depths of who we are, they’ll leave. But what we give up is nothing in comparison to what this kind of friendship gives to us. Friendship is about risk. Love is about risk. If we can control it and manage it and manufacture it, then it’s something else, but if it’s really love, really friendship, it’s a little scary around the edges.
A friend is someone who accepts you for who you are not what you are. They are with you through the good and the bad, the thick and the thin and doesn't try to change you but will tell you when you are in error. If you believe in your friend you will accept their opinion as an optimistic way to improve yourself. No one can tell you who to choose as a friend as you must choose who you are willing to accept failure from because even a friend can let you down but it is up to you to choose who you will allow to let you down
If your entire friendship and history is in jeopardy every time you have an argument or an disagreement, fling that friendship aside. No seriously, fuck it. You shouldn’t have to feel like you’re going to permanently lose a friend any time you don’t agree on something. That’s fucking shit and stressful. Not everyone is going to understand or value the true concept of having a friend and in this day and age, it’s shouldn’t be so difficult nor should it take up so much of your energy. Friends are supposed to make life better.
