Be the friend...

Be the friend that you want. Form bonds with people and develop friendships. Put aside the technology and interact with people. I know when I'm writing this, technology is such a huge part of society and it's only growing. And young people today aren't forming the bonds with friends and peers as they grow up and it scares me. We don't know the repercussions of this at this point, it's too early and we can't see the future. But I'm hoping you'll make some great friends over the years that you will carry with for all your life.


When I was in High School, a man told me, "you should be able to count your friends on one hand." I thought I had so many friends, I was surrounded by them. I had to remove my shoes to count them all. But I realized years later, they were just acquaintances. Though my life I've made some truly great friends and formed some very special bonds. One I have known since 1st grade... That's about 40 years at the point I'm writing this. Two of them I rode motorcycles with and have known around 20 years. Another I only met recently, since you were born, and yet I feel a strong bond with that person. Two of the above live outside of my State and are 12+ hours away via a car, so seeing them is a treat. I don't get to talk to all of them everyday but when we do get to talk, that bond kicks in.


Friendship is a two way street and though your life you will meet friends that will be there for you. But you in turn need to be there for them when they need you and that's not always easy, because some people are better at helping others and aren't so good at asking for help when they need it... even if it's just someone to talk to. So pay attention to those friends that a close to you and don't take them for granted.
