Friendship is one of the most beautiful experiences in life. Throughout my life, I have understood what it means to be a friend, to have a friend, and to be in a friendship with someone, but also what is a breakup and what it is like. Friendship is something that is less and less imbued with true quality. What I see around me today are relationships whose reason is to make friendships and acquaintances in order to exploit someone’s connections or influences.
Friendship is misunderstood by most people today. It does not matter whether it is an exploitation related to monologues that results in the strengthening of the ego of the person holding the monologue or it is an exploitation for the sake of intelligence, knowledge or business connections. These are not friendships. These are the selfish goals of individuals. This is not a bad thing if you talk about these people as good acquaintances. Otherwise, it is misunderstanding of the essence of friendship.
A person cannot have many friends. They can have so many that they can count them on the fingers of one hand. Everything else is acquaintances.
