Friendship is a beautiful union between two. True friendship is a relationship that has love, loyalty, respect, trust and remains unconditional. I have had a craving for friendship, and it all started, because I felt like I was the black sheep of my family. Not having the best relationship with my siblings, which I think is the first place we learn about friendship, the closeness that you see with other families. I yearned to have that, which probably makes me very vulnerable to open my heart to most people that enter in. I have to say that’s one of my weak point. I love to see the good in people, not one to pass judgement, not one to put my foot in their shoes, just to see the good. Today we are challenge by the meaning of friendship. We are put in impossible situations, to question if what you share is genuine or not. Over the years my craving have been slightly curbed. I have discovered that categorizing friendship can be of great importance. Maybe I’m going to be judged, for having to put friendship in categories, but we all do it just we are afraid to say it.
