Friendship or Familiarity?


In the course of the weekend, I mused over these questions and I was overwhelmed by a zillion thought.

The yearnings of many of us are all about being simply accepted by people around us.Some of us that are used to having many friends in the past are always calm when we meet a new friend but many that are lone rangers get agitated when we meet new friends.

Many of us that are used to be in a company of many friends understand what is needed to keep the oil of friendship flowing but when we meet a new friend we expect more from them.Friendship becomes rosy and fun-filled when the parties involved understanding the demand and the dictates of friendship expressly but in a situation whereby one of the parties involved is a neophyte, the essence of friendship is always defeated with one party becoming a burden on the other burden.

Friendship can never withstand ego, pride, jealousy and selfishness.At the centre of friendship that will stand the test of time lies mutual understanding, regards and respect with efforts been put in place to stand in the gap for our friends.

Friendship must be sacrificial and selfless.

Friendship is relegated to mere familiarity once it is infested with pride, ego, jealousy and selfishness.

Nobody can claim to be a good friend when pride and ego with disregard and disrespect on display.Any form of this kind of friendship can be classified and categorised as mere familiarity.

Kindly ask yourself,

Are you truly a good friend or mere familiars that have nothing to offer except the display of pride, ego, jealousy, selfishness and backbiting?

Appraise yourself

Check yourself if you are protective enough to stand in the gap for your friends?

Thank you.
