In this present time of social media razzmatazz, the concept of friendship has completely been redefined. The world is getting increasingly connected yet friends are getting increasingly disconnected. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and a host of others have made it very easy to recruit friends with the power of a button, yet unfriend them using the same.
But hey! The question remains, ‘Are we truly friends in the real sense of the word?’ Given that the notion of friend in a digital era like ours is used largely in a very loose manner. Well, that’s a subject for another day as my focus on this post is to help you see the correlation between friendship and success.
When our children are young, we can do a pretty good job of monitoring who they can play with and who they need to stay away from. But as they get older and make choices of their own, they may choose friends (or someone may choose them) that you don’t approve of. I’ve learned from experience that you can grow in a situation in which your children are hanging out with people you personally don’t prefer.
