Have you heard a saying: tell me who your friend is, and I will tell you who you are? It’s very true! There’s even an exercise connected with this – write down 5 of your closest friends; then describe their main characteristics. Chances are you have the majority of you friends’ personality traits.
We usually choose people who are like us in one way or another. At the same time, we influence each other over time. So, after being friends for a number of years we become similar in certain ways.
Is it bad? I don’t think so. It’s wonderful to influence each other and learn from one another. It’s amazing that we can understand our friends without saying a word sometimes.
Friendship is a complicated and fascinating thing. Let’s talk about it in more detail tomorrow. See ya!
