Opening ourselves up to an incomplete perspective exposes us and can be scary and uncomfortable. It is bearable when done with the right person. There are people we are friendly with and there are friends that might as well be family. Unfortunately, the lines have been blurred and definitions of friendship diluted by Facebook’s friend request system. Our friends care about us enough to tell us the truth about ourselves without allowing that truth to change their opinion about us. People who cannot do both are not friends but we can always choose to be friendly.
