What if... friends really aren’t as important as we may think?
Let me clear up right away that I did not just say friends are not important at all. I merely eluded that they aren’t AS important. I am fully aware that friends, if the right kind, can be extremely beneficial as well as a blessing to our lives.
However, on the flip side, they can be detrimental as well. Some can hurt us, others can betray us. They tend to be a distraction (though distractions, at times, are necessary). And even still, they can turn us into people we don’t want to become should we let them.
Every time you make a friend, you take a risk. Sometimes the risk is well worth it... Other times it’s not. Make sure you’re aware and careful who your friends are.
