Few and Real
Friendship, as understood here, is a distinctively personal relationship that is grounded in a concern on the part of each friend for the welfare of the other, for the other's sake, and that involves some degree of intimacy. As such, friendship is undoubtedly central to our lives, in part because the special concern we have for our friends must have a place within a broader set of concerns, including moral concerns, and in part because our friends can help shape who we are as persons. Given this centrality, important questions arise concerning the justification of friendship and, in this context, whether it is permissible to “trade up” when someone new comes along, as well as concerning the possibility of reconciling the demands of friendship with the demands of morality in cases in which the two seem to conflict.
I may have few friends around here where I live thats because I pick who I hang out with. When I have friends is not mean that I see them alone of course its together with family and kids. So its just right to pick the friends whom you can trust not only for yourself but for your family too.
These are the bunch of friends I choose to befriends with here in UK. I meet many but I pick few. These 3 woman are close to my heart and we just get along and our kids too. I count it as a blessings!
