There has been much talk around here lately concerning what constitutes friendship. Depending upon how one defines it, friendship can be very easy to attain or very difficult.
What really is a friend? Are there different types of friendship? Why do friendships seem to come and go? Why are lifetime friendships so rare? When a trusted friend disappoints us or betrays our trust, is that person still a trusted friend?
Other than God's love, or maybe the love of a pet dog, is there such a thing as "unconditional love"? I mean, Cindy says she loves me unconditionally.......but, if I repeatedly lie to her, cheat on her and dishonor her, I don't think that statement applies any more.
