Friendship hurts. Fake friends don’t know our flaws, then hate us when our daily facade wears off and we can’t mask our flaws any longer. Real friends see each others’ flaws and don’t care. Real friends accept each other just as they are.
But, it hurts. Friends do things that hurt us. We may lose the friends we hurt. Can you endure the price of pain required by a real friendship? Most of us fear causing enough pain to earn a worthy friend because we fear the risks of rejection and being injured. But, real friendship makes it worth it.
