I like to think that I’m qualified to talk about friendship. See, I hardly have any friends, so I can look at the issue objectively, as an outsider. I could get all emotional about the topic of friendship, and the drama that can cause some friendships to end. However, friendship is something that can be considered to be seasonal or unconditional.
So, for me, it’s interesting to look at it from the perspective of our various life stages, and to see which friendships survive each transition. Friendship conjures a few interesting memories for me, the main one was in primary school, where my schoolmates would spend most of break time arguing or discussing various going-ons, from who could have a piece of whose snack to who was whose best friend.
