Thanks for being there for me. I mean thanks for not being a half friend.
When she said "half friend," I was like, huh, I wonder what she means and we went on to talk more about it.
In today's world it's so easy to have thousands of "friends" on Facebook, but in reality we have very few friends. Just think: how many friends will sit with you over coffee or dinner and not look at their phone once? Hard to think of one, right? And how many times have you been at a social gathering (like with real people in real time) and been distracted because you're checking on all your other "friends'" Facebook updates and tweets?
I don't know about you, but I'm sure guilty of doing this. I miss out on being fully present with a few people because I want to stay connected with my 2,000+ Facebook friend list. Sad right? We exchange depth of relationship for a lot of shallow relationships--you like my post, I will like yours, you poke me, I poke you (does anyone really even use that function? Just wondering!)... We live in our cyber worlds disconnected from reality.
So as you enter your weekend, be a FULL-time friend--fully present and engaged with those you're with. Don't (pardon the language) half-ass your friendships.
Have a super weekend! See you on the flip side! xox Natalie
