Friends should not be put on a leash. When you have real friends you should allow them to meet. Sure some of them might not get along at first (or at all) but if they care about you, that common interest should be enough. Every friendship functions differently.
Why do some people like having Splinter Cells (groups)?
Splinter Cells are small groups that separate & operate independently of each other & each serves a particular purpose.
Whether that is done because you like having a “getaway” from the norm or because you have your own messed up insecurities, it’s not fair to your friend(s). It’s not fair to keep people apart because you feel that you will no longer be the center of attention. Look, no one wants to steal your spotlight, well none of your real friends anyway.
So I’ve decided that my friends & other people who think like them should be called “The Non-Conformist Friendship Party” because we like to mix & mingle with everyone. Friends, families & love interests are welcome to join us without fear of exclusion, judgment or griping about attention. We’re friends because we actually like each other. It’s not about race, money, creed, looks or labels.
At the end of the day it’s about trust & respect. We trust that we’ll be in each others corner & we respect each others decisions. Now we may not always agree or like those decisions, but we won’t badger you about it.
So what are your ground rules for a good friendship?
In honor of my friends that saw Avengers with me this weekend, Non-Conformist Friendship Party Assemble!
