Friends are good. And it takes work to maintain a friendship. Its all about scratching your friends back before they scratch yours. If you do this you will have lots of friends. Scratch their back without even expecting your back to be scratched in return. This is the ultimate way to impress, please and satisfy friends. But don’t be a push over. Set boundaries and figure out what you are willing to give and what you are not. Time is easy to give, it doesn’t cost anything. So if a friend needs help and all it takes from you is a bit of time, more often than not, you should agree. But also realize that once you give away that time, it is gone forever. And we all have a limited amount of time to hang around this crazy place we call earth. So, be sparing with your time, but also generous when a friend is in need. I’m sure they would do the same for you.
