Over the years you may have realized the importance of having a few genuine friends vis-à-vis having a long list of contacts — not social media connections but real people. This realization is definitely one of the best things to happen.

Come to think of it. Your contact list includes many who won’t accept you the way you are, keep finding faults in you, try to make fun of you at every available opportunity, derive sadistic pleasure from your failures, and never change their attitude towards you.

You can never trust these people enough to share your feelings. So how do you avoid this?

The key is to first keep the number of friends to a minimum, and then make an effort to build lasting equations with them. The lesser the friends the stronger will be the friendship.
