No man is an island.
That may sound a cliché but it definitely holds true to everyone – to you, to me, to them.
Remember the first man God has made? He was Adam. He lived alone for a while- the length of time we do not know. However, God saw that he was sad and lonely. He was the highest creature that was made. He had everything he wanted. Yet, he was not happy. Why? It is simply because life without other people is not worth living.
Imagine yourself in Adam’s place. You’ve got all the food you want to eat, beautiful places you want to go, and money you want to spend. You have everything you want to have, and you are going to make use of them- alone.
Perhaps, it was not easy for Adam. And God saw what was missing in his life. Another human being was created to live with him and journey life’s highway with him. He became happy. He became contented.
That is also the scenario in our lives. We may have everything we need even what we want. But, there got to be people in our lives whom we can share our lives with.
The fact is that, we were created sociable. Not only does it apply to people before. Until now, it still remains the same. Being sociable is not something we can avoid nor hide. It is in us and all we can do is accept it and make it work for us.
Yes, man can live alone. In fact, a lot of people nowadays are independent. They have a house of their own, earn real cash for themselves, eat alone, and
sleep alone. But despite that, they still have people around them whom they consult to occasionally. They still get to mingle with others at times. They still converse with people once in a while. They may say they are alone, but not most of time.
We all need friends.
Friends are those people we are comfortable with. Those we can chat with and hang-out a lot. They are the ones whom we get to relax with when we are so stress from school and work. They are those who offer help when we desperately need it. The ones we can rely on and trust our secrets to.
However, we need to consider that people are not the same. Our traditions and beliefs may not coincide. Our thoughts different from them, our like and dislike may not be the same – so as friendships.
Basically, friendships are not the same. Because people are unique in every way, our friends also vary. Our kinship with people is of different levels.
Some are true friends, some are not. Some are your friends only when you have money. Some are just your hang-out friends. Others are just visiting friends. But the fact is that, they are still your friends.
They may not be the same, but you are still able to share your life with them in different aspects you can ever think of. Indeed, you can’t make it alone.
Perhaps you want to build friendships with a lot of people but is having difficulty around.
