Two days ago my son and i had a deep conversation about friends. He struggles to make new friends at school. And school isn’t structured to facilitate social interaction. This is typical when you are a brand new freshman and not involved in extracurricular activities.
Told him if you die with five really good friends you are a rich man.
On yesterday’s run i decided near the end that when i got home i was going to reduce my friends on Facebook. Went from 414 to 257. The goal is 200. For now.
The criteria? Would i go to their funeral and/or share with the family something special about our relationship? A yes for nearly everyone.
Criteria two? Would the friend reciprocate? Right, wrong or indifferent, that’s what i used.
