Today I noticed that without my friends I am not much. We are human animals whether we like it or not and as such we will flock together as a tribe in one form or another. So you could suggest that friendship is hard wired into our system for obvious “safety in numbers” reasons. Also the reproductive system relies heavily on both genders being a little friendly to make the magic happen.
So do all of those hard wired actions and reactions cover up the real reason for our bonding together? Is it as simple as we have no choice, it’s instinct, or is it something else that we have no way of comprehending?
When I am close to my friends of both genders and all denominations I feel a little something on top of all the rational, deep set, reasonable facets. I feel a warmth, a glow, a knowing of goodness, empathy and understanding. I feel that this person is important to me, not because of what they can do, how they dress, look nor how much advantage I can gain from their association, but I feel that they are a part of my life’s path, they guide and they protect, they are my friends.
