humanly speaking, we only have so much room in our lives for friends. there is a saturation point. there is only so much of ourselves to go around. we are not bottomless pits (unless it involves food…).
it’s important to draw a distinction between mutual friendships and lop-sided friendships.
mutual friendship is where we give and receive equally. it’s where i get just as much from you as you get from me. we may not receive the same things from each other…but we are definitely in each other’s lives for specific and purposeful reasons.
lop-sided friendships are not bad friendships. they are just different. they are those relationships we have where you are giving more to me…or i am giving more to you. these friendships may be for a season. or they may be for a lifetime. sometimes we have control over them. sometimes they are out of our hands.
there will always come a time when you have too many lop-sided friendships than you can handle.
and there will never be a time that you have enough mutual friendships.
