    I’ll try to look for that movie to see and be able to understand more about friendship, you are right, true friends are very rare to find. So we definitely treasure them no matter what.

    Online friendships are what I know. I don’t get along with many other moms in real life, I don’t have the same lifestyle, I can’t just stop and drop what I’m doing to go for coffee or hang at a park all day so I cherish my great friends online!

    I have managed to forge some strong connections through social media. It’s a great way to easily find people with similar interests.

    I love what Ralph Waldo Emerson have said about friendship, it is true but sometimes it just the opposite that happens/.

    Just the other day, I met an IG friend in person. Social media can be a great medium to meet inspiring people and potential real life friends if only you know how to use it wisely.

    Online friendships can be meaningful. Through blogging I have made some amazing friends and it’s been super positive thus far.

    I have learned over the years that friendships come and go. God puts people there for certain seasons of our lives. Some people are there for a short time while others are there for the long haul.

    I like Ralph’s quote.

    Friendship has been wasted on so many backstabbing users that it’s hard for me to trust anyone with my friendship.

    This is a good topic to revisit, as things have changed so much in the social media world in the past 6 years. I’ve made tons of friends! Fame? Not so much.

    I’m just starting my blog journey and I’ve only had brief moments of social media fame. It’s so important to keep things in perspective!

    Is that temple in Tibet as well as the Friendship Highway? That would go hand and hand. I love the way the temple looks.

    Ya know, sometimes friendship can be more rewarding and intimate than other relationships
