The 36 Questions That Lead to Love: Set II #16 Friendship
What do you value most in a friendship?
I value genuineness most in a friendship, both from my side and from my friends'. I truly appreciate someone who can make me comfortable enough to be myself, and vice versa. I admire people who can be themselves, without sacrificing social norm, and smart enough to know the balance and boundaries that surround social interactions.
Most people tend to fall into people pleasing category, or normative category, or just plain don't care category. I always want to be savvy enough to navigate between pleasant, but not violating any norms, and be honest with myself. I think it's a very difficult dance and you have to be very intelligent to do it.
I'm not quite there yet, but I'm better compare to my former self few years, few decades ago. Way better.
