There are some people who we refer to as our acquaintances and there are others who we will say are not really our friends or enemies (I guess they fall in between). The big question today is when does your acquaintance become your friend?...and I mean true friend. There are no easy answers as friendships are complex but trust is an important ingredient. If you can be yourself with your friend and share with them important things about yourself that no others know then you are on the way to friendship. Friendship isn't just about the good times, it's also about holding each other up and helping each other be the best person they can be without expecting anything in return but yet receiving it.
