I often wonder how we would react if we were stuck in a room with the people we hang out with on Facebook or Twitter. Would we want to stay and chat or would we race out to make fresh online friends whose voices we’ve never heard, whose hands we’ve never seen.
Is the Internet responsible for this shift, or are we so involved in our own lives, we can’t be bothered to share real things with real people.
And what about the things we do share with real people? Are they too superficial, or have we managed to maintain genuine bonds with the people whose lives we’re meant to enrich? In this article I explore a few different types of friendships based on the ‘real’ people we know. In which division do you fall? Are you the Judas type, in it for what you can get? The Peter type, the life of the group when the going is good? Are you somewhere in between, or do you dare to be the Jesus type, strong and dependable?
You'll enjoy these other relationship with friends and family articles.
