Dealing with imperfect friends
From my latest column, appearing in BoomerConnections.com. Our society has given us a way to make our lives much easier by changing the way we deal with friends.
I used to work hard at getting along with my friends. Some of these friends are conservative. Some are liberal. Some are Catholic. Some are Muslim. Some are Jewish. Some are atheist. Some are earth worshipers…
You get the point. They are all different, and they all have different opinions. This caused no end to trouble. … Worst of all, I had to accept these friends for who they were, with all their imperfections.
Thankfully I recently learned about a great way to solve this issue: I only allow myself to have perfect friends.
