Get your mind out of the gutter, this is not what you think it is. A wise friend once said to me that everybody has a benefit in your life. This is already the perfect example, the fact that they are addressed as ‘wise’ goes to show that it’s clearly beneficial for me.
A while ago I would have completely disagreed but today I can’t possibly agree more. It’s a filtering process that evolves as you grow older. Don’t you think it’s hard enough to invest in friendships and relationships that mean something let alone those that contribute nothing.
If you disagree with the above then my only advice for you is to sit down and reassess your thought process. Just yesterday I offered two distinct benefits:
- I left a lipstick mark on my friend’s cheek as a sign of affection
- I ate one of her slices of pizza which realistically is a step closer to bettering her physique
She smiled back and said thank you, I love you, it was the perfect transaction!
