The prompt for today on 2peas is to blog about your thoughts on friendship. This struck a chord for me.
What I want most from a friendship would best be described as equality and balance, tempered with loyalty. Meaning that you give as good as you get--that you give as much as you take from me. And you speak with me honestly and openly as I will speak with you--without judgement, and that you keep my secrets as well as I keep yours. This hasn't always happened for me; I value it so much more when I find it.
That's really all I have off the top of my head. Seems simple enough---it's basically the "golden rule." 'Nuff said.
Not quite the other side, but close enough.
