on friendship and shopping

Define friendship.

Friendship… in Wikipedia is defined as
the cooperative and supportive relationship between people. In this sense, the term connotes a relationship which involves mutual knowledge, esteem, affection, and respect along with a degree of rendering service to friends in times of need or crisis. Friends will welcome each other's company and exhibit loyalty towards each other, often to the point of altruism. Their tastes will usually be similar and may converge, and they will share enjoyable activities. They will also engage in mutually helping behavior, such as the exchange of advice and the sharing of hardship. A friend is someone who may often demonstrate reciprocating and reflective behaviors. Yet for some, the practical execution of friendship is little more than the trust that someone will not harm them.

Friendship… by definition or shall I say serious and right definition is always positive. But in reality, life is both positive and negative. Some friends will use the term to con or scam their own friends. Others will use it as an alternative option for a collateral damage. And a few will use it to gain power.

Friendship… like in a women's large clothing store presents a wide variety of style, color, sizes and price. You go to look for something in your mind and you find something that will totally blow your mind. You tried everything that appeals to your taste and you either end up buying all that you tried or leave the store empty handed. And you browse the collection hoping that you will find the right outfit only to find out that you either cannot afford it or somebody else has already bought it. In other words, friendship is just like shopping... you need a keen eye, sharp intuition and positive judgment to get a great deal.

Friendship… like shopping is complicated but a necessity.
