Active friend choices

"Actively choosing to only have people in my life who make an effort. No more friends, etc. who are too lazy or self-motivated to reach out." - Sarah
Friendships are a precious commodity in today's always connected social media world.  Caring about others is more than words and empty rhetoric.  Brotherhood involves sacrifice and an awareness that others' needs are important. Being there is more than you can do for the entire world. If you spread yourself too thin, you risk a total collapse. 
Choose your friends wisely.. and then care for them as the precious resources that they are.  For acquaintances that don't bear fruit and become a drain on the whole.. walk away without regret.  Pruning and Refining are violent processes which provide spectacular results.

Each of us has the right to assess the roads which lie ahead and those over which we have traveled, and if the future looms ominous or unpromising, and the roads back uninviting, then we need to gather our resolve and, carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction.  If the new choice is unpalatable, without embarrassment, we must be ready to change that as well.- Maya Angelou
"True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance."-- Henry David Thoreau
