I got this e-mail this morning in response to my Friends article.
I have a brother in law who has said for years that we only have
time in life for about a dozen deep relationships. If we try to
have more than that we will likely fall short and feel frustrated.
He also says we should live deep, not wide. I always thought
we should try to touch as many different people as we can
but his thought is concentrate on a few, live deep, and have
something to offer them.
Interesting thought. What do you think? Do you agree? Or do you like to spread your attentions between many friends? Is one way better than the other?
