3 Types of friends you have

As I fight through the mess I’ve created myself, there have been occasions where I had to ask for real help from my friends. Whilst I hold no grudge against them for their responses, I’ve come to realise that they can easily be segmented into three types, these being:

  1. Friends who can help but won’t for reasons only known to them. These are the guys who sit on the sideline and watch.
  2. Friends who are happy to provide encouraging words. Whilst positive energy is vital, sometimes this just isn’t enough.
  3. Friends who would go the extra mile.

This also raises a question about how do you decide someone you know well is a friend or not. The word “well” here is also highly subjective. Would be interesting to revisit this post in couple of months and review whether I still feel the same with above classifications.
