Friendships should be built off mutual respect and common ground. If you're in a friendship that causes you to bow down all the time just so you can be accepted, that's not a friendship. Friends don't dominate one another. They don't force their opinions. They don't cheat you of the joy of being yourself.
With a friend, you should be able to let your hair down, relax and vent without fear that it'll become a scandal. How is it that those who claim to want a friend are the very ones who show themselves as unfriendly everyday?
To get a friend, be a friend.
