We all have selected friends. Those we call childhood friends, elementary, high school, & college friends. True friends, best friends, close friends, etc. We label friendships as such, depending on how you perceive and see your friend as one. The closest, and given most importance, is the term BEST FRIEND. You may have many or one, or ONLY ONE in spite your other best friends.
Selected friends. Though we may have many, as per the verse Matthew 22:14 says, "Many are called, but few are chosen." Those many are acquaintances whom you've met once or twice and befriended on your social sites, and the few are your friends on call, no matter what, whatever it is. We may serve different roles for our friends. Even to our best friend, but one thing, you share the same bond, though you have different paths, careers, sets of friends on your different worlds. As long as you never forget how to be one. You remain the same person as you are, just changing perspectives.
