True freindship is one of those things about accepting people for their faults.What a load of crap!!! Does this mean I should be "friends" with dopers, murderers, thieves? Hell, maybe I am, but I just don't know it.
True friendship means being a friend to yourself, FIRST ... choose people who elevate/ support you, your dreams and goals. Normally, one would select people who share a similar perspective on values, interests, lifestyle, etc. If friends make a mistake, one should support them in sorting things out ... but, someone who is chronically involved in a lifestyle that is illegal, predatory or so self-involved that they would use others with no regard for their feelings is not someone that I would consider "friend" material!
