We want to have friendships because we’re built for them and we’re created to be in relationships with one another. If you want a friendship with another person then as requirements you have to be Available and Vulnerable. To gain a friendship, trust has to be earned over time for both individuals. In a relationship, a person can either be Transparant or Vulnerable. Transparent means you put a shield up for people to look through but you don’t allow them to do anything. Vulnerable means you allow others to come in so then they can do something although being vulnerable is risky because you’re allowing the other person to influence you.
