“How to get real friends”

 

How do we get real friends? What should we have or what is something necessary for a community? In Father Mike’s video “How to get real friends,” he thinks that everyone living in the world is built or created to be in a relationship with others, which I think is actually true; Everyone has one common relationship, which is the ”parent-child” type of relationship. Another relationship that people have is the “Philia” type, which is basically a friend bond, but before all of this, you would need to increase your “Availability” (A desire to connect with another) with the cost or risk of reducing your “Vulnerability” (Being able to open yourself to other people and being honest.) which means the “more available a person is, the less vulnerability a person will have.” Doing the exact reverse of this will result in the person being basically anti-social with other people because obviously, they had very little availability and had lots of vulnerability. This would be pretty bad for this person because without a relationship or community will never be able to get a “real friend.”
