Now I know you are probably thinking that there aren’t sacrifices in friendship but rather ones to keep friendship, but any sacrifice to keep a friendship is a sacrifice in friendship. You could sacrifice a friend in order to keep a better friend or you could sacrifice a boyfriend or girlfriend in order to keep your friends. Sometimes friendships can be hard but any true friend who is always there for you is better than any boyfriend, girlfriend, or “friend” (fake friend).
“It’s not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What’s hard, she said, is figuring out what you’re willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about.” ― Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way
This quote can be connected to friendship because all it is saying is you have to figure out how important friendship is in your life and what you are willing to give up in order to keep that friendship or if somebody comes between you and your best friend are you willing to give that somebody up.
There will be boyfriends and girlfriends that you will love but not all of those relationship will work out and some of them may even come down to choosing between your friends and your “love”. One very important thing though is that you should never let love come between a friendship. And unless you want to lose your friends over love you should always choose your friendships before boys.
If you connect this quote to friendship it is basically saying that you can have the best friendships ever only if you are willing to sacrifice for that friendship.
