What is a companion? Is it an associate, somebody you know? Is it a partner, somebody who covers your back? Is it a partner, somebody you work with? Is it a close, somebody with whom you can examine nearly anything?
It’s everything of those, I assume, and maybe more. Be that as it may, today the issue isn’t what companionship is, the issue is the thing that it isn’t, as regular as it used to be.
As per a recent report announced in the American Sociological Review, 25% of Americans have no nearby associates. Here’s the lead passage of the article: “Americans’ hover of close associates has contracted significantly in the previous two decades and the quantity of individuals who state they have nobody with whom to talk about significant issues has dramatically increased, as per another investigation by sociologists at Duke University and the University of Arizona.”
Amazing! One out of four Americans have nobody to converse with. That can’t be useful for a general public that might be confronting some troublesome days ahead. So I considered it for some time and thought of six down to earth rules for being an old buddy:
Fellowship Rule # 1: The best kinships have importance and reason. C.S. Lewis stated, “Companionship must be tied in with something, regardless of whether it were just an eagerness for dominos or white mice. The individuals who have nothing can share nothing; the individuals who are going no place can have no kindred voyagers.”
Companionship Rule #2: Don’t pose such a large number of inquiries. I have a companion with whom I was a colleague for a few years. We keep on getting together frequently just to talk about the extraordinary issues of the world. We are persuaded that if individuals would simply hear us out – the world would be a superior spot to live! In any case, we don’t ask each other such a large number of individual inquiries. That might be a person thing, yet the standard is fitting for all in light of the fact that there are a few things about your companion that you don’t have to know and you realize the inverse is valid, don’t you!
Fellowship Rule #3: Don’t offer a lot of guidance. At the point when I read this statement I intuitively realized it was valid and a significant kinship rule: “Companionship won’t stand the strain of particularly solid counsel for long.” – Robert Lynd
Companionship Rule #4: Share in distress and celebrate in progress. At the point when your companion harms, cry with him. At the point when your companion makes it big, celebrate with him despite the fact that you might be desirous of his favorable luck.
