Friendship and modularity
How friendships can be described in discrete steps.
While wondering about why there are flavors in friendships, I got to an understanding that friendship is made of few components. Instead of treating these in a state of flux, we can treat them modular. This could make our life a lot easier. Because, the we can't be everything for everyone (or some people).
This concept builds on the understanding that we believe in a good social circle with various people sharing mutual interests in certain areas.
An understanding of these elements helps us differentiate and modularize. This helps in prioritizing the events where we need to be, stay less drained and if possible a bit happy.
