It is a natural human urge to seek company, to talk to people, share personal experiences - the joys and sorrows of everday life, the jokes, and in short, whatever interests us. Friendship, however, is not free from its context in social life, and it helps to know why we have the friends that we do.

Natural affinity sometimes brings two individuals together, and keeps others at bay. A perceived sense of social and intellectual class also works underneath to bring about such friendships. Otherwise, common and shared interests, opinions, experiences, and placement in life are the natural glues that bind distinct individuals.

Circles of friendship are therefore much more than merely friendship. Your friends may or may not want you to study or work hard, engage in certain activities, hold certain opinions or complain about this or that. It is the price that you pay for coming 'in' to become a 'part' of their circle.

They are called groups, and they are everywhere. If you wish to stay away from these circles, do so at your own cost. If you are lucky to find a good friend, thank your luck every day. If you do not want to mix with others, sooner or later you will be sought out for an explanation. Keep your well reasoned excuses ready, for it is very unlikely that the world will leave you alone.
