I once read a great definition of a friend: someone who helps you obtain your goals.when I read up about Aristotle 3 types of friendship. That opened me eyes on what a true friend is. We all have true friends.
IDK if that's a Scientology or LRH one or not but it is great.
It clarified quality.
Sure, I can have a beer and pizza goal or a much deeper, fulfilling goal.
The true friend, good friend is the better quality goal achievement helper.
I've successfully eliminated those who don't fit that definition and life has dramatically improved.
