I’ve never had a great number of friends, mainly because I’m very introverted. Throughout my lifetime I’ve been close to only a few people at a time. It’s about all I could ever effectively manage.
It remains true today.
Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously once said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. I’ve thought about this over the years and each time I’ve been hard pressed to single out five people, apart from coworkers, that I hang out with the most.
For me, it would be my girlfriend Karen and my youngest son Jay. That’s it. 🙄
