The 80’s classic film Stand By Me provides the cinematic backdrop for an in-depth look at the concept of friendship. Question posed…how does the ideal friend differ over time as we age, mature, and our wants/needs become more prominent? Does who we surround ourselves with reflect how we view ourselves? I share two childhood experiences I credit with cementing my view on the topic of friendship, and offer unbridled commentary on the friend versus associate debate.
“Me watching how the outside world worked made me know that it was possible, made me know that my world could be like that even though that wasn’t the environment I was in.” - John Strong
