Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm & constant.
I am not sure if I do friends well or if I am terrible at it. I tend to assume the former, but contemplate the latter at times.
How fortunate, though, that we live in a world where friendships can exist.
If you are a friend though, know that I will be very loyal to you because I don’t bring people in quite so casually and when I do, I feel an obligation to the friendship, knowing both our boundaries, and I tend to commit to that pretty seriously.
I am slow to fall into friendship, but when I do I remain as firm and as constant as needed and is reciprocated.
