On Friendship...

Friendship by Edris Khamissa – Part 1 of 2

The aspect of friendship, as brother Edris Khamissa explained, is fundamental to our lives. Nothing can be more painful than to have a lonely existence. Nothing can be more painful than not knowing who to talk to about our situation or dilemmas.

Brother Edris also advised that parents should expose their kids to other kids to hone their social skills. This will give them a better sense of teamwork, compromise and sacrifice. Important skills would also be learnt as they grow up that would assist in developing long-lasting friendships.

Friendship is something you cherish and relish. Friendship is something you invest in.

During the programme, brother Edris encouraged introspection by posing important questions: ‘Are you a person who is a worthy friend?’ and ‘Do you have the attributes for someone to say, ‘I like to befriend him/her because I’ll be enriched by him/her.’

This is part 1 of 2…
