I think that we can have friends that are different than us, with opposite personalities, let’s say.
One friend might be more outgoing than you are, or a bit louder, and one may be more quiet and shy.
I’ve had friends like this.
Sometimes our values and politics have been different, but we’re not so far off that we really clash. We can still respect each other, and I think that is what it has to come down to–mutual respect and trust for each other.
I think that if you can’t respect each other, that will cause difficulty for the relationship.
