Friendship is a platonic relationship between like individuals.
I like you because you are like me and we have similar needs and beliefs.
Society dictates that we like our friends and love our relatives.
We are like our friends and we love the emotionally positive feelings that we need from our friends.
Our friends stop being friends when they stop meeting our needs emotionally.
Friends become enemies when they deprive us of our emotional power instead of supplying it.
Our enemies threaten our supply of emotional energy. This false and limiting belief is called fear.
