How do you measure a true sisterhood or brotherhood friendship?
Is it measured by the number of events the person shows up to in your life…the birthday parties, graduation celebrations, weddings and etc. Is it measured by the number of times they call you are the amount of things they give you?
You see when I think about the measure of true sisterhood and brotherhood friendships my mind goes deeper than the above mention things. Because even the crowd shows up for the events, calls you and buys you gifts. It’s when (excuse my French) “the shit hits the fan”…when the party has ended and everyone has exited the building….when the reputation has been pulled through the mud….when there’s no fan fare….when your left all alone…the friend’s who are still standing with you…loyal to the end…the friends who are still there for emotional support….it’s those rare kind of friendships that truly reflect the gift of sisterhood and brotherhood.
