“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT.
I believe in the buddy system. I copied this verse from Bible.com. I think it explains the buddy system better than I could. As much time as I like spending alone, I know I need friends. Some friends are more faithful than others, and who you choose to link and trust your life with makes all the difference in the world. I know that I need to be a better friend to those who call me “friend.”
Friendships can be complex. Some can be roller coasters. Then again, some are lifesaving. My favorite number sentence is 2>1.
