Think about a few recent conversations…
Who, not what, did you talk about?
Or a fair mix of each.
More precisely, how much interest did they show in you and your life.
Were they interested in your thoughts, your interests, your feelings, your concerns, your aspirations?
A further test of this is how they respond when things aren’t going to well for you. This is when some turn out to be fair-weather friends. Though many show their true colours and set aside their own agenda to make space for you.
