No, friendship is not about “supporting your friends even when you know they’re wrong.” That’s not friendship. That’s being an ENABLER. That’s being an ACCOMPLICE. Friendship is loving someone enough to tell them to stop being an idiot before they ruin their lives (enchanting minds).
Bad Character has been given a pass for far too long in the social community and it bears its fruits as we witness the blatant disrespect, poor communication, arrogance, obscenities, immaturity, etc. They say “spare the rod – spoil the child” and no one likes spoiled children who become rotten adults. Character is cultivated over time. Our communities lack institutions that build good character. In fact, when it comes to the social community, we have more platforms that condone and foster bad character by giving it more attention and shine than we do for building good character. We gotta do better if we ever expect to have a fighting chance.
