Friends are like your Windows

“Friends are like windows through which you see out into the world and back into yourself… If you don’t have friends you see much less than you otherwise might.” Merle Shain I have found this to be particularly relevant to my life. I spent a considerable amount of time traveling when I was young, and noticed an astronomical difference in the speed of my own development when I had a stable group of friends to share my ideas with. I feel like your home windows are a very good comparison, because the more clear your windows the clearer you will see the world outside your home. Good windows bring more than just warmth to your soul, they keep your home warm during the winter, and protect you for the scorching heat of summer.
