It’s an often-repeated truism, “Familiarity breeds contempt” but I think this is not true in most cases. Sometimes the more familiar you become with another person, the more you understand them better and like them better.
It’s been years since I have known you
At first we were mere acquaintances
Gradually I got to know you better
We became reluctant friends as we had issues
Now more than twenty years on, I know you so well
And I found out that I consider you my friend
Even though there are things that we disagree on
There are many traits of your personality that I find endearing

“Just because something is familiar, doesn’t mean it’s safe. And just because something feels safe, doesn’t mean it’s good for you.”― Brittany Burgunder
