Some people need many friends.
When really we only need one.
To have a good friend, you have to be a good friend.
With many friends you don't have the time to be a
good friend.

We all have many good acquaintances. Which is good.
But only one that is a true friend.
Someone we would be there in a minute to help,someone that
they know they can depend on you and rely on.

I guess what this is saying don't spread yourself to thin
Spend your time and energy on a true friend.
And don't mistake a real friend for an acquaintance.
