A friend. An acquaintance. Or simply a person know to you.
All these are fairly common words in our lives, maybe not so common for many people but it’s almost a general idea.
Though the occurance of these words in our lives may be common but the people who we use it for are indeed very special to say the least.
They are the magic in our lives whether you admit it or not. They are the light of our dark times whether you see them like that or not. They have an effect on you that you can feel as and when they’re having it.
You can not shadow this reality that friendship is the second best thing in your life after your kinship. C’mon family always comes first, I think for everyone. But yeah friends have their own sweet part in our life story and no one can fill their places.
I can only imagine a person’s life who has no friends or even people with whom they can interact with other than their own family. How they manage their lives? How they cope with loneliness? All these are such huge questions that pop up in my mind when I think about being a person as such. Honestly I don’t know what I would’ve done with my life, without my friends being the auxiliary support system for me after my family.
I owe so much to so many of them that this life wouldn’t be enough to pay them all back with the equal amount of care and love that they have blessed me with, knowingly and unknowingly. So this one’s kind of like a tribute to all of my friends.
Your problems are their problems too.
Probably the best feature of friends or I’ll like to say true friends, that they never tell you that ‘Hey man, that’s your problem. Deal with it yourself.’
They are more concerned about your concerns. They are hell bent on setting the very thing that’s troubling you off into space and you can think of any such extremes in the world and you’ll see your friends ready to dive into it for you.
Though I think some things you need to sort by yourself. But if you’ve ever told a friend about it, just forget about it. It’s not just your problem anymore, it’s a bothering thing for your friend as well.
You can’t hide anything from them. They can see through every lie of yours.
Thinking about keeping something secret or lying from your friends? Well go on and keep thinking only, cause you cannot do it in reality if you want to. It’s just not possible to do with true friends.
You can call this superhuman ability too but it’s actually quite common. If you’re friends with someone whom you’re quite close to, you can definitely feel what I’m trying to say here. Reading thoughts from the body language, identifying emotions by looking in the eyes and all kinds of stuff that thorough professionals use to solve mysteries.
Your common looking friends can suddenly turn into a full fledged investigators as soon as they smell something suspicious in the air that surrounds you.
So you see no point in lying unless you’re a hardcore liar who can even beat a lie detector machine but even then there are only slim chances of you scoring a lie and keeping a secret from your friends.
They can be far from you, but they’ll make sure they reach out to you.
Distances are merely numbers for friendship and friends. Talking about true friends once again. They’ll never fail to show up in the following three phases of your life;
– your happines
– your grief
– every little or big moment in your life.
Even if they do miss the opportunity, they’ll always make up for it whenever they’ll get the chance.
And his very nature of friends and friendship gives us the confidence in life that;
‘If I’ll be in a difficult time in this world, with all my harnesses taken away from me. Making me vulnerable to a fall. I’ll still go on to walk on the ledge of my life with this assurance with me, that I have a safety net of my friends who are present right there to break my fall and to rescue me in case I lose my balance.’
I’d like to say that I can’t say anything else. Words are not enough to describe friendship and friends. Even though I tried but I think no matter how much you write about it, you never can describe it completely.
You can just feel it. Just see it change your life.
True friends and friendship only though, I’m highlighting once again.
