True Friend: A Man is Known by the Company He Keeps
The definition of a real friend has changed in this technological world. Today we try to make many friends, in friendship we don’t stuck-up with a single person to whom we can call as our real friend or best buddy. It is true: we do enjoy the ability to be informed and try to know what is happening in the lives of many of our acquaintances whom we are aware of personally. The World is too big to have many friends in life, at every phase we get connected with the new one.
Friends are important in everybody’s life, we all need that one friend with whom we can share out secrets. Especially girl’s friend-circle have lot many things to discussion among them. Usually, girls have gossips, daily life updates, sharing all necessary as well as unnecessary stories along with each other. And now, if I compare this for boy’s they are very different to have such type of friend-circle among them.
Boy’s have no jealous factor; always they are well occupied with their friendship zone and comfortable too. I would like to highlight the best quality of boy’s friendship is that they can last for the longer period being a true friend with each other.
Anyways, to distinguish boy’s or girl’s friendship doesn’t make any sense. A true friend is a one who always influence those with whom he/she associate to “rise a little higher and be a little better.” Choose friends who share your values so you can strengthen and encourage each other in living high standards.
There are many I have in my friend-circle, but the fact is only few will remain by my side when I’m in trouble. Friends are the family we get to choose. But don’t expect too much in friendship, don’t depend on anybody completely because you never know if the person fits into your definition of a true friend.
However, the truth is that creating and maintaining true friends can get quite difficult. Things often seem lovely and simple at first, but then friendships get tough and not seldom you find yourself doubting on the existence of this true friendship, seems more like a myth or a legend. There can be a fight in the middle or nothing at all really. You say goodbye to your friend one day during the summer after high school, and months go by as college starts, and you realize you haven’t communicated one bit. Whose fault is it truly?
I am firm believer that one should hold on to relationships and work on keeping them healthy, it doesn’t take much really! All you need is to send a message once in a while, show some interest in their new life and try to schedule days for you to meet and share the latest. However the truth is you cannot force relationships, if you notice that someone is simply not responding to any of your efforts, there really isn’t much you can do.
Don’t we all have friends who we were very close to at one point, but with whom we are no longer in touch with now? I guess such people don’t pass the test of real friendship, or maybe they just stop being so. They drifted away from our life when their role as a guide was over. Both ways just let them go and have faith that new and better people await you in life.
It is rather hard to give one cut definition on what a true friend is, people may change like season changes. It’s on human behavior how he tries to handle up with the relationship he holds for a long period or lifetime and how he treats the other person.
Friendship is more like “give and take relation“. But is it good to have this type of conditions in real friendship? The man is a social animal by nature therefore always have a better judgment while choosing a friend. If you have one who can stay by your side without any conditions just grab him up, never let him go!! If not just wait for the right person to come in your life as a True Friend, therefore, it’s worth saying – A Man is Known by the Company He Keeps…!
