People say, a true friendship is like a wine, it keeps getting better as it grows old. Having best friends in life is one of the greatest gift sent from up above. You have to meet hundreds or thousands of acquaintances, until finally find ones who know there’s something wrong even when you have the biggest smile on your face.
The years of learning, pit falls, experiences, are happened in a bondage of friendship. As time goes by, this bondage becomes unbreakable, strengthens by anger, fight, immeasurable amount of care, hugs, and just simply a presence. As we grow up and go through our phases of lives, most commonly friends become our pillars who give us strength and help us to cope.
Friendship teach us lessons that probably no text book can explain. Moments of achievements, failure, first love, break-ups, boyfriends, hang-over, are shared with friends. In our process of growing up, when parents look like can’t understand, they are there when those important moments happened. Just because when we are with them, (although they are as inexperience as us), we feel secure, comfort, understood, and will not judge us. I suppose that is the reason why friends take an important role in us.
At the point of life, where we start to take our decisions into the real word, we become more dynamic and complex than before. Making decisions of education or career seems difficult and risky, yet it is important. Many of us found out that a few decisions turn out to be a big mistake. This is where the meaning of friendship gets highlighted. True friends will help you understand that you are not alone. They will help you see beyond your mistake and take you to see the bigger picture of life. This is why friendship will grow closer in sentiment and thought.
True friends teach us something valuable, from whom we can learn about love and life. They accept us the way we are, tell us when we are going wrong and in front of whom we can make fool of ourselves and can talk anything under the sun. The inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with them is just priceless; and certain that a faithful hand will keep what is worth keeping and then blow the rest away. True friends contribute our growth as an individual, who never gets in the way, unless to motivate us to do better in life, and know when to be silent or interfere.
We probably don’t remember how we happened to meet our best friends, who got along with whom first. However, all we can remember is we are together with them… always.
You listen when I have a problem
And help dry the tears from my face.
You take away my sorrow
And put happiness in its place.
We can’t forget the fun we’ve had
Laughing ’til our faces turn blue.
Talking of things only we find funny
People think we’re insane-If they only knew!
I guess this is my way of saying thanks
For catching me when I fall.
Thanks once again for being such a good friend
And being here with me through it all.
p.s : ta, thanks for giving me one-and-a-half fun day of all my recent cloudy days. I’m so glad to have such a great friend like you in my life 🙂
