In life every one will meet many people who say that they are your friends, but you will make only a few true friends. What is a friend? In the dictionary, a friend is defined as one that is not hostile, or one attached to another by affection or esteem, a favoured companion. In my opinion, a friend is much more than that.
A friend is someone that will stand by you, even during the toughest times. Friendship is about believing in your friends and helping them to achieve all they can or want to do in life.
We are there for each other with hugs, advice, kind words, fights, and anger, whatever comes along. When the day ends, we are still friends who have each other no matter what happens.
We all have a desire to have friends. It is what makes us reach out of our shells and take the chance of being hurt. It is not easy figuring out who is a friend and who is not.
I believe Divya, to be a true friend. We met in school and have known each other for five years. Divya and I have been through many good and hard times together.
In addition, we have experienced so many together, such as travelling to Goa and the South India where we shared many enjoyable moments. Our friendship has done nothing but has grown over the years and continues to do so. We are currently indulgencing in another adventure by living together in Pune.
I consider Divya to be a true friend. A true friend is there for you when you need them. To have a. true friend is a remarkable thing. To find someone who shares similar interests, who cares about whom you are and what you are doing… true friend is there for you when you need them.
He or she is someone who you are not embarrassed to cry in front of, to whom you can tell the deepest, darkest secrets, knowing they will be safe. An old rule of thumb is that a true friend is someone you can call after months or even years and speak as if not a day had passed.
Divya and I have experienced this, we were parted from each other for about a year and half while she was away at her exams and I had moved back to my home in Delhi to spend some time with my mom. Once we came in contact again with each other to attend university it was as though we never skipped a beat.
True friendships come along rarely, and so I am thankful to have met her that we must move past anything that threatens our friendship and see the big picture. Without our friendships, we are indeed lost.
Whatever happens, we should always keep our true friends close to our heart. Tell your friends how much they mean to you. Do not let them slip away. If they do, go out and get them back. The bonds we make during these days will serve to keep us going in the months and years ahead.
