A friend is someone who you can rely on other than family. Mostly, during the happiest times of your life, and some at your dull and weakest moments.
There are friends, good friends, great friends, and true friends. All of them do exists, as the saying goes, “No man is an island”, as well as “Man does not live by bread alone”. Therefore, a person always has someone whom they call “friend”.
However, the word “friend” differs according to the person’s perspective. Just like any other word, it can have different adjectives. Good friends are the ones who are good if you’ve shown them goodness, in other words they will do you the same favor. Great friends are the ones who know how to share you’re greatness into certain things for they have experienced the same.
True friends are the ones who will remain true to you, be honest with you of all the truth you deserve even if it will hurt you at the beginning. They are the ones who you can trust with your secrets without having seconds thoughts of being publicized or vulgarized. The ones who you can cry on and laugh with when you feel like doing so.
Lucky are the people who have these kind of friends. They can never feel alone in this world full of strangers.
Sadly, if there are true friends, the exact opposite also exists, they are called “fake friends”. They are the ones who wear different masks. They wear a mask with a smile, even though deep inside, they frown. They say good things in front of you, but if they talk to someone else, bad things came out of their mouth, and they will tell stories about you which are not even their own business.
It’s hard to identify “fake friends”, for they have a mastery of disguising using different masks. You must be aware when you met one. The lesson you should learn is to choose wisely who you can trust, sometimes “fake friends” are masked as “true friends”.
I am lucky to have these kind of friends, good, great and true.
Just a tip, in having friends, number is not a concern. It’s alright to say “I have few friends, but I know they are true”.
I’m ending this post through a question, which kind of friends do you have? Feel free to comment your answer below.
