In the hierarchy of relationships, friendship is at the bottom. Human beings are the best creation of God. They have senses, they have moral feeling. For existence and for leading moral life they need advice and consultation. But they face sure issues that cannot be mentioned with the relatives – in no matter relation they may stand and then here will the need of an admirer, ofcourse a real friend. There’s despite that cannot be mentioned with a friend.
1. Why friendship is so important and why there is a need of a friend?
Friends are important because they bring companionship, support and enrichment to life. They are also needed for survival. Friend a 6 letter word but certainly the most important one in anyone’s life because that is something which we choose our self to enter into and unlike other voluntary bonds, like marriages and romantic relationships, they lack a formal structure.
In the world where everyone is wearing a mask it is very important that at least we should have someone with whom we can choose to let the mask fall off. With our friends we can share our insecurities, sorrows, happiness, anger, feelings and are assured that they are not going to harm us.
2. The Different Types of Friends…..
Like every other thing in this world the term friend is also categorized into “Best Friend”, “Close Friend”, ”Friend with benefit” and many more, but for me there is no category for friends.
They’re the people who root for you, no matter what. You tell them your deepest, darkest secrets, and instead of heading for the door, they stick with you through the thick and thins and the bond will only grow stronger with time.
3. Friendship must never be buried under the weight of misunderstanding
You get in the biggest fight with the people you care about the most because you are willing to keep that friendship alive. There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that kills friendships and relationships.
In friendship there occurs situations when two people don’t agree on same point they fight, they argue but does that mean the end of the friendship? Does that one moment of fight erases all the multiple moments that you have spend together. Why they don’t take the effort to clear the misunderstandings. Always try to communicate with your friend and never let the misunderstanding of the moment let ruin your friendship of years.
4. Nostalgia is indeed a Seductive Liar – It will tempt you back but will never be yours again
With time friendships are the relationships most likely to take a hit. Whether individuals hold onto their previous friends or grow apart appears to return all the way down to dedication and communication.
It is hurtful when you saw people, who meant world to you and later moved on to part ways, you think what could’ve gone so terribly wrong between them that they can’t even stand each other now? Can a friendship that starts with a ‘No Sorry, No Thank You’ rule and reaches the ‘Friends Forever’ stage end on such a bitter note?
Friends are indeed a very special part of our life. Never ever take them for granted. Fight with them, argue with them, because they are worth to fight for. It’s OK to be angry but it’s never OK to be cruel. Before you say something think how would you feel if someone said it you. Because there is a difference in making someone mad, and hurting someone.
This article is an ode to all my friends who are a part of my journey. A small message for you guys that you all are very special and hold a very special place in my life just stay the way you are because that’s the core of our friendship.
