“A friend in need is a friend indeed” -Is a really well-known popular saying; which implies that some people play the friendship card when they need something from YOU!! In the mean while, this can be indeed be true; however, the reverse is also very significant. Whenever you are the one in need, then you find out who your real friends are, agree??
In my personal look into friendship/friends you have friends that are ‘real’ and others that are ‘fair-weather’. I explain to you what I mean by this if you are some what confused. So be ready and prepare yourself…
‘Real’ friends are there for you no matter what!! They are there to help, support and respond to your concerns and what else. These type of friends always listen to you without asking anything in return, right? They are the ones to ask you how they can help you etc..
‘Fair-weather’ friends are those who are most likely to appear when they are in need or at best, when you are not in need.
The way I see it is that real friends don’t care about your need – they will help you where they can and know that it’s OKAY if they can, only offer a little bit of sympathy.
The other type of friends I mention know the fact they will somehow be melted away like ice. Be careful that you don’t get used and then left behind. Friendship support works two-way street not just one-way so bare that in mind.
Famous saying “friendship is a two-way street” -So keep in mind of the fact that false friendships, like ivy decays and ruins the walls it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports.
Finally I leave with you to keep in mind; “Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said “I’m here for you” and proved it” -Unknown
