Have you ever experienced times when you want a listening ear, but you cannot find one? When all your friends were busy exactly in the moment you need them? Well ... I have been through this myself till I met someone who helped me understand why this happens to me, and now she is my best friend. First of all she helped me to realize that I have been so selfish in how I was approaching my friendships. I was taking my friends for granted – expecting them to be there all the time, assuming they would be there when I need them. Telling her my past, I realized that instead of checking how others are and whether they are doing fine in their lives, there I was, feeling sad for myself because I did not have anyone I could speak to about my issues. Secondly, I have learned that to be a good, and a REAl friend to someone, you have to accept them at their best and worst. Everyone has their moments, and if your going to judge someone or drop someone because they have a moment when they are at their worst, then you do not deserve them at their best either. For example, my best friend is there for me and I am there for her even if we are not in our best mood and the others avoid us. Finally,I have found that friendship gives us courage. Usually, when I did not have any true friend, I did not come out when there was a trouble. Now, when my best friend is in trouble, I am the first who I try to help her. She also saved me from many bad situations and helped me to get out of trouble, which now gives me courage to do things I was not able before. To conclude, I can say that friendship is a blessing for everyone. We just have to be more careful with others because "if someone doesn't love us the way we want them to, it doesn't mean they don't love us with everything they have".
