~ Life without friendship ~
“Friendship is a special kind of love, more than true and more than endless. So if you have your friends, take care of them, and treat them like a treasure. Because dealing a problem with your friends is never easy. For when you truly find a friend, you are lucky to have one for life.” What does the word “FRIENDSHIP” means? Could you tell me? I really don’t know. I’ve faced so many challenges and obstacles just to understand how friendship works, but then I failed. Friends may have different lifestyles live in different places. It’s easy to find a friend, but looking for a best friend is hard. To think, all the people you know are your friends, but a best friend is really hard to find. It’s so easy to be a pal, a buddy, a companion, or an acquaintance, but to be a best friend means so much more. The qualifications of being a friend are very high for an ordinary to reach. For me, a friend is someone special to you. A friend is someone you can turn on to when all the problems of the world are facing you. A friend is someone who is always there with you during good and bad times. A friend is someone who tells you the truth about yourself. A friend is someone who does not compete with you. A friend is someone who tries to cheer you up when things don’t go well. A friend is someone who is an extension of yourself without which you are not complete, and a true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down. As what my dear cousin shared to me, she said that, "Friends are like flowers in the gardens of our lives. They’re he permanent occupants in the rooms of our hearts. They’re our support system without which we’d be lost. They balance our small world and make it turn, turn, turn.” I guess life without any friend will never be easy, each of us need a friend, a friend for us to hang on, to lean on, a friend to give us strength for fighting and a friend to stay stronger with us despite the pain. Friends harmonize with us on the songs we love to sing. They give us hope and help us to stay strong. They are the ones we call on when we’re lonesome and need someone on our side, to give us an encouraging word, a helpful hand, and a place to be ourselves. Friends care when others don’t know how to. They help us when we need it most. They are like our very own guardian angels, they always make us feel that we’re not alone. “A faithful friend is an image of God.” That’s according to French Proverb. A person cannot live without a friend, because for me, friendship is really important. I don’t actually care if other people would hate me nor judge me, all I need is a friend who can appreciate me. I need a friend in every single second of my life. I once lost my best friend and so now, I can’t bear to see myself suffering without any friend by my side. I’ve realized that some people are fortunate enough to meet a person with whom they share a lasting friendship. Even though they each may follow separate paths, the thoughts, the memories, and the times they’ve shared with each other will always remain as a treasure in their minds and their hearts. Wherever you may go or whatever will happen to you, those special memories will never be forgotten. Because as much as you love your friends, your friends will reward you back the effort, the love, and the care you’ve given to them. Nearly, I've been through issues with my friends trying to discover who my real friend is and who is my fake friends. Some people could act in front of you that they love you and they will show all their sweetness but then guess what they backstab you without thinking that these ones in particular could do such things as backstabbing or talking behind your back without knowing what’s going on and why they are trying to battle you. I’ve learned from all the things that I've been through is that never trust person without making sure that this person is like part of your family. His/her heart would be open to your secrets problems everything that you would like to express to this kind of person.
