“Friendship is a divine relationship between human beings. Strong friendships developed ultimately, are required to be maintained with great care. We humans can’t live without a friend, and the real friendship could be a great support to one’s life.”- S.S.S. Nagarkoti.
Friendship is simply a divine relationship based on sincere feelings and understanding. It’s not ordinary, social or an official affair between people but it’s a spiritual connection of feelings and care based on mutual trust, affection and support. Sometimes relationships could be established for earthly benefits but that is not really considered a true friendship. A real friendship is purely a bond based on sincere feelings of share and care between friends.
Though it requires to be reciprocal between two people or among several people, and only then they can love, understand, and trust one another equally and unconditionally . Successful friendships are only established provided the interests, feelings, choices, tastes, and sentiments between the friends are same or common. A friendly relationship between people with strictly different outlook and view is almost impossible.
A friendship turns stronger with care and staying connected. In the same way disrespect towards it fades the colours of trust, and destroys it forever. Friends must be sincere and loyal towards one another. One should not show vanity and power over his/her friends. They must bare a sense of equality in mind. Friendship with disparity doesn’t last very long. In order to maintain the bond, it must be valued and handled with sensitivity because only honesty and loyalty determines whether it’s for real or just fair weathered.
All people seeming friendly are not friends. Many pretend to be so but they terminate their support as soon as their interests are fulfilled. We may have thousands of fair-weathered friends in prosperity but real friends are those who stand by us in our troubled times. It’s always very painful when someone you always trusted and depended on emotionally turns a traitor and leaves you for shallow reasons, so in choice of friends we must be cautious. A good friend supports us always and lead us in the right way, encourages us for positive, and forbids us from committing wrong deeds. They are an invaluable treasure and hold on to those for ever.
Benefits and necessity of a strong friendship are innumerable. Human beings are social by nature and need company to be with, and friends can make one of the best companions because they support and care; not judging us for the choices we make in life but always stand next to us as a protective shield, and like a blessing share our highs and lows; lending a loving heart with a helping hand by giving us an opportunity to grow, rise, and share our thoughts freely. As friendship doesn’t aim any worldly things, serious dispute between friends are rare or mostly trifle. In this uncertain world, a beautiful friendship is certainly a blessing with countless gifts, and undoubtedly a heavenly gift to cherish a lifetime. Life is colourless and slow without a friend. Though real friends are not easy to find, a real connection with a good person is a precious gift that could be a great support lasting a lifetime.
It is a feeling of love, compassion, understanding, mutual respect, and affection of one person for another. This feeling of love must be reciprocated, otherwise a true bond of friendship cannot be possibly made, and cannot exist where tastes, feelings, and sentiments are not similar.
It is said that a friend in need is a friend indeed.There may be many friends at the time of prosperity. But most of them desert at the time of adversity. We can examine the sincerity of a friend during our time of hardship and trouble. Only a sincere and faithful friend remains with us at the time of our trouble. All others leave us.
“Friendship is not about who you have known the longest . It’s about who walked into your life, said I am here for you and proved it.”
Good friends exercise good influence. They always help their friends, in distress and inspire them to walk on the right path. Choose your friends carefully and only those who guide you, inspire you and at the end of the day; make you a better person and a wonderful being. Stay away from evil friends as they have an immense impact to ruin the confidence, love and our emotions completely.
Be the friend you want to have in your life.
