In the biblical creation story the Creator, having formed the first person, immediately declared our social character: “It is not good that man should be alone.” Most of us, most of the time, would rather be with anyone than be alone. And when we compare being with anyone to being with a real friend, there is no comparison. The reasons are endless and many of times crazy and stupid. The fun we have with our friends, though chatter, laughter, fights and tiffs once gone is always missed by us and later we all laugh on them thinking how fool we were for doing somethings regardless good or bad.
“Friendship is like butterfly. It starts out in a cocoon, slowly growing day by day, then blossoming into something beautiful.”
But now in today’s world, does this kind of friendship exists? My experience says NO. What about yours?
Today, hardly we will find such kind of friends who will stay for us no matter how hard the life has been. Now a days, people come in our life with their own selfish motive and when that motive is accomplished they leave us without any reason. Or even if they don’t come with any motive still they leave us without any tiff or any other reason, they just leave us and we get back to our own selves again all alone and lonely and hurt.
Some friends stays with us till sometime and when they find a new one they leave us. In some cases, our own friends become friends with others through us and still the leave us behind and ignore us. Why do our friends start ignoring and avoiding us when they meet someone new in their life? Is this kind of behavior proper? I do agree when we meet someone new in our life we wish to know that person more and we tend to spend time with them, but does it means we should ignore our old friends? Friends who stood by us in our good and bad times, friends who tried hard for us so that we try to get back to our normal selves when we were facing troubled times in our life.
We should always remember who was with us in our good and bad times no matter how they are, or else we will never know when we shall lose our best diamonds of life while we were busy counting stones.
Lastly, i would like to share a proverb with you all:-
” A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.” – Arabian Proverb
