I have always heard people saying that “Friendship is the relationship that lasts forever”. Believe me at first I felt it ridiculous but at last I was convinced with the philosophy of the friendship. Friendship is a feeling of love and affection of one person for another. True friendship is perhaps the only relation that survives the trials and tribulations of time and remains unconditional. A unique blend of affection, loyalty, love, respect, trust and loads of fun is perhaps what describes the true meaning of friendship. Friendship is a feeling of comfort and emotional safety with a person. The friends are the ones who are always there beside you as a wall for support and protect, understand your feelings and encourage you in the every good deed that you perform. There are many famous quotes on friendship. One such quote, which people often remember is “Friend in need is the friend in deed”. There may be many friends at the time of prosperity. But most of them desert at the time of adversity.
We should guard ourselves against the false friends. Because some people pose to be our friends to meet their own interest. When their interest is met, they leave us. They sometimes betray us for their own interest. They never hesitate to sabotage. Such friends are more dangerous than enemies. Because they catch us by surprise. Friendship cannot survive if one person makes all the effort to sustain it without any mutual recognition from others.
At last, Friendship is noble and divine. A true friend is really a gift of God. So, everyone should know how to choose a friend and how to honour friendship. If we wish that our friends should be true to us, then we must be true to our friends.
