“True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island.To find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.”
At first I thought I would write a short description of each them but then again I am still young and I choose life!
Moving on swiftly.
It has indeed been a journey. It is almost hard to believe that we just met last year. We definitely did not start off as we are right now. We had different first impressions of each other, probably talked about each other but look at us now. The decision to give each other a second chance to make an impression must be what has brought us this far.
In my interactions with my friends there are quite some lessons I have picked up when it come to friendship. For starters, it is okay not to spend every single hour in a day together. I mean at the end of it all we each have our own individual lives to live, we have other friends.We also have our own interests which we need to look out for at our free time.
I have learnt that just because you are friends does not mean you must know all about what is going on in each others’ life. This is something very important. You may not have been told something, not because you are less of a friend but just because in that particular issue you may not have been the best to assist. For example, a financial problem where even if you were told, you would have probably advised the friend to go to the one she opted to go to first because you don’t have a dime to your name.
I have learnt that differences should not make us indifferent. We have different outlooks on many thing in life, different beliefs, different goals and priorities but at the end of it all our common ground is friendship ad if it is solid, it sure does withstand all the differences.
I have learnt that in true friendship you love them even on their bad days. Yaas! There are days when things between some of you may be a bit off, okay maybe not a bit but you get it. This comes out of understanding and forbearance. If it is true friendship, an argument today will not make them an enemy tomorrow because you will work things out.
Most of all I have learnt that indeed you should choose your friends wisely. Yes, you remember your parents and teachers telling you that? Choose them wisely! These are the people who you are sharing information with, investing your time in. If you don’t choose them wisely, I believe you can figure out how detrimental it can be for you.
Cheers to more years of friendship my people.!
