Now a day, finding a true friend is hard, I mean really hard. I haven’t a true friend. I can say I know lots of people, but I cannot say they are my friends or any of them are my real true friend.
We live in this fucking twenty-first century, where people are now machines, they do not have time for their loved ones even for themselves.
A friend is some one who understand you, who I don’t have one. As I stated I know many people but I am afraid to call these people my friend.
A friend who understands you, if they don’t they try to. Many things make someone a good friend and the definition of what makes a true friendship differs from person to person.
Here are some qualities that make someone a friend that you’ll want to keep in your life a long time.
There are many forms of friendship some of which may vary from place to place, certain characteristics include affection, kindness, love, virtue, sympathy, empathy, honesty, altruism, loyalty, generosity, forgiveness, mutual understanding, and compassion, enjoyment of each other’s company trust, and to ability to be oversell express one’s feeling to others, and make mistakes without fear of judgement from the friend.
Friendship is an essential aspect of relationship building skills.
I have watched friends television series few years back, sometimes I thought I have few friends just like Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Ross where I will be there Chandler Bing.
Most of the times I showed my sarcastic sense of humour in the conversation with people where I most of the times they become serious and asking about meaning of jokes which I sarcastically joke about something.
But when I compare my real-life incidents with American television sitcom friend where Chandler Bing cracks sarcastic jokes his friends get it quickly and Joey takes time but eventually he also gets it which is least intelligent character comparing others.
But in real life finding true friend and being like Chandler Bing to normal people seems like impossible.
As they want simple jokes and people who know each others for some quiet time refer them as their friends.
I have read somewhere the true friend is someone who has your back, no matter what. They watch out for you and ensure you are not in danger.
They will never purposely lead you into making decisions that aren’t good for you. A true friend will always have your best interest at heart.
One soul in two bodies. Two people who are so close that their actions and thought sync together, often thinking and saying the same things at the same time.
Very few people have blessings of a true friend which I do not have.
Some times I talk to myself what is this loneliness. I don’t know, but I like to talk myself. I have my own version of Tyler Durden whom I called my true friend. Whom I rely that he never leaves me alone in my bad time and stays happy in my happier times.
He is not like so called friends which always remember me when they neigh favours, help, money help. I do not have a physical true friend, but I can proudly say I am very happy with my not physical friend whom I refer as Tyler Durden.
