The definition of friendhip is :a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically one exclusive of sexual or family relations. That would be the definition as per the dictionary, for me it holds a different definition.
Through the years i have had many friends, some are still with me and some are no longer part of my life. those are the ones that were just passing through, the ones that were there just for the good times and when the going gets tough, they miraculously disappear.
There are the long time friends that you have known forever and even though you may not see them or hear from them in a while, you know deep down that they are one phone call away.You pick up the phone and you continue the conversation you left off the last time you spoke or saw each other. They listen to you, really listen, no judgement, no criticism.
Another type of friend is the one that ” i need something from you” and then when they get what they want , they play the disappearing act. This happens quite often as i have a tendency to help people, without realising that it is just an act or they befriend you for some personal gain.
The interesting friendships are when you bond with someone who you never thought that you would become friends with.They have all the characteristic of ” i don’t make friends ” and when you least expect it they enter you life and become long lasting friends.
There is another kind of person, which you may or may not call “friend” Someone you meet under strage circumstances. Like in a waiting room and you start chatting and you end up by exchanging phone numbers. A family member that you have met a few times in your life and become friends and you enjoy talking to them.
There are so many definitions of FRIENDS.
