8 types of friends you will have.

I got this email from my friend stating the type of friends one would have. I personally have at least one that fits in to each of these types. Thought I might share this.

1. A Loyal Best Friend
This is the kind of friend who lets you be a hot mess and knows all of your deepest and darkest secrets, but still loves you all the same.

2. A Fearless Adventurer.
We all need an adventurous friend who will pull us out of our shells and introduce us to new ideas, cultures, philosophies, and activities.

3. A Brutally Honest Confidant.
Friends are supposed to be honest with each other. If you find someone who is brutally honest with you (in a constructive way), then hold on to this person! People like that are hard to come by these days.

4. A Wise Mentor.
We all need a friend who inspires us to be better people without making us feel inadequate. Plus, being around such a person will challenge us to better ourselves every day.

5. A Friend From a Different Culture.
If everyone had a friend from a different culture, the world would be a much better place. Being in a cross-cultural friendship allows you to explore customs, values, and traditions outside of your own culture.

6. A Polar Opposite.
Instead of constantly surrounding yourself with like-minded people, try to break out of your comfort zone and befriend people who hold opposing views. They will help open your eyes to different world views and you’ll learn to accept people who don’t see the world exactly the way you see it.

7. A Friendly Neighbor.
These days, a lot of people don’t know their own neighbors. It’s a shame, because some neighbors can be the nicest and most helpful people ever.

8. A Work Pal.
Your work pal doesn’t have to be your best friend outside of work. They just need to be someone you click with on some level, and if you two hit it off exceptionally well, you can always start hanging out with them outside of the office.

30 Lessons life taught me!

I’ll be turning 18 this year so to celebrate growing older and also courtesy of some self-reflection. I listed out some lessons that life taught me along the way. Also I would like extend my thanks to Zaid and Muzawwir for their input as well.

1. What ever you are going or went through, you are not alone.
2. If you have a plan, you have nothing worry about.
3. If you are planning out an event. Always make notes. Even the little things.
4. Friendship always has its ups and downs. So, don’t make decisions too quickly.
5. Pain can change people. So, don’t be surprised.
6. Don’t judge people. Because there might be tears hiding behind the clown’s face.
7. The best is yet to come.
8. No one remembers the one who gave up.
9. Love your parents no matter what.
10. Whatever happens just smile and accept it. You can’t control fate but you can control how you react to it.
11. Talk to God! He always listens.
12. Time heals most things.
13. One small conversation with a friend. Can sometimes make you forget all life’s problems.
14. Never abandon friends. Your busy schedule won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
15. Believe in miracles.
16. Always remember you are always loved by somebody.
17. Make sacrifices.
18. It’s not important to win any argument. Agree to disagree.
19. Grab as many opportunities as possible. One will lead to another.
20. Give meaning to everything in life.
21. If you really want something to be done. Give a reason. The stronger the reason, the stronger you strive.
22. Learn from mistakes. Both your’s and other’s.
23. Always be prepared.
24. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good. It’s too short to grumble about it.
25. Inspire your self once in a while. The more regularly you bath, the more regularly you smell good.
26. Say NO once in a while.
27. Remember those who helped you.
28. Give without condition. God will smile on you.
29. Take a day off and treat your self. You are a human after all.
30. Last one. You can make a difference or you can just fit in but remember you just can’t do both. Your choice.

Where is the price tag?

“With money you can buy a house, but not a home
With money you can buy a clock, but not time
With money you can buy a bed, but not sleep
With money you can buy a book, but not knowledge
With money you can buy a doctor, but not good health
With money you can buy a position, but not respect
With money you can buy blood, but not life
With money you can buy sex, but not love.”

 

Why does a price exist? The answer is obvious, to display the value of an item. But, the irony is things that does not have a price tag is more valuable than something that actually has one. I think that a price tag is just a limitation of a thing’s value. Which is why, some things are priceless and has no price tag. Many people tend to believe that if he/she has wealth,  that person could do anything. Well, they are most definitely wrong beyond any parameters. There is just so many things that one needs to be content in their lives. For instance, the amazing days you spent in your childhood, the butterflies in your stomach on your first date, the happiness of meeting your old friends, graduating and witnessing the smile on your parents faces and many more are the little elements in life that create bigger memories. Just think what are you going to remember in your final days, a good cheese hamburger or the memories of our loved ones.

Money won’t satisfy your life, happiness does.

What’s missing ?

Today I woke up in the morning and logged in to my Facebook account. I saw a group people who I knew. There were photos of them in an album. In it, they were full of  joy and happiness. Full of self belief. They were a bunch of very very close friends having fun together. Their joy unintentionally brought a smile to my face and also very different thoughts to my mind. They were like the most happiest people on earth. They love each other, respect each other, care for each other always says “I’ve got your back man!” Suddenly, I looked to my self why haven’t I felt it ? Is it because I have felt it but I have not realized it ? I don’t really know. I have friends. Very good awesome friends. But still although we are as close as the people who I knew I felt something is really missing. Something says we should hang more. We should do stupid things more. WHAT IS MISSING ????  I know we are close friends but i feel still something is missing. Why do  I feel like that? I even came to the extent of thinking are we really close friends.
I had to sit back and think a lot. Sometimes I feel no ones out going. I think my friends are really scared to have fun. Well, as the saying if you want to change for the good you must be the change. Well, lets see how it goes.

If anyone out there knows what I’m talking about. Please feel free to comment. Although probably know one will ever come by. Anyway just in case 🙂

Golden bond called friendship

I joined my school during the year 2002. I don’t remember much but I do remember the older children welcoming us waving colorful flags. As I joined school I met a lot of friends. Some were good ones some were bad ones but that a long time ago. All people are not the same they too have their good and bad experiences. Yet we were not separated by caste, creed nothing! We were friends for a life time. There were conflicts between us but that’s said and gone and forgiven and forgotten. All sixty students of our batch were together. We proud to be in this batch. Why? We loved each others presence. Even though some were rude, some were shy, some were expressive we all understood that friends don’t come with a perfect lining. We accepted who they are and hoped to strive for the best.

While dwelling among those 11 years more than a billion things took place. There were a lot of hard times for every one of us but, we sticked together through twists and turns. Like a knitted pair of mittens, staying together keeping warm through the cold and harsh weather. And so, our friendship grew and grew unlike other things that grow there aren’t any fertilizer added to this growth only so many weeds but as soon one sprouted out we made sure that its quickly removed. At first we were just mere students who we knew not about each other but today as we bonded through the years we can say that our life today is because of our bond of 11 years. Anybody can be our friend, your neighbor, parents, brother, sister and even your school principal. When you go out to the society you won’t last long in matter of fact you really can’t and that’s why you need friends. Trust you need them as much as they need you.

I have personally experienced that there are some moments where you are afraid of doing things, especially the outside in the society.  When I am with my friends; they can bring the best out me. My friends, they have proved me wrong. They have shown me that I could fight the whole world with my single hand for they inculcated the belief that they will be holding my other hand if anything happens to me. Everyone has a best friend in their particular period of time but only a few precious friends have the same one throughout their life. If you do; you should be fortunate deep down in your heart for that person knows you inside out, from kid to teen, teen to adult and so on.
One thing I hate is talking behind a friend because when it comes to friends, it’s just not worth it participating in loose gossip, it only separates your friends even more. You know your friends better than anyone. Stop for a while and think how much the depth of friendship shared between you and your pal is.

 

“True friends are those, who inspire you to become the best you can ever be. They have full confidence in you. They would not leave you until your goal is accomplished.” This quotation I can happily say is true for I have experienced this first hand. I don’t want anything silly to break us apart. I don’t know how much the bond between you and your friends are but make the bond that is there now is strengthened so much that when you’re old and feeble you would have so much to cheer and talk about your friendship.  Do not ever think that you do not need a friend because every soul wants to feel support as an individual and neither should you think that someone else doesn’t need a friend like you.
