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.

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.
