Friendship is such a delusive and zany word.We all can say a myriad of things about Friends and Friendship.So many messages,quotes about friendship.But do we exactly comprehend it?
To understand Friendship we’ll have to first look at our definition of Friends.Who are our Friends?Someone with whom we are constantly in touch?Someone in our school,in our college or in some class?Someone with whom we have something in common?Someone we like?Or Someone who makes us laugh?
Now if we know so much about Friends,then why are we betrayed by those very friends?Why do we get back stabbed by them?
This is because we never really understood what Friend and Friendship really mean.Because we judge our Friends based on only the situations when we are exultant and when things are going good.
Its whimsical how we’ve forgotten or overlooked the very elementary thing which was inculcated in us about Friends.The thing which every single one of us knows by heart.The thing we have heard countless number of times throughout our lifetime and still have never been able to administer in our life.
“A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed”
These eight words contain every single knowledge there is about Friendship.They contain the real Truth.
You don’t judge a friend on how he/she partied with you.How you had fun at some place.How you laughed together and mocked others.
This is not Friendship.What this is at most is the human need for companionship.To not be in Solitude.We need people to be around us.After all man is a social animal.
But to brand these people as your “Friends” and call this Symbiotic or even sometimes Parasitic relationship “Friendship” is the biggest hoax on earth.Believe me…You’re bound to get hurt.
Real Friendship is shown in adversity.Someone who stands up for your rights even when it might be against them.Someone who stays with you in your moments of sorrows even when he/she has reasons to rejoice.Someone whose there for you when you feel the world is against you.That’s a Friend.That’s Friendship.
