Is it important to have friends in life? Some say that friends support us deal with stress, make better lifestyle choices that keep us strong, and rebound from health issues and disease more quickly. Some say that friends only give us unhealthy peer pressure, lure us to do things that will lead us astray, and make us push ourselves to the limit, which will bound us to a frightful lifestyle.
Which is true? Which is not? Do you have friends? How are they affecting your character? Do they support you by any means, or do they support you in some parties and gatherings?
Shakespeare-ism’s says that “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.”
I believe this phrase has a role in “friendship.” It’s the golden rule – do to others what you want others to do to you. This explains why we must love all. Friendship means loving others.
Do you love your friends? Do they love you back? I got to admit. I trust only a few. There are times that I don’t even trust anybody, even myself. Trust is a very fragile characteristic of a human. Once it’s broken into pieces, you are not able to reconstruct it. Time can only say when we can rebuild that trust.
Do you trust your friends? Do they trust you back? Because of love, we must do wrong to none. We might miss something or act unintentionally that will hurt someone’s feelings, but we must say ‘sorry’ with sincerity as soon as we realize it. Did you ever feel that guilt and say sorry to your friend? Did your friend say sorry to you?
If someone makes you feel negative inside-out, gives you unhealthy pressure, and silently de-grading your personality, then that is someone else which you need to disconnect.
Friends add up new colors to our horizon. Friends give us a new world that we don’t even realize is beautifully existing. Friends support each other by any means because of love. Friends love us like their own selves. There is no selfishness in friendship. Friends inspire us to do good and to be the best version of ourselves.
Yes, friends are important in our life. Do you have such friends? If yes, then treasure them. If none, perhaps you might need to be friends with yourself first! Sooner or later, everything will follow.
