No people are the whole of themselves; their friends are what makes the rest of them. Out of friendship we mine our courage, our motivation and our desire to live, to be happy and to share all that we have seen and experienced with another.
Friendship is an essential spice of our lives; without friends, we are lost.
There are people who love solitude, who would rather spend days and nights wandering alone, enjoying this world alone, but the truth is, they do have friends. Even if a friend is not a human, it is still a friend.
However, when talking about friends and friendships we usually think of our human friends, people who can get along with us and who would gladly share both our burdens and joys and vice versa.
Friendships are precious to us, even if we often take them for granted. All friendship are built out of love for another person, out of need for socializing, sharing, mutual support and understanding.
Friendship motifs are seen in all cultures around the world; the difference is seen only in particular traditional patterns, practices, rituals and habits.
Friends are one of the most important aspects of people’s life, besides their closest ones, such as their family members, children and partners. Actually, it often happens that a person would seek an advice or help from friends, rather than from someone whom he or she is blood-bound with.
Friends are our people of choice and therefore, the time spent in their company is joyful, fulfilling and relaxing.
Sometimes, the times are hard, but our friends are those who make even such times easier.
Friends would always make us feel free and relaxed about who we really are; one does not need to fake it before friends. In our friends’ company, we could be what we are, no matter if it is good or bad or both.
Before your friends you do not have to fake you are doing well; a friends would understand your weaknesses and will not judge you.
A friend would also share happy times with you; he or she will feel great about your successes and accomplishments, as if he or she was the one who made it. You will feel the same about them, as well.
