A True Friend

February 20, 2021

The most beautiful and precious relationship in this world is Friendship.

God has not given us the choice to choose who will be our Parents, Family, Relatives. But God has given us the choice to choose friends for ourselves. God has left the decision of choosing friends to us. So choose your friends wisely.

If one gets good, selfless, real friends in life, their entire life becomes heaven. Meanwhile, if we choose the wrong friends, our entire life becomes hell. Friends have that power to change our life either in a good or in a bad way. Next to our Parents and Family, we give importance to our Friends. We do many sacrifices for our friends. There are people who forget & leave their family for friends. For some, friends will be so important in their lives.

Friends' decisions influence teenagers the most. So teenagers should have good friends around them. They should be very cautious while choosing true, selfless, trustworthy friends.

Good and wise Friends will always support you, in your bad times and enjoy and celebrate with your success. Friendship is a pure relationship which is free from discrimination, jealousy, ego, hatred, bluff, self-esteem, forwardness,. Wise friends can make our life like a garden full of blossoms and pleasant odours.

Good Friends are the ones who will support you for doing good things and moving ahead in life. They will also Stop you, when you go on a wrong path, and direct you the right way. First, they will be equally happy on your achievement and also give their shoulder to cry during your failures and motivate you to go ahead. This relation is purest as water, it can flow & take you anywhere in life. Nowadays getting good, true, selfless friends is very difficult in these times as almost all are selfish, jealous of each other's success. Only a few are genuine and trustworthy.

There is a saying that one person is recognised in society by seeing his friends circle. If a person has good friends, he is respected in the society. In contrast, if we make bad friends, then society will think that we are also bad like our friends. One wrong decision can change your entire life. We are always judged by our friends' behaviour by society. So we need to be very cautious while choosing friends.

I really have good friends in my life, who are very supportive of my good works and are equally happy with my achievements. They also stop me if I go on the wrong path and correct me. I am the luckiest person to get such good, caring, loving, genuine friends. From my schooling till now I have only a few friends who are close to my heart and their love and affection will remain in my heart forever. I am grateful to God that he gave me the option to choose my friends for myself. My life became more colourful and joyful because of having and choosing good friends. One fact: Realest people's friend circle is too small because it's not everyone's cup of tea to be with real people. So if your friend circle is small, that means you are the most real person.

I really hope and pray that each one of us gets good friends in life. Friends really add colours & flavours to our life. Till our last breath, they give their hand of support. They never ditch or leave you.

Thus friendship is a valuable relationship in this world. God has given us liberty, freedom to choose friends, so please choose your friends wisely. Hope all our friends are good and this friendship remains & prevails forever.
