“A friend in need is a friend indeed” We all have that friend in our lives and have played that role as a real good friend to others. Yes, friendship is vital for life. And with such a friend in our lives we are proud to point out and say “that’s my friend that I count on”; even God was proud to reveal to humankind His friend “… Abraham my friend…” Isaiah 41:8
But the real friend is the one that lasts, right? Not the one who just turns around and leaves for the most stupid reasons. And believe me, you never know exactly if your friend is really a friend until you face troubles. Let’s say you had a little misunderstanding, and it felt bad, as if the world ended; but because you have a strong relationship, you were able to solve that little issue. The beautiful thing is that after such an incident your friendship is now stronger than ever before, and yes your world is back to life.
But there’s this type of friendship that’s really confusing. There’s this friend you really really really love, but… Let’s elaborate more on this subject. That person is always ready to help you, would never let you down, always there to cheer you up, shows you how special you are, and you try to do the same in return. That person is the one you care about the most, and one thing you know for sure you never want that person upset or bothered. So far so good? But at times, when you just need to talk to him/her, they are not there. Sorry, allow me to rephrase that last sentence: they are there, they exist, but they ignore you. How do you feel when that happens? You start to question everything, and all those memories you shared. You even blame yourself, and wonder if it’s something you have done that bothered them. Ask them if there’s something wrong? Well you’re somehow sure what their answer will be, and you know it’s not going to solve matters at all. Fight for that friendship, or let time solve it? I absolutely have no idea.
