Who is a friend and why do we need it?Well,there is no actual definition or anything that could define it.

In my opinion,I would say “a  friend is someone who understands you emotionally and mentally without judging you”.

Some traits of a true friendship :

  • Who listens to you patiently without any distraction.
  • Who understands your silence more than your words.
  • Know your mental situation without even you telling him/her.
  • Who comes up with a solution to your troubles.
  • Who is unbiased and leads you to the right road without having any hidden motives.
  • You trust that person completely and know in your deep corners of your heart that he/she will have their back with you. 
  • Who pushes and challenges you to take the tougher road and brings you out of the comfort zone.(Well wisher)
  • Who is ready to bear the brunt of your anger without leaving your side.
  • Who knows you  in and out.
  • Who prioritizes you,no matter what.
  • Who pampers you and there’s no bit of competition anywhere.
  • You both are alike in some or other way.In other words,you share the same mindset.
  • Who gives you a positive vibe by their presence or actions(personal opinion)

5 Types of People you should not consider as Friends:

  • Who considers every situation as competition.
  • Who are jealous of you(it can be noted from their actions).
  • Who are selfish(only contacts you when they need something)
  • Who criticizes you black and blue in your back(without your presence)
  • Who considers you inferior.(never respects you)

Some of my personal best friends quotes are :

  • A good friend is like a 4 leaf clover,hard to find & lucky to have.
  • It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.
  • A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flowers in your garden.
  • A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.
  • Sometimes being with your best friend is all the therapy you need.
  • True friends are like diamonds — bright, beautiful, valuable, and always in style.
  • A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.

To sum it up, I would define as :a genuine or real friend is like a rare gem now-a-days,very difficult to find and very difficult to maintain.Who helps you in your tough time without any selfish motive or any expectations to be helped in return is what you call a true friendship and it wouldn’t be perfect as there would be misunderstandings.But that is what you should communicate and try to comprehend the problem of the rift that arose between you two by having mutual respect towards each other and never allowing that dangerous ego to intervene .

I have many good acquaintances but have my share of close friends,whom I trust and love,though there are times we don’t even speak or message but we know we have there for each other.As it is rightly called “Har Ek Friend zaruri hota hai – meaning every friend is needed in life .”

Well,I think this essays the meaning of Friendship!!
