I got in touch with one of my old friends through Facebook.We were not in touch for many years.I was so happy and excited to speak to her after a long time.We promised to stay in touch.Speaking to her made me realize the importance of friends in our lives.Interacting with friends gives us immense joy.Don’t you agree?Wouldn’t life be boring without friends?
It’s one of the most beautiful relationships in this world,as it crosses all barriers of caste,creed,religion,country and gender.They can act as positive role models for us and have the greatest influence in our lives.I’ve come across so many friends right from school days from whom I’ve learnt so much, and I feel so blessed to be surrounded by good friends.They have helped me to grow as a human being and I’m still in the process of learning.They give us so much security,a feeling of belonging.How many times were you comforted by a friend when you were feeling low?How many times a friend has made you smile when you felt like crying?
Friendship can develop between anyone.For example,a mother can be her daughter’s best friend.Two sisters can be good friends.I have a great friend in my sister.We can confide in each other and talk about anything.It’s a strong bond.We make so many friends through blogging and social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter etc.It’s a great way to learn something new from them and in turn exchange our own ideas.
Loyalty and good communication are the keys to a healthy friendship.However,it is important to be careful while choosing our friends.It’s not the quantity of friends that matter,but the quality.They should be genuine.Good friends are a gift to our mind and soul.Let’s celebrate and enjoy the gift of friendship.The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense. (Bible Proverbs 27:9)
