Friends: What They Mean To Us

Have you ever been in a situation where you just needed someone to talk to?

If someone came to your rescue, good for you. If not, it must have sucked to be you.

In the popular TV series Friends, the theme song was “I’ll be there for you ---”. That’s how true friendship sounds and feels like.

A true friend will never ditch you when you’re emotionally down. He or She will be there to cheer you up/encourage you into taking the next positive steps or moves.

A good friend is an invaluable asset in the sense that they give you timely advice about your finances, accommodation, relationship etc.

They can even play the role of a father or a mother. Giving you sage/wise advice that can turn your life around for the better.

If you have such friends in your life, do all you can to never let them go.

How To Know Them

  1. They help you save your money. Instead of throwing a party where you are likely to spend lavishly, a good friend will tell you to save you money for better and more serious things like accommodation.

2. They help you become more productive. Still on this issue of partying, a good friend will tell you that rather than partying, why not sleep so that you will rest your mind and be more productive the next day.

3. This one isn’t going to be a long write-up. Good friends give you fatherly/motherly advice.

Some wayward friends have a role to play in your life though. Hence, I won’t tell you to ditch them all but please, by all means, pray to find good friends.

You too should aspire to be a good person, so that you can attract other good people.

How have friends impacted your life?

Kindly share your thoughts.
