“A Friend” “A Best Friend”


I talk to many people. That makes people around me have a misconception on me. They think that I have many friends. The reality is I don’t have many friends.

I don’t even have any best friend. I believe it’s very hard to find a best friend. They are almost don’t exists. Some may call themselves as a best friend without even knowing the real true definition of it.

Not everyone you know is your friend. That’s the term we use when one spoke to a total stranger for more than 15 minutes. We will address them as a friend because we want to be kind to everyone.

A friend is not just a word. It’s more than that. The word friend itself carries certain principles or at least the basics have to be fulfilled at all times for the friendship to stay longer.

The best part is one couldn’t easily identify their real friend. As an Indian proverb says, you can only able to identify them on your tough times. A true friend will stand by your side when you needed them the most.

Here I am. I’m not a person that buy you gifts, cook your favorite food, call you frequently, text you to know your wellbeing or entertain your WhatsApp texts. But, I’m the kind of person that will stand there for you when you need me the most. I will never leave you when you need that “someone” to be there for you.

I’m the kind of person that always remembers your kindness towards me. We may grow apart but I will never forget to thank you for what you have done to me.

If you expect me to reply to your texts, entertain your calls, cook for you or spoil you with gifts, I’m sorry. I couldn’t afford to do that simply because of time constraints.

I have a different perception of the word called “a friend”.
