What does it mean?
In a light manner; it means someone who you can enjoy the moments. Deeply it means a person who will be there for you through thick and thin, rise and fall, success and failure.
But how would we ever know, whom is worthy enough to be called a FRIEND!
Friend has become a loose term; we throw it around easily. We call every other person we interact with “A friend”, which leads our brain to actually believe that the person we loosely call our friend is actually a friend. So when time gets tough and those so-called “friends” bail on us we fall apart; like a Lego house. We make ourselves so emotionally involved with that fake relation that when the hazy curtain of false emotions drop, we fail to accept the reality. But that’s only one way to look at it.
Then there are people who expect so much from a friend that they suffocate them. They become clingy, they forget that they have their own life too. They make the other person so claustrophobic that they bail out on them. They want to talk to them everyday, text each and every other day and even in a crowd be with only them. Such people don’t have the stomach to see their friend make other acquaintance and become so insecure that they start believing that they are worthless; they manipulate people and make them stay. So they truly lose their worth.
And then there are some friendships, when two people truly understand each other, they know when to intervene and when to step back, they know each other like the back of their hand; and that sort of friendship is hard to acquire, only some lucky people have that sort of friend.
