I Cherish True Friendships

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 26,448 People

    A person can have many associates,

    acquaintances and people in their contact list, but true friends don't come in large numbers. They're the ones who will stay there to the end and love you from a distance even when you're stupid enough to push them away. They see you for who you actually are and not the...

    our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." - Albert Schweitzer

    I have many acquaintances

    but few true friends. My best local friend moved 1500 miles from here. However, we make time to talk and share a beer or two . Cheers for true friendships in real and virtual world .

    It Is As Simple As That

    Create a "bow" with people who makes you feel well, who seems to be true. And untie the "knot" that fasten you to the ones who were significant in your life. But unfortunately, from their own mistakes, they stopped being. Knot pinches, bow decorates… "Friends" pinches, true...

    I've gone through a lot of friends growing up

    but now I seem to have narrowed my close ones and have stuck with them. A year or so after my husband and I started dating, his best friend started dating someone. When I first met her I thought she was a little quirky and odd so I didn't imagine ever having the relationship I...

    What Is A Friend

    A friend is some one who will be there for you not just when they want to be but when they know you need them to be. Someone who will take time out of there day no matter how busy they are just to check on you. Someone who will let you rant and let you cry. Someone who will not...

    I think of friends as another family to me.

    They are always there when I need and I can depend on them. They are the closest family when your own family is far from you. Friends are easy to make, true friends are hard to find.

    I really do. I have so few of them

    that the ones I have are a treasure and so few people actually know who they are. They are the ones I walk up to and they know right away that I need a hug. Today I ran into one of my friends from work. I have received a "half-hug" from him before- like a "sort of hug that is...

    when friendship is formed. as in a vessel, drop by drop, which makes it run over; as in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over. -James Boswell

    I have the greatest best friend in the world.

    I was having a rough morning and without a word she emailed and sent me a text asking if I was ok. I don't know how she knew but she did. We have a special bond and we can tell each other anything. Anything, no judgement.

    A true friend encourages us,

    comforts us, supports us like a big easy chair, offering us a safe refuge from the world.What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun.If you have one true friend you have more than your share.

    Or at least I used to.

    Can't really tell who's your friend and who's not. I've had plenty of people tell they will always be there for me, but it turned out to be lies. They left just like the others. No warning, no explanation, nothing.

    If you find someone who makes you smile,

    who checks up on you often to see if you're okay, who watches out for you and wants the very best for you, don't let them go. Keep them close and don't take them for granted. People like that are hard to find. If you do ever lose them, the memories will always make you smile, so...

    True friendship is hard to come by

    and I am fortunate enough to have one. We can talk for over 12 hours and my apartment will be filled with laughter. We don't expect to gain anything from each other and we're understanding of each other. I hope to never lose this friend.
