I Cherish True Friendships

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 33,348 People

    I recently reconnected with a friend

    that I had at a time in my life when I seemed to have it all figured out. While we talked I suddenly felt an overwhelming need to drop the pretenses and tell her what was truly going on in my life since the last time we saw one another. Once she heard how things had taken a turn...

    I have one true friend in the area

    where I now live and she is moving away in one month. I am already feeling alone and sad because ever since we met we have both been each other's stability through life's chaos. True friends never judge nor forget. I hope to make new friends as time passes. It takes a while to...

    Chatted with one of my friends

    after many years. Also heard that someone else enquired about me. It feels good to know that people have not forgotten me entirely (often I assume they do). Thank God for these special moments that put a brief smile on my face :)

    There are so few people in this world

    that you actually connect with...it shocks me because there are so many people IN this world. Making friends was so much easier when I was a kid. You went to their house to play, talked on the phone, hung out at school, went to the movies or wherever...I have a few friends...

    We do not need to see each other every day.

    But it is so nice you can watch a sunset ( could be either gender and I am not speaking in romantic terms here). We were sipping a scotch and no words were spoken for a while, there was no need since we both knew we were having a great time and we were lucky to be witnessing a...

    Almost everyone wants at least one friend with

    whom you can be totally yourself and who holds no conditions but accepts you as you are. But I have seen that for most people it is very bitter to accept that the reality is not a movie and so there is no need for defensiveness in trying to prove that it is still possible to...

    I never cry when people move to other cities (I

    miss them, but I will not shed a tear). The only friend (or maybe he was more than a friend) I cried over went by the name of Daniel. To this day, he does not know nor will he ever know it unless he has an EP id and bumps into me over here ;)

    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 .

    A friend is someone who gives you total freedom

    to be yourself and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to-letting a person be what he (she) really is.Jim Morrison

    Real friends say sorry,

    don't let misunderstandings get in the way, or let their pride stop them putting things right. I am glad I have friends who help me to feel better when I think I may have upset them.

    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 don't have very many friends.

    I have been used and screwed over so many times by friends; therefore now I am very careful who I choose as a friend. I would rather have one good friend who I could talk to or hang out with who is true and honest with me. I don't like to be used or abused.

    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.

    Relationships are like a mirror: what reflects

    back is how you treat the other person. Personally, I would say grow up, forgive (even if you cannot forget). That is the mark of a true friendship
