Best friends

Post by Donnavila Marie01 » 03 Aug 2017, 10:17

I admire the friendship of Godfredo Roco and Max Burns. Though it was not perfect they really are true friends up to the trying times. How do you describe your relationship with a friend?

I have a pretty good friendships. I always make sure that there is honesty and trust between my friends and I. That was something that Godfredo and Max were missing.

My best friends are the ones who have been around through thick and thin. They'll call me out on my crap, I'll call them out on theirs and we go on with our lives. I live far away from most of them and even if we don't talk frequently, we're always able to pick up just where we left off. My friends are people who would be there for me no matter what I've done, how long it's been since I've talked to them, what time it is or what they're doing, and I'd do the same for them.

I think the trying times are when friendship is really tested.

I don't have a lot of friends. The friends I do have are my very good friends. We support each other. we can even hang out silently, reading in different places but together.

The few close friends I have always inspire me to be better...I mean when we meet I feel like we are in a class teaching and learning from one another.

Friendship to me isn't as much about sharing as it is about having someone to count on. It's about trusting a person, regardless of how much you know or don't know about the situation, and being honest when things go to the gutter.

I can't imagine life without friends. Some are there for a season, which is fine, sometimes that is what's good for both at the time. Others are there for life, helping each other, being there for each other for the long hall.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

When I think about my relationship with my best friend I see that we are loyal and caring. We aren't afraid to step up and help the other person even if it may not be what we want to hear at the moment. We have tons of fun when we get together but we're also not afraid to just sit and do nothing.

There was a time when I didn't believe in friendship . I used to feel that it's just time pass or just for gossiping and when you'll need them, they will just run away to save themselves. May be that was because I had been betrayed by fake friends many times and it used to hurt like hell . But the word 'friendship' really started to mean something to me when I met a girl. She taught me what friendship is . She loved me and cared for me like a mother, like a sister and much more . It's been more than 4 years now since I met her and now friendship means everything to me .

I'm so glad for you Daraakhshan!

I have friends that I really think of simply just close acquaintances and then I have friends that I think of as family. My mom always says that siblings ought to be more than just blood related; they ought to strive to be friends and since I have 5 sisters, I know that I have 5 true friends.

Friends sacrifice for each other. Acquaintances simply try to have a mutually beneficial relationship.

One of my favourite things about having a good friend is being able to be apart and then come back together as if no time had been spent away from each other.

Me too! I believe that true friendships stand the test of time and space. And friends for me are those that can be brutally honest with you, and you with them, call you out when you're not right and vice versa. I thank God for the few I've found. Real. Honest. And true.
Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be...

I like to have friends that you can always count on. While I enjoy being with people, I tend to have just a few friends that I know I can count on. However, I like meeting new people.

I used to think I had many friends. It was when life changed that I realised who my true friends were. And those friends, I treat as I would want them to treat me. With love, respect, kindness, truthful, understanding.

Friends are those who stand together through thick and thin. Such kinds of friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget.
