About Friends

There are friends for a season, friends for a reason and friends for a lifetime. There are many titles attached to friendship; oldest friend, frenemies, long distance friends and the all-time popular BFFs (best friends forever). Research shows that if individuals have been friends for over 7 years they will most likely be friends for a lifetime. Even so, I believe that emphasis should be placed on ‘MOST LIKELY’, since people change with time. The friend you knew yesterday, the friend you know today, won’t be the same person 1 year from now. Also, circumstances has a way of changing people, and many times what we believe to be changes are just parts of the person’s character we had never seen. Accordingly, it is often said that your best friend is your worst enemy, but if we kept this in mind, many of us wouldn’t have any friends at all.. Yet, despite the risks involved, the benefits of having friends outweighs the disadvantages.

However, some of us have been blessed with parents with whom we have great relationships with, and might not recognize the necessity of close friends. On the contrary, though mom and dad might have already experienced whatever woes you are experiencing and can give you good advice, nothing beats having someone to go through it with. The fact is your current woes, are nothing but distant memories to your parents. Having a friend or friends who are experiencing what you’re experiencing make it a lot easier. And the more you go through together, the stronger your friendship will become.

The bond that joins friends together and keeps them together is something special. Friendships are relationships not reliant on DNA or intimate emotions, it is solely built on trust. Thus, it is quite fragile, yet strong. There are many friends who have been through thick and thin, and are still close. Though when you think about it, there is more to lose than to gain in a friendship, which explains why emphasis is always placed on choosing your friends wisely. The friends you meet in university are usually the friends that you keep for your lifetime. I credit that to being due to the fact that that is the time when you discover your true self, and what you want out of life. Plus as you get older and start living your live, there isn’t much time to meet and connect with a lot of people.

One major part of finding good friends is where you look. Personally, I have found the most amazing friends at university, the type of friends you keep for a lifetime. Still, keep in mind “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24. Treat your friends well, but never forget that the best friend, your true BFF, will always be Jesus Christ.
