‘We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends help us stay young”Letty Cottin Pogrebin
It’s true that peers share common interest because they are in the same age group,but still you can share interests with people who are younger or older than you.In fact you can learn a lot from different kinds of conversations.
Personally I feel there is no age limit.
Age becomes just a number on many occasions,and friendship is no different.
Remember Friendship just happens.
Never judge people by the age.
As long as you share mutual interest,comfortable with each other,and even supportive in situations that demand your attention difference in age makes no difference.
The joy that the friendship gives irrespective of the age difference can not be explained by these two friends concerned.
Friendship vibes are a wonderful feelings as long as
you don’t cross the limits or
Become possessive or
Have High expectations or
Develop emotional dependency.
Doesn’t everybody deserve a Best Friend Forever ?
Follow your heart but carry your mind too.
” One of the best things about Friendship is that age doesn’t matter ” Anonymous
Do you not long for that particular friendship which completes you ?
What is the definition of friendship ?
Voluntary relationship between people that lasts a long time and those involved are concerned about each other. It develops from shared interests and experiences and is mutually gratifying. source Psychology dictionary.com
Friendship is not based on sex,or age or other reasons
What is the best part in friendship ?
Don’t you think friendship in the form of shared interests and shared experiences which become memories over the time.
Are you not,the happiest when you cherish these wonderful memories of life,at the time of stress ?
Not just that,even when you both chat or speak to each other,recollecting some of the shared moments,shared jokes,even wondering how the time moving unusually fast,even making that moment wonderful !
What I am stressing is,the shared memories become a life’s Treasure.
Don’t you agree this is the best part in friendship ?
What happens,when friendship is forged ?
Definitely,the concern for each other increases.
Shared interest further strengthens the bond.
These two can happen only when you make a sincere effort to develop an emotional bond,by opening up,since you both are connected by mutual trust’ by this time.
How to make an emotional bond ? (somebody may even call this emotional link or cosmic link)
here I wish to make it clear that there is a difference between physical attraction and emotional attraction and physical attraction is a different subject for some other time discussion.
The efforts for emotional connection must come from both the friends,willing to make sincere efforts.
Four things are extremely important
4. Zero Ego
If these things are achieved from both sides,automatically emotional link is evolved
Trust – should be 100% .You can share your personal stories of mutual interest, and start bonding,and be sincere and frank.communicate regularly and develop mutual confidence
Honesty – should be 100%.Be honest in your communications.Prevent miscommunications.
Sacrifice – should be 100%.If Friends happen to be in the same place ,make yourself available Never avoid or give excuses.If you both happen to be in different cities,provide moral support as much as possible constantly.
Ego – Here there is only one solution.. Destroy the ego feelings instantly.
Finally No one is rich than a person who has a true friend
Just two interesting quotes
How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live ’em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give ’em.” Shell Silverstein
To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.” Brandy Snyder
Don’t you agree with me that True friendship is difficult since finding a true friend is the hardest.
” A friend is some one who understands your past,believe in your future….accepts you to-day the way you are “. Unknown
We may not realize the value of friendship until the time it is given when it is badly needed,so we have to cultivate and cherish the friendship .
Make aware to your friends how much they mean to you and how well they contribute to your happiness from your routine boring life.
Don’t ask me how to pick up a true friend or how to know,that the other person can be a good and even a true friend.
This is a difficult subject and can be discussed on another day.
The following quote is my feeling ,whenever I interact with my true friends.
Friendship is a treasured gift,and every time I talk with you I feel as if I’m getting richer and richer “. Unknown
Friends can even become Besties.
True friendship is ‘Magical’ !!
“Friendship is not about whom you have known the longest,it’s about who walked into your life and said “I’m here for you” and proved it. Unknown
The true friend helps me being a counselor in times of distress ,
Can be my confidant when the situation demands,most importantly gives all the strength I need when I am the weakest at some point of time of my life.
Now you will ask me…What is the secret of sustaining this friendship ??
Certain things come to my mind,which can further the bond.
1. Be frank.Accept the drawbacks or short fall either of you may possess.
No body is perfect in this world and everybody has some story to tell and as a true friend you are willing to listen.Provide the much-needed leaning shoulder.Respect the individuality.Even if situation demands call spade a spade and explain the realities.Never thrust your opinions.When you tell the truth let the other person accept this rather than doubting and vice versa.
2. Develop the principle of ‘forget and forgive’ since we know we are never free of committing the mistakes and it’s human to do mistakes.
3.Try to recollect the fun moments or joyous moments you both had while spending time together or enjoying the jokes during your chat times.
4.Share the happiness together.
The happiness ,one can feel only when one is able to share with the other.
Remember you can never enjoy happiness all alone.
Thank you my friends for patiently reading.
Now please share your personal experience on ‘Gift of Friendship’ be on-line or off-line.
Will you be my friend?
I like us to be friends;
So that you can call me friend;
So that you can call me
Or dear friend;
Is what I want us to be;
I want us to be
Friendship is a good thing;
The world needs true friends;
Who have become so scarce
If there were more friends,
There would be
And the world would be
An excellent place for all.
