What a true friend consists of....

The word friend itself has a comforting sound and feel to it. A feeling that says your not alone.

However… how many friends can you say you have at this very moment?

You might have ones that call you up to go shopping or talk to you through a boring evening at home.

Maybe you have friends that are there for you during the really hard and trying times.

But, over time when things are not bad in your life or in theirs… do you still hear from them?

Or are they there for you ONLY when THEY have a problem or when YOU have one?

TRUE FRIENDS are there not only when times are tough or when there is a crisis but during the happy and content times in your life too.

They are there for you to wish you well on your new found adventures and to give you encouragement to pursue your dreams and goals.

True friends are not jealous or envious of what you have and are there to wish MORE good fortune,success and happiness to you.

True friends are there to help give you the strength to stay on the right path and help make sure you don’t waiver.

If you should fall or not succeed at what you do… true friends are there to help you stand up and face the world again without shame or embarrassment.

So ask yourself today… how many friends do I have? How many are there for me when life is good and all is well?

Now remember…THOSE friends are your TRUE FRIENDS.

What a true friend consists of.... by 

I wrote this last year when I was thinking about what a TRUE FRIEND really consists of.

I concluded in my final thoughts that I had 2 real friends to my name. Two that were there for me 24/7/365 and for that I was grateful. :)

  • Thank you for your comment. It takes a little thought but most of us are fortunate if we have ONE true friend. At the time I wrote this I had 2. The only reason I am down to 1 now is because he passed away Dec 2008. Rest In Peace my friend…:)

    Julie, I have one TRUE FRIEND! Although she lives so far away from me, she is still my one and ONLY real friend! She knows who she is! She’s a very beautiful person, inside, outside, and all over. She writes beautiful things, makes beautiful art, takes beautiful photos, sings very beautifully. I only wish I could be “close” to this friend, she would be very nice to see in person. She brings me joy and happiness, lets me vent in frustration, knows my feelings and trusts me with her thoughts and feelings, and there’s one thing, we have never heard each others voices. To this friend, I give a huge tight hug too. She’s so very special! I have FOUND my one TRUE FRIEND!

    Julie’s above writing was NOT written for me, but it has such a closeness to how my friendship is with her.

    One of my past friends once wrote

    You need to be careful whom your true friends are
    At the time I did not know what he meant
    But as time went on
    I realised what he meant and refering too was himself
    His own needs and selfishness
    Those that use you
    Take advantage
    of your kindness
    They try to control you
    Dampen and empty your soul
    Steal You Heart
    Your Creative Energy
    And All your Worldly Possessions if not careful
    At times he seemed to be a true friend
    One of the only few I could Trust
    But he banked on the trust
    So he could deceive and concor

  • I know that all too well too…Its so sad to think how we can be used and abused by those we TRUST. True friends are few and FAR between. Thanks for your response.. very insightful.

    My question: have I been a true friend? Inconvenient truth: never. Still, you remind me that hope might mend; we are all less than angels.

  • My problem is that I have always been true to “my friends” but they were not always so true to me. Since I wrote this.. one of the two friends passed away.. leaving me with one true friend. This writing will really make you think about yourself and others. THANK YOU for your comment. :)
