The beauty of childhood is innocence. Children are often shielded by once parents by the cruel realities of life. To most young children, life is but rainbows and candies.
Although children are often warned about bad people and are taught to never to talk to strangers, children at this age are oblivious to the fact that some people can simply be cruel.
Everything is simple. Everything is easy. And true friendships could be forged with a simple hi or hello.
Just a mere few minutes spent at the playground could start up a long lasting friendship between two innocent children.
A pact made and sealed with a pinky swear.
Being an adult is something a person can’t wait to be, back in the day where one is so restricted by the strict rules and regulations.
Do you remember the days where you can’t wait to. . .
1. Drive legally
2. Drink legally
3. And maybe even… Vote Legally.
As an adult, all we ever could hope for is to turn back time and relive our childhood days.
And just to be free responsibilities such as. . .
1. Paying rent
2. Buying groceries
3. And all adult related things.
Most importantly, we want to go back to a time where betrayal was just a word and not an experience.
Making friends as a “grown up” has now became more complicated.
We bare scars and are now filled of hurt feelings that have slowly piled up through the years.
We are now hesitant to approach new people carrying fears of being judged and rejected.
We are now slightly broken… and scared.
IF Friendships fall into place easily… isn’t it one worth writing in the books?
Finding a friend who would stick up to you in both the good times and the bad…
IS A BLESSING.
Finding a friend who wouldn’t judge your past but instead look to the present and guide you to a better future…
IS A GIFT.
Finding a friend who would laugh with you in good times, who would wipe a way the tears during sad times and who you pick up the pieces after you fell apart…
Blessings, gifts and miracles are things meant to be treasured deeply.
But what is a TRUE FRIEND really? Is it something that can be define?
Is there a specific timeline and WHEN you can meet such amazing people?
There are some of the questions that keep playing in my head over and over again.
Through the years, I’ve met various people of different walks of life. Each and everyone have different personalities.
So how do I manage to “segregate” the true from the fleeting.
Was it through tested time?
Was it through bad and the good times we shared together?
Was it through the connection we made with one another?
But one thing I’m sure of is this.
True friendships are hard to come by. Once you come across one, grab hold of it and never let go.
So what are your thoughts?
What are the different attributes that you look for in a friend?
Care to share some found memories with your best friend?
Feel free to answer any of the bolded questions up above. Or feel free to share anything you feel about a friend.
Can’t wait to hear from you 😊
