life is so blessed with friends whom we depend on most of the times. they are those people whom you confide with when everything is not good. when things does not go right, they are those persons who really cares. but somehow, it is not always the case. there are times when we lost them. maybe because we sinned against them that caused them to be so mad about you or maybe some have moved to other place or some have gone to heaven.. well, whatever the case will be, we still should move on. it is not really easy, but it is the only way to be. we cannot hold on and we cannot really be waiting for them to be on our side for always. life is a continuous process. if you stop, there will be no output, and we will be outrun... what about you, will still move on without a friend?

I do all i can to avoid a total loss of friendship, even if it means just an occasional chat/phone call because i no longer live in the same country for example, as real ones are very hard to find. But sometimes is unavoidable. Life changes us all, so it becomes pointless to keep trying to be friend with somebody who is no longer the person we used to know. It's even hard to describe how it can happen, but we all need to move on eventually. You can't just live on the past, for how much hard it can be sometimes to build up your future.

you have the saddest response, but hitting. i give you my best response. thanks for the insights. you are really right. and so, we really cannot live with our past. to us right now, let us move on, though it is so much harder. friends is something that we really we cant live without. they are those exceptional persons who will make our world a better place, aside from our family. they are those who understands somehow.. but we really cannot hold them forever...hmmmm

Thanks, didn't want to sadden you, but you got to consider that past experiences are also what make us strong to make a better future. Even if it becomes harder to move on, it also mean that it's gonna be worth it. It's like saying "now the worse has passed", only better things are gonna come. Friends are something we desperately need and want, but we got to be sure that they need and want us as well. When that changes, let it go, you'll treasure wonderful memories, you'll know that they'll make new friends as well as you, and togheter you'll still be making the world a better place. Remember though that we are our own best friends. As long as we understand ourselves, we can hold on friends and family the same way as they will hold on us. Adding you as friend if you want, you look like a nice guy.

I think in this world their is no such thing as permanet you can only have yourself. It is very hard to loose a friend I think their is always a world to let go. We just hope and pray for them that they will have happiness good health and a better life. Friends it comes and go it doesn't stop. And we just keep on moving on and learn life on our own. I learn a lot of pains from my friends and I become stronger. We are just a passer by in friendship we don't ask in return. We just make most of it. Have a nice day!

you are true there my friend. but it would be better when the friendship would last that long, even when we are getting old or when we are adult.

Friends are very important for life. There could be people without mom, dad or faith in God..But I don't think there would be any person without a friend. I have three close friends. And one of them is very close. And after our college, we had to move.But we still have contacts and we share our memories. So I don't think friendship grows only we are near. It all depends on how the persons deal with it. You can be best friends even if you cannot meet regularly. Now my friends have their own families and settled well in different places. But still we call each other and the friendship is alive.

Hi Jingbautista, When i move here in holland i lost a lot of friends in Philippines.One until 4 years we keep contacted in chat and tel. but after a while it just stopped.I understand what happened ,i never forget them even once.My friend stay in my heart even we dont have contact anymore.People move on if the situwation is hurting them or giving them a difficult time.They move on....I tried it many time the more i have contact in Philippines the more i misses all my friends and family. I lose friend but i gain some more when i open my heart to have a new friend.I cant live w/out friends in my life. Have a nice day! Greetings from Che!

hi there! yes you are right! having a friend is really a good thing, cause just like what you've said they are the ones who can listen to whatever problems you have in life.,but even without them life should be moved on. no one can help you in anything except yourself and God.,so it would be better to be with your life on your own for whatever happens you will not be blame anyone.,thanks and have a nice day ahead!

you are right. but friends were also the things that GOD is blessing us.. they are heaven sent with the purpose of having our burdens much easier than it is used to be...
