What is your idea of a friend?

December 7, 2008 10:05am CST
To me a friend is someone who accepts you for who you are. He is also someone who shares some common interests with you. A friend is also someone there in times of need. A friend in need is a friend indeed!

Yes, a friend is someone who accepts you for who you are. I would say a friend is someone for whom you are ready to die if need be. At the same time, he is the one who is ready to die for you if need be. Someone who understands you, your feelings, your emotions, your angers, your everything. I better say here that friendship is a two way road, not one way. The things i said about friend sre true for you also. Meaning the care, feelings etc. should be from both sides. Once a friend of mine told me something, long back, but I still remember his words vividly. I will quote him -"A father is a father, a mother is a mother, a sister is a sister, a brother is a brother, a hubby is a hubby, a wife is a wife, a teacher is a teacher BUT, a friend is someone who can assume any or all the roles mentioned"- unique, won't you agree?

I believe on what the first responder said, a friend is an extension of one's life. A psychology student friend told me that our friends are most likely the people we can relate ourselves too. Meaning, they are like ourselves. We see ourselves to our friends. A true friend is someone who is always there for you. I agree very much. Also, a friend is one of the best things God has ever given to us.

A good friend won't judge your actions but they will help you realize your faults.

Friend is someone who holds your hand more tightly when you tell him/her to leave you alone.

That is a very nice definition of what friendship is. Well rounded and all. Good friends are hard to find. Time shows whether they are good and faithful friends also.
