They say that friends are far more better than relatives that when ever we are in need they respond better than our relatives who make use of us when we are good. May be few friends also so, but they say mostly so what do you feel?

I think that would be a case to case basis, it depends on the quality or depth of relationship you have with you relatives or friends. I have some Aunts who are very much concerned with the health of my father(their brother) who have a kidney problem and I have some Aunts who seem not to care about him. He has also some friends who when he undergone surgical operation twice, did not even visit him once in the hospital. As for me, I get myself close to those friends who shows me "genuine friendship" and doesn't attend to those who remembers me only in their time of need.

I forgot to mention that my father is a good father and is a good brother. Sometimes people can be mean even if you have treated them well or even you have done them good deed in the past. So I think that it would also depend on the relative's or friend's personality or character.

I would like to answer your question whom I will believe --- friends or relatives. It really depends on how close you are. Both will always give you advices and comments but it is always the relatives who are more frank in telling you things that are leaning towards the "not-so-good" areas. In times of my need, there are very good friends who respond immediately when I need them. There are also relatives that would do the same. I think it really depends on what kind of relationship you have with each type of people.

Both friends and relatives are precious to us if they do treat us as their friends and relatives. If so, it is sure that they will give us a hand if we are in trouble; otherwise, if they are the mean person or just want to make use of us when we are good, neither of them will help us. So everything depens on what kind of person they are, and how strong our relationship is.

In my eyes, both friends and relatives are important parts in our life. Life is a journey. When we get into some troubles in such a journey, both friends and relatives can give us a hand and help us get out of scrapes. For various reasons, most people will keep away from their relatives and at the same time, people often spend much time with their friends. Of course, the biggest difference between friends and relatives is that we can make friends all the time as long as you need. Have a nice day and enjoy a better life with your friends and relatives!
