I must say that I have collected and dished alot of friends in my life only to realize at the end who really cares for me. I consider these love ones family even though we are not blood. My love for them comes sincerely from the heart. Do you actually have friend you can count on despite the situation, whether you're wrong or right, win or lose, up or down, smile or frown?

I do have lots of friends, but very few 'True Friends'. Most of them are just friends in the name of friends. A few years ago, I had a wake up call. I suddenly realized one morning that some of the friends who I thought were my real friends would not help me if I need them. And that one person, who I don't really consider as a friend, would do anything to help me. I know now who my real friends are, who will be with me, by my side, if anything happened. Those who would not be afraid to give me a piece of their minds if I step out of line, but would happily lend a helping hand to pick me up when I fall down.

I woke up and came to that conclusion on day to when I needed help and I scrolled threw my phone and out of all the numbers I had there weren't many I could dial.

I have several I can actually consider friends because I try not to mistaken the term friend too loosely. A true friend reciprocate unconditional love and care and I find that some just like to collect popularity instead of actually being a true friend. So my small circle I certainly can rely on as true friends.

True. There's a difference between friends and acquaintances.
